Brad Johnson calls heavy rain in Oklahoma “fossil fuel powered”
He is referring to this:
Data showed that Oklahoma City has measured its all-time wettest month ever recorded, as rain continued to fall, according to CNN meteorologist Sean Morris.
By late Saturday, 3.15 inches had drenched the city, bringing the one-month total to 17.61 inches. “It … shatters the all-time monthly record of 14.66 inches set in June of 1989,” said Morris.
Seventeen inches in one month is a lot, but on Memorial Day weekend 1935 – Colorado and and Texas both received more than 22 inches of rain in less than four hours.
Woodward Ranch, Texas (about 17 miles northwest of D’Hanis, which is 40 miles west of San Antonio) measured an amazing 10.00″ in 1 hour, 15.00″ in 2 hours and a world record 22.00″ in 2 hours and 45 minutes on May 31, 1935 between 3:00-6:00 a.m. This was an especially interesting event since, just hours earlier, a rain gauge in eastern Colorado (at a location 25 miles northeast of Colorado Springs) measured 24″ of rain in a 6-hour period between noon-6:00 p.m. May 30th (22.80″ of which fell in just 4 hours).
That 1935 storm was far more intense than any this month, and CO2 was much lower in 1935.
Blaming thunderstorms on fossil fuels is the work of morons or climate alarmists – but I repeat myself.
