Tornadoes are not unheard of in Massachusetts, or in the Capital Region. Federal weather records listed on Tornadohistoryproject.com, show that prior to the Springfield tornado, there had been more than 150 recorded tornadoes in the Bay State since 1953, which had killed a total of 90 people.
you can say that some events, like more intense storms from more moisture in the atmosphere, are what we would expect in a changing climate. We are seeing in the Northeast that 100-year storms are no longer 100-year storms. They seem to be 60-year storms.”
For example, the northeastern cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, and Burlington all had their wettest Aprils and Mays combined this year, the center reported this week. On the now-flooded Lake Champlain, Burlington had more than 16.5 inches of rain, shattering the old record by almost four inches. In contrast, the middle Atlantic states are getting much less rain than normal.
If you have 3000 cities, and an historical record which now only goes back to 1953, you would expect 60 cities have their wettest Aprils and Mays combined.
Climate change advocacy invariably has a an underlying element of stark raving stupidity. And this new game of ignoring everything prior to 1953 is simply fraudulent.
