Few aspects of contemporary debate are as dreary as the politicization of weather. ....Government officials have always known — or at least should have always known — they will be blamed for natural disasters, especially if they are not conducting rescue or cleanup activities with sufficient zeal.... But just as depressing and unenlightening is the practice of using instances of extreme weather — be they hot or cold, wet or dry — as “proof” the planet is warmingr.
But there is one trend we can rely upon to be true. Despite the complete absence of proof, for the foreseeable future, global warming alarmists will continue to spout theories about an increase in hurricanes and any other type of bad weather and assert they are the result of human activity that is cooking the planet. And much of the mainstream media will continue to report such wild theories as if they were verifiable facts.
