Unprecedented Rate of Rise Of Illiteracy!

The tsunami that sparked a meltdown in Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant demonstrated the threat posed by natural disasters to the world’s developed economies.

Once considered rare events, catastrophic floods, tornadoes and forest fires are a symptom of climate volatility

That evidence is sometimes shocking, such as the tsunami that hit the east coast of Britain 8,000 years ago when it was still joined to continental Europe by a land corridor. “We call it the Storegga Slide,” says Harrison. “Melting glaciers caused a submarine landslide of sedimentary deposits off the Norwegian coast, sending an 11m wave crashing into Britain, Iceland, Greenland and North America.”

………………

Harrison warns that governments have been slow to respond. “The rise of global temperatures is unprecedented: the rate of increase over the past century would normally have taken place over tens of thousands of years.”

    WTF????
    How ignorant do they come?
    O Wait! I have been reading about the latest from the Mannomatic Machine and they think everyone else is ignorant enough to believe their fairy tales.

    That’s odd, because the rate of increase is exactly the same as the rate of increase from 1700-1800………….

    A rate of increase? Perhaps he meant total increase.

    One needs only watch warmists debate the issues to realize they either can’t read or refuse to.

  5. Andy WeissDC says:

    There were 2 major flood catastrophes in 1927 (Mississippi and Vermont) and 3 major tornado catastrophes with 90+ fatalities in 1953 (Waco, Flint and Worcester). So it doesn’t appear that these are necessarily”rare events”. Making these sweeping generalizations without evidence is an insult to one’s intelligence.
