Time Magazine Blames Weekend Tornadoes On Global Warming

North Carolina has the biggest tornado swarm since CO2 was below 350 ppm, so the Time Magazine geniuses immediately try to blame it on CO2.

Superstition, ill-logic and  general stupidity reigns supreme.

    Time magazine is a political rag.

  2. Amino Acids in Meteorites says:

    The small, political mind of the editor of Time can be seen in this video:

    Note also how they never mentioned that they were worse in the mid-60’s to mid-70’s. Funny that.

  4. Sleepalot says:

    That tornado chart only seems to go to 2007.
    WUWT?

    • That is when the chart was published.

      • Doug Proctor says:

        Which means that the warmists can say “that was then, this is now”.

        I was in Churchill, Manitoba, on the path of the migrating polar bear, two summers ago. Big Global Warming site. In the science exhibit museum was a local temperature graph. Last data: 1988. Didn’t mean a thing to the warmists in Churchill: details, details, don’t ya know.

  5. Andy Weiss says:

    In 1840, a single tornado killed over 300 in Natchez, MS. That was long before the days of global warming. There were 3 tornadoes in 1953 that killed 90+ people. No single tornado has killed 90 since. There is no trend toward “worse” or more deadly tornadoes, even with huge increases in population.

  6. Tory says:

    Along with superstition, ill-logic and general stupidity, don’t forget to add evil deceit.

  7. Bill says:

    We’ve blown past the benchmarks of the mid-70s and still have several days left of severe storms body rocking the US. It’s one thing to say that this is correlation and not causation re: increased CO2 levels, it’s another thing entirely to disregard current storm data.

    This post needs to be updated with the following from The Weather Channel:

    Record April: Severe Weather Scorecard

    Updated: April 26, 2011 11:30 am ET
    It’s been an April to remember (or perhaps forget) as far as severe weather is concerned. We’ve had six major severe weather events, some lasting multiple days.

    TWC Severe Weather Expert, Dr. Greg Forbes (Find him on Facebook) now says April has set a tentative record, with 292 confirmed April tornadoes in the U.S., breaking the old mark of 267 tornadoes in 1974. Keep in mind, an average entire month of April sees “only” 163 tornadoes.

    There have been over 5400 severe weather reports (tornadoes, hail, and high winds/wind damage) so far in April. On average, only about 3300 severe weather reports are tallied in an entire April nationwide.

  8. Gerald Einem says:

    The question isn’t simply “is there a link between climate change and tornadoes” Instead you must connect the dots between ALL of the recent sever sever weather event around the world and climate change. If you understand the physics of climate change ,the weather we are seeing is what you would expect.
