Fox News of course jumped all over the thousand year flood BS, like they do with everything they hear from climate alarmists.
USGS says there was no thousand year flood and no correlation between flooding and CO2.
USGS provisional data and preliminary analysis show NO indication that a 1000-year flood discharge occurred at any USGS streamgages
USGS research has shown no linkage between flooding (either increases or decreases) and the increase in greenhouse gases. Essentially, from USGS long-term streamgage data for sites across the country with no regulation or other changes to the watershed that could influence the streamflow, the data shows no systematic increases in flooding through time.
The good news is that Janice Dean has promised to not make that same mistake again.
