“This is going to be our new normal,” FEMA director Deanne Criswell, referring to terrible scenes of damage, told CNN hours after the natural disaster. “The effects we are seeing from climate change are the crisis of our generation.”
Such claims could be blamed on the sheer magnitude of the twister, which likely broke a record for the longest-ever tornado, but the American public is witnessing climate-change believers rush to the media and proclaim every headline-making natural disaster can be traced to mankind selfishly heating up earth’s atmosphere with fossil fuels.
Responding to the deadly tornadoes, climate change researcher Michael Mann told far-left news outlet Democracy Now! that the planet is being hit by wild fires, by droughts, by floods, and by heat waves.
By that logic, if a Midwest farmer watches his corn crop dry up from drought, or get flooded by torrential rains, climate change caused both.
“Climate change,” Mann said, “is already costing far more lives than COVID-19.”
According to The New York Post, the Dec. 10 storm is being called the “Quad-State Tornado” after hitting Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Kentucky. If it did rip through 230 miles in those four states, it would break the record for the longest twister in U.S. history.
That record was set by a 219-mile tornado in 1925, the Post said.
Gary Bauer, who leads the Campaign for Working Families, tells American Family News the public is not fooled anymore by the Left’s attempt to hijack science for their own socialist agenda.
“They are turning science,” he says, “into another politicized area that they can use as a club to beat their political opponents over the head with.”
Despite that constant drumbeat of climate change, Bauer says he noticed the liberal Washington Post braved the left-wing narrative with a story debunking it. According to the story, the link between tornadoes and climate change is, in the words of the Post, "just not there.”
Such skepticism is considered blasphemous “denialism” by Mann and others, who insist such beliefs are endangering human beings and should therefore should not be allowed in public.
“The denial of climate change,” he told Democracy Now!, “is deadlier than the basic science behind COVID-19.”
That apparently includes the liberal Washington Post.
