Live at Noon Central Time: Hurricane Ian Isn’t Proof of Anthropogenic Climate Change

The Heartland Institute

As expected, the corporate media latched onto Hurricane Ian to advance the false narrative of anthropogenic, catastrophic climate change. Rather than dedicate airtime to informing the public on key developments, alarmists are capitalizing on this devastating weather event to scare the public into submission.

On today’s episode of Climate Change Roundtable, the panel covers reporting from the New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC and then contrasts it with objective data to highlight the rampant misinformation behind climate alarmism.

A single and first landfall of the year and warmist/alarmists go crazy with lies and stupidities.

The truth is scary to many these days.

The fewer hurricanes per season, the more BS they have to pile on to each one to ‘prove’ climate change is making them worse.

I saw the guy on CNN last night saying or least implying that global warming was 100% to blame for Ian. The evidence does not support that hypothesis.

Good catch Bdgwx.

But did anyone from that pathic excuse for a news organization or any of the other pathetic excuses for news organizations call him out on his bullshit?

What about the pathetic excuses for scientists such as Michael Mann et al?

Mann is shoveling his bullshit again at The Guardian.

Now he’s even citing his own articles as “proof” that hurricanes are a man-made event.

I do notice though that now The Guardian publishes Mann under the “Opinion” section.

So there’s that . . .

I’ve kind of lost track… Is there anything left in the world that hasn’t been blamed on climate change and/or carbon dioxide?

I am very sorry. The hurricane in the eastern US will stay for a long time and cause catastrophic flooding.

And you’re point is?

Ian has been downgraded to a tropical storm, so you’re wrong, hurricane Ian did not stay for a long time.

September 30, 2022 11:54 am Max wind speed 17 m/s. Hardly a tropical storm. NHC says 38…

That’s the Oyster Landing, SC station. Ian did pass directly over that station with maximum sustained winds recorded at 33 knots at 1.15 pm. That’s the western eyewall. The trailing side passed a few hour later with much lower winds.
The offshore NDBC station, 41004 recorded maximum sustained winds of 45 knots.
Another shore station called Folly Island (FBIS1) recorded 30 knots maximum.
From the real time videos Ian was nowhere near hurricane force at landfall, while the NHC was claiming Category 1.

Truth in Science, that is an outdated concept in this century.
You would think some concerned organization would publish something about the very interesting anomaly in the Lower Stratosphere last month, that is colder than anything observed in the Lower Stratosphere for the Southern Mid Latitudes.

  1. agw is a theory
  2. theories arent proved, theorems are proved
  3. theories are confirmed or disconfirmed
  4. severe hurricanes are evidence FOR agw, not evidence against it.

No severe hurricanes before CO2 was lower? Hmmm?

1) AGW barely makes it to the level of hypothesis. Wild guess is more accurate
2) so what
3) so what
4) You’re delusional, that could only be true if there were no severe hurricanes prior to the increase in CO2. Beyond that, total cyclonic energy measured worldwide has been falling in recent decades. Which directly contradicts the AGW scam.

Our local newspaper claimed; “it was one of the worst hurricanes evah”. I’m not sure what the statement means because there have been many hurricanes in the past that were much worse.

I would say that in terms of flooding Ian is exceptional but not in terms of wind damage.
What is interesting to me now is the differences in disaster response between Ian and Katrina.

Don Lemon’s anecdotal chauvinism

It would be great that if after it is all said and done down in Florida if someone did the research to provide a detailed postmortem comparing the preparations and disaster response between Ian and Katrina.

What were the comparative evacuation responses? How effective were the evacuation efforts? What was the comparative number of shelters and their services and security offered per capita. Have any Mayors of the larger cities impacted in Florida ran away out of state? How many NG were mobilized in comparison and when? How about police to prevent looting and maintain order? How many utility repair assets were pre-staged for each? How many emergency supplies were pre-staged per capita for each? Is any law enforcement going around confiscating firearms from citizens in Florida like they did in “the Chocolate City”? Comparative speed at which vital services were restored and vital infrastructure repaired? Has any areas of Florida descended into total lawless anarchy as occurred in the “Chocolate City”? Ghost employment revealed.

Don’t confuse me with facts when I am arguing with you…..

At least somebody is asking the right question-
Smerconish: Should we rebuild in disaster-prone areas? | Watch (

You toughen up the cyclonic building code and let private insurers set risk premiums for those that want to rebuild in harms way. What many find is insurance premiums will be cost prohibitive whereas nationally funded socialist schemes simply encourage moral hazard.

Don’t have time for that video and a little slow getting to anything at the start. Sorry. But yeah, 500-year storm and the worst to ever hit the United States are some of the whoppers just from FOX.

Ive made it through several tropical storms and one full blown typhoon in Japan. Ian is over top of us right now in Maryland( what’s left of it) Agnes in 1972 was way worse. Just my subjective non scientific assessment. But spent alot of my life in construction restoration restoring historic masonry structure on the (USA)east cost. This is nothing unusual. More BS stats in a heavily built out region with MSM cluck bait hype.
