Someone Tell Barry… Number of Tornadoes at Ten Year Low

Remember this?
Barack Obama blamed global warming climate change for “raging fires, crippling drought and more powerful storms” during his Inaugural speech this month.

Peace award winner Al Gore supported his comments.

Now we find out that not only did global warming end sixteen years ago but the number of tornadoes are at a ten year low.
Tom Nelson reported, via Kate:

Today’s fatality ends the longest continuous stretch without a tornado death ever recorded in the U.S.–220 days. The last time the U.S. saw a tornado death was at Venus in Highlands County, Florida, from an EF-0 tornado associated with Tropical Storm Debby on June 24, 2012. The previous record was 197 straight days without a tornado death, which ended on February 28, 1987. Part of the reason for the long stretch without a tornado death during 2012 – 2013 was the relative lack of tornadoes. According to NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC), the total number of tornadoes during 2012 was just 936. This is the first time since 2002 that fewer than 1000 tornadoes have been recorded.

But, these facts won’t stop Obama from blowing several billions more on his junk science projects.

    Traitor in Chief is an ignorant man. He won’t listen to your facts anyway.

    blaming anything and everything more show of a incompetence.

    Ok, but how does anyone know whether increased or decreased tornadoes might be a consequence of global warming. In other words, you are committing the same rhetorical fallacy that the left does when they claim that warming causes hurricane Sandy, etc.

    A little intellectual honesty on both sides would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank heaven there are a few honest scientists who are getting back to using the scientific approach to conduct their research. I was getting so tired of research results that other scientists cannot reproduce, “lost and/or nonexistent data,” selective peer review, and limiting inclusion of scientists who aren’t in the groupthink mode at technical meetings. We need honest scientist who won’t parrot “the science is settled” that the Government and environmentalisis whose main interest is power, control, and and highly lucrative cap and trade investments. Science and politics are dangerous when dishonest.

    We the People are trying to tell Obama a lot of things. When Pigs fly! Half this nation believes in the opposite of Obama.


    Has he listened? No!

    Won’t matter. Someone will come up with an explanation why that’s somehow a result of glo-bull warming.

  • blah

    I’m probably the only person who remembers this. But, during a campaign speech back in 2007 Obama claimed 10,000 people were killed during a Kansas storm.,2933,270852,00.html

    Obama made the claim of more tornadoes. The fact that he was wrong is all that’s being pointed out and he was probably just saying whatever happened to dribble through his brain at that moment (his brain being made up in large part by a teleprompter).

    The truth doesn’t matter to Obama. The weather is a great tool of oppression. He is trying to wield another weapon of “change” against the American people. He is doing what he’s supposed to: Repeat the lie.

    C02 was at 7,000 ppm at some point in earth’s ancient past. The climate was temperate to very warm. We would have loved it. Now we live in a CO2 deficient period in earth’s life and we are loving it. Man’s contribution is a trace amount of a trace element that poses no threat.

    We’ve been warned by many from the former Soviet Union about tyranny’s rise. Another, some might want to check out is Vaclav Klaus. He’s the president of the Czech Republic and he’s been through every political change in Russia throughout his life.

    He said beware of people who claim to be able to control the weather. He wrote a book, an easy read called Blue Planet In Green Shackles.

    1,100 Green Berets set record straight on guns

    [“In contrast, in 2009 (5 years after the Federal Assault Weapons Ban
    expired) total firearm related homicides in the U.S. declined by 9 percent
    from the 2005 high,” the letter says, citing FBI statistics.

    Since gun bans don’t really impact violence, what is the issue at hand?

    “The purpose of the Second Amendment is to secure our ability to oppose
    enemies foreign and domestic, a guarantee against disorder and tyranny,”
    the Green Berets say.

    “Throughout history, disarming the populace has always preceded tyrants’
    accession of power. Hitler, Stalin, and Mao all disarmed their citizens prior
    to installing their murderous regimes. At the beginning of our own nation’s
    revolution, one of the first moves made by the British government was an
    attempt to disarm our citizens. When our Founding Fathers ensured that
    the Second Amendment was made a part of our Constitution, they were
    not just wasting ink. They were acting to ensure our present security was
    never forcibly endangered by tyrants, foreign or domestic.”

    But school shootings are horrible and need to be addressed, they write.

    “First, it is important that we recognize that this is not a gun control
    problem; it is a complex sociological problem. No single course of
    action will solve the problem.”

    The military veterans say local schools
    should make their own decisions and plans.

    “Most recently the Cleburne Independent School District will become the
    first district in North Texas to consider allowing some teachers to carry
    concealed guns. We do not opine as to the appropriateness of this decision,
    but we do support their right to make this decision for themselves.”

    Further, those individuals with diagnosed conditions that impact their
    ability to make decisions can be addressed with programs of treatment.

    “In each of these mass shooting incidents the perpetrator
    was mentally unstable,” the Green Berets says

    Firearms safety programs in schools could help, and a repeal of laws
    making them gun-free zones should be considered by local officials.

    Also, the violence in video games needs to be addressed.

    “”War and war-like behavior should not be glorified. Hollywood and video
    game producers are exploiting something they know nothing about. General
    Sherman famously said, ‘War is hell!’ Leave war to the professionals,’” the
    letter says

    “This is our country, these are our rights. We believe that it is time that we
    take personal responsibility for our choices and actions rather than abdicate
    that responsibility to someone else under the illusion that we have done
    something that will make us all safer.

    We have a responsibility to stand by our principles and act in accordance
    with them. Our children are watching and they will follow the example we
    set,” they write.

    Seems stranger today North Korea under Marshall Law for missile deployment is going to be this week

    That’s the great thing about the non-falsifiable “theory” of “climate change”. Everything can be considered “change”: More tornadoes this year? That’s change. Less tornadoes? That’s change. Warming? That’s change. Not warming? That’s change.

    All these changes…let’s shut down the Keystone pipeline.

    Tornadoes at all time low
    deficits at all time high

    Barry is easily confused

  • Lim Lynn
    Hey everyone let’s not educated Traitor in Chief about Numbers of Tornado related climate change let’s tell him Citizen’s Grand Jury California Florida Division. True eh Russia helping Traitor in Chief to disable Texas military radar and going to confiscate semi auto rifles and hand guns. Red Dawn people Red Dawn. Sandy Hook murder suspect Joe Ametrano.

  • the president would like to amend his statement to say the global warming can also cause a reduction in raging storms.
