The “New Normal” : Lie About Everything

May 2011, brought the Joplin tornado. We were told at the time that was the new normal.

No Tornado Deaths in May 2012

Jun 7th, 2012 | By Harold Brooks | Category:  U.S. Severe Weather Blog  In May 2012, there were no tornado deaths in the United States. How unusual was that?  We can look at the record of tornado deaths, discussed here, dating back to 1875. The last time there were no deaths in the month of May was in 2005. Prior to that, it was 1994. Overall, there have been 15 years in the 138 years of the record (1875-2012) with no deaths in the month of May, so we’d expect that to happen about once every decade.

    Do you know what the 2012 season total is for tornado fatalities and where that ranks historically? When last year the total was high (but by no means a record high) the alarmists could not talking about it.

  2. Dave N says:

    Just another trick in the alarmist playbook: take an event, declare it the “new normal”, despite that it hasn’t occurred before. That it doesn’t occur later is no surprise, yet alarmists still refer to the event as evidence of AGW.

    Insulting people’s intelligence one event at a time.

    Chicago is in the 90s the next few days starting today.

    • It is unprecedented to have hot days during the summer.

      • John B., M.D. says:

        The temp goes up, the temp goes down. It is called weather.
        No claim is made about cause.
        Steve, when you show temperature departure and rain data, you tend to post it only when cooler and wetter. That’s cherrypicking. You make your case much better when posting historical newspaper articles and the alarmists adjusting their data and their cherrypicking.

      • Did you actually read the article before commenting?

        “March 2012 was one of the warmest on record in Chicago. We were told at the time that was the new normal.”

        I have written dozens of articles about the warm winter and spring in the east. BS isn’t helpful.

      • John B., M.D. says:

        Local weather coverage focused on the record temps rather than “new normal.”
        I’m sure you could cite links that demonstrate your point that people told us it was the “new normal.”
        I hate the term “new normal.” It implies a permanent shift. That’s bullcrap.

    • Andy DC says:

      The significant news is that the NWS predicted above to much above normal temperatures for the Midwest this June. So far it has been well below normal. While there could be a few hot days here and there, the overall weather pattern still favors below normal temperatures.

    When a cherry of an article such as this one turns up; pump ripe and oozing with juicy misconceptions such as this one, it deserves to be picked.
    Cherrypick away Steve.
