Track of Hurricane Ian

The headline says it all. Media climate alarmist put in his place.

CNN’s Don Lemon repeatedly tried to get the National Hurricane Center’s new acting director on Tuesday night to link Hurricane Ian to climate change, and he was not expecting the response that he received, says the Daily Wire. [Link includes interview transcript].

    My personal anecdotal truth trumps your data based science.

    Study? Or modelling game…

    SEPTEMBER 30, 2022
    Study finds that climate change added 10% to Ian’s rainfall

    MIT hurricane researcher Kerry Emanuel said in general, a warmer world does make storms rainier. But he said he is uncomfortable drawing conclusions about individual storms.

  4. Gamecock says:

    ‘Wehner and Kevin Reed, an atmospheric scientist at Stony Brook University, published a study in Nature Communications earlier this year looking at the hurricanes of 2020 and found during their rainiest three-hour periods they were more than 10% wetter than in a world without greenhouse gases trapping heat. Wehner and Reed applied the same scientifically accepted attribution technique to Hurricane Ian.’

    Scientifically accepted by no one. Front page junk science.

    ‘A long-time rule of physics is that for every extra degree of warmth Celsius (1.8 degrees Fahrenheit), the air in the atmosphere can hold 7% more water.’

    Until it gets in a hurricane, then it can no longer hold it. It can hold more while holding less. A logical back flip.

    ‘This week the Gulf of Mexico was 0.8 degrees warmer than normal, which should have meant about 5% more rain.’

    The Gulf is water, not atmosphere. By the way, the Gulf is always hot in late summer, and ‘0.8 degrees warmer’ is false precision fallacy, anyway.

    ‘Reality turned out to be even worse. The flash study found the hurricane dropped double that—10% more rain.’

    Pants on fire.

  5. Russell Cook (@QuestionAGW) says:

    CNN is incompetent on more than one level. Their on-screen spelling of NOAA National Hurricane Center Acting Director Jamie Rhome last name is misspelled as “Rohme,” which now cascades down through most every retelling of Don Lemon’s anti-science blunder. That still may be a good thing for Rhome, it may reduce the amount of hate email he might get if the average dumb AGWer can’t find his email address.

  6. Linnea says:

    I just saw on Tracking The Tropics that Ian was not a result of climate change, but possibly 10% of the rainfall was a result of a warmer climate. This is not peer reviewed.

    They also argued climate change is actually causing less major hurricanes lol I guess they have to get with the times. AGW isn’t causing more storms, now it’s causing less but wetter ones.

  7. P.A.Semi says:

    I’d rather like to link Hurricane Ian to Nord Stream assaults…

    On your “Hurricane track” image, the blue dots were track of a regular storm, but the Hurricane with round spinning core formed exactly around 2022-09-26 00:00 UTC, some two hours after first Nord Stream blast and before the second, all of these on J*wish New Year on 2022-09-26 (which starts on sunset of 09-25…)

    It was either the God’s revenge for the malfeasance, or American deed to divert attention to something else, or the crime of those, who also perpetrated the NS assaults, or all of these…

    And then an obvious manipulation of the Hurricane by c*h*e*m trails occurred later before hitting on Florida…


  8. Spirit of the wind says:

    The rebellion against phoney science has to come from within science itself.
    Problem is the phoneys aren’t scientists, they’re phoneys with a direct pipeline to the MSM who are also oddly enough, also phoneys.

  9. P.A.Semi says:

    Since Wikipedia page about Hurricane Ian does not mention that date 2022-09-26, I’ve made a short video from Goes AirMass to support my claim, that it started from a previous tropical storm on 2022-09-26 at midnight UTC:
    (the storm starts from 2022-09-18 from lower right corner in this video)
