What If They Blamed Electricity?


Just counting in the US …

1889 – Pennsylvania – the deadliest flood in US history
1900 – Galveston – the deadliest Hurricane in US History
1910 – Idaho – the biggest forest fire in US history
1913 – Death Valley – The hottest temperature ever recorded in North America.
1913 – Ohio – the third worst flood in US history
1925 – Tri-State Tornado – the worst tornado in US history. Wind speeds up to 318 mph

1928 – Okeechobee – Category 5 hurricane killed 2,500 people
1930s – Dust Bowl – Hottest year and worst drought in US history
1935 – Florida – Strongest hurricane to ever hit the US
1937 – Mississippi Valley – the second worst flood in US history
1938 – New England Hurricane
1940s – Worst decade for hurricanes in the US

Essentially all of the most extreme weather in US history occurred with CO2 levels less than 330 pm. What if some charlatan had started a crusade to blame the extreme weather on electricity? Electricity use was increasing rapidly during that time, and correlation proves causation to many current “climate scientists.”

We are fortunate that our great-grandparents weren’t so clueless as the current generation of climochondriacs.

    Pardon my ignorance (and am no expert either) — was this post meant to be a CC argument rethink or a straight killjoy?

    Great article.

    I lot of people did think electricity was the work of the devil. Religious people in europe would not turn it on on Sunday

    Electricity doesn’t kill, electrons do. BAN ELECTRONS!
