    Looks like the meme that the storms are not as bad as in prior years is just plain wrong.

    Oddball, you are a fucking idiot. A willfully ignorant ass that knows nothing of science. Here are the people that keep track of extreme weather because their jobs depend on it.

    Climate change IS real.

    It has been real for millions of years.

    That's why this blog isn't run by insects (whooppsie?) or dinosaurs (instead of children?).

    Dinosaur farts caused the last great climate shift but wouldn't have had there been algorasaur to outlaw them.

    When climate change is inevitable relax and enjoy it.

    You can't even wrap your head about a concept like "falsifiable", then try to deflect from the fact with an all-too-predictable appeal to authority, and I'm the idiot?!?

    Man, you warmers are a hooot! :laugh2:

    Silly ignorant ass, the re-insurers are the people that see the numbers for natural disasters up close and personal. And, yes, they are the authorities on the cost of those disasters. Who are we supposed to go to for information? People like you that have zero real knowledge of these events?

    So now insurers are sources of science?

    Do you even know how insurance works?

    Insurance companies are not ignoring climate change. Unlike ideological and anti-science deniers like yourself, insurance companies are all too aware that manmade global warming is upon us and that old flood plane maps and storm assessments are increasingly useless.

    With all due respect people like yourself should get the hell out of the way and let the sane adults address the issue. Your side is wrong and now relegated to the trash heap of history.

    The OP is the perfect puppet for his globalist masters.
    They say it....he BELIEVES it.

    The US is among the cleanest nations on earth in terms of so called greenhouse gas output anyway.

    Tell ya what "brave little climate warrior"....
    Go to China, the REAL source of your GHG and stand in Tiananmen square shouting your concerns.

    Till then.....STFU moron
