Media Lying About Climate And Hurricanes–Michael Shellenberger

October 6, 2022

By Paul Homewood



Over the last several weeks, many mainstream news media outlets have claimed that hurricanes are becoming more expensive, more frequent, and more intense because of climate change.

All of those claims are false.

Full article here.

    Any attribution should include mechanism. Otherwise, it’s just word salad.

    Just remember, we have the UN chick who wants all opposing opinions censored. And she calls that science.

    There are more than a few real climate scientists who disagree and provide explanations, but we cannot allow them to speak…..

    What really needs to be done is eliminate “Climate Change” from all Government Departmental names and all job titles. This will mean all the jobsworths will have to deal with all facts and not just those relating to CC.

    Shellenberger’s article was a piece of work: it was clear that the doom-merchants didn’t like being taken to task.
    As it happens, my daughter’s FiL has a house in Coral Island near Fort Myers. If you look on Google Earth you will see an incredibly closely developed area of expensive houses where once, decades ago, there would have been none. Thus supports Pielkie’s point that hurricane costs can’t be misused in order to say this hurricane was so much bigger/stronger/wilder than previous ones. If it had struck 100 years ago the $ damage would have been a damn sight less.

      Hurricanes making landfall below Matamoros cause substantially less damage than ones above.

    what is frustrating and unfortunate is that the general public never hear of the realities and accept what the media tell them, so the belief in general is that things are getting worse, and we need to do more.
    Another unfortunate trend is the media keep pushing renewables as a way to do more to combat climate change and never highlighting the very real deficiencies and the near impossibility to transition from fossil fuels to renewables.
    It is the binary fossil fuels bad, renewables good message when the reality is pretty much the opposite.
