Righteous Anger

Last winter, the East Coast righteous were angry that climate skeptics had ruined the heavy snows which they remembered from their childhood.

This year they are angry that climate skeptics are to blame for heavy snow, which they no longer remember from their childhood.

Apparently climate skeptics cause 97% memory loss amongst the faithful.

    Hahaha!
    What happened to all the reports that man made global warming will cause an earlier spring?

    Meteorologists are a little pissy too…

    “A named storm should be a hurricane, and only a hurricane” George Wright, a meteorologist and the founder of Wright Weather Consulting in New York, said in an interview with The Times. “A hurricane is something that’s more unusual and devastating. If you start naming other storms, people will suddenly think this might be a hurricane.”

    Joel Meyer, founder and president of AccuWeather, a Weather Channel competitor, issued a statement this fall blasting the Weather Channel for its decision.

    “In unilaterally deciding to name winter storms, the Weather Channel has confused media spin with science and public safety,” he said. “We have explored this issue for 20 years and have found that this is not good science and will mislead the public. Winter storms are very different from hurricanes.”

    • The problem is that the alarmists think the name IS the thing. If they change the name, the thing is changed. So if they call a gentle spring shower a hurricane, it becomes a hurricane. It doesn’t bother them one bit that this practice is psychotic because they call it “the new normal” and, ***Poof***, it becomes The New Normal!

      How do you fight such a thing? One way is put the practitioners in white coats with long sleeves tied behind their backs, feed them though nasal tubes, and isolate them from the rest of humanity for life. Personally, I think that is much too benevolent. Perhaps I am a bit vindictive over the massive wealth they have stolen, the pernicious rules and regulations they have caused to be placed upon us, and the steady stream of lies and distortions they have used to justify it all.

      I would respect them more, if to meet their goal of reducing the world’s population, they would voluntarily go first.

        They should be sent to Antarctica to live off the land, with no provisions that were produced by using Fossil Fuels. Dry Valley should be just the place for them!

      They do this to “personalize” the events. By doing so, they make them more “personal” to their audience. This has the effect of added sensationalism. This is merely a psychological tool, and in my view, quite disingenuous (they want you to be scared).

        Exactly. Would the show ‘Friends’ had been as popular (and lucrative ) if none of the characters had names?

      • Andy OZ says:

        In Australia, we have recently taken to naming Willy Willy’s.
        This is Willy Willy “Awesome”: Be tewified. Be vewy vewy tewified.
        Windspeeds in the core of about 15 mph. According to climate experts, this WillyWilly was caused by excess CO2 production down under.

    • Good for those critics. I go a step further. I reject the name “tsunami” now miraculously mandated by “authorities” for a tidal wave, no matter where in the world it occurs; “tsunami” used only to refer to tidal waves in the Pacific, and its supposed meaning (“harbor wave”) is less descriptive of the phenomenon than “tidal wave”. The name “tsunami”, as perhaps no one but me knows any longer, came originally from the Japanese creator myth goddess, Itzanami, and so does not ultimately even mean “harbor wave”, but “the destroyer” (which is what she became in myth, as queen of the underworld). Of course, I also refuse to go along with the new naming of “winter storms” (whatever that means).

      • …as well as “derecho” for a plain, straight-line wind (and no, I don’t need to know that it must last for 240 miles, or whatever, to be called that)

      • gator69 says:

        Hey Harry! My favorite geology professor from over 3 decades ago was adamant about not using ‘tidal wave’ to describe these massive displacements or water. A tsunami is a very specific event, and should not be confused with forces like tides or waves, which are created by the Moon and wind.

        I am a firm believer in using language in the most effective manner possible, and we have an amazing language that borrows from many cultures, thus making it exceedingly descriptive. I recently was able to convince my state climatologist to stop using the word ‘normal’ when describing weather events and climate, and replace it with ‘average’, which is the correct description.

        He who controls the language controls thought.
