ACCORDING TO BRADY: Is this what a changing climate looks like?

Texas and Florida should be leading the charge.

Climate change, also known as global warming, has been causing alarming events the world over, such as rising sea levels and destructive typhoons and hurricanes.

And while the nation is transfixed by the hurricanes, more than 100 wildfires burn across the Northwest, consuming 2 millions acres of forests and grasslands, and threatening to make 2017 the worst ever wildfire season. "And in the case of a really bad storm, climate change can make it totally disastrous or catastrophic".

The sheer scale of Harvey and Irma's impact is only beginning to come into focus. Warmer air also can carry more moisture.

There are established linkages between a storm's severity and factors such as sea levels, ocean temperatures and the position of prevailing currents such as the jet stream.

NOAA and Unisys have published records of storm activity in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans since records have been kept on this phenomenon.

In 2015, Hurricane Patricia in the Pacific Ocean intensified more rapidly - "It just went 'Boom!'" - than any storm on record.


The global warming activists must know that because when Donald Trump joked about a lack of warming on a snowy day, they lectured us about how "weather is not climate - one snowstorm is irrelevant to long-term climate".

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt told CNN in an interview about Hurricane Irma on Thursday that the time to talk about climate change isn't now - saying the question was "insensitive".

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, climate activists have upped their attacks on those who do not accept man-made climate change.

Here's the thing. I don't think that environmental regulation was the "broken system" that Trump voters wanted so badly to elect an iconoclast nonpolitician president to fix.

Barring a "Capricorn One" scenario in which all the major hurricanes over the past 12 years occurred on a movie soundstage, Stossel's claims are based upon laziness, ignorance, arrogance or a conscious effort to advance a political agenda opposed to the necessary actions for combatting climate Change.

And yet, with all the advancement in the field of science, scientists cannot state for sure if the increasing number of tornados can be attributed to climate change, International Research Institution For Climate And Society reported.

"I'm anxious about another hurricane", he shared with reporters while touring the Florida Keys this week.


Focusing on climate change and helping people affected by it are not mutually exclusive. "This brings it home".

Avoiding the outright conclusion that Harvey's extreme devastation is a result of climate change seems possible. People point to images of devastating hurricanes from the early 1900s as examples of how extreme weather has always been part of coastal living. "When you don't want to see, you don't see", he said.

See the Arkema Chemical plant fire in Crosby, Texas, during Harvey or the West Fertilizer plant explosion that killed 15 people and destroyed two-thirds of West, Texas, in 2013.

"You can say you don't believe in gravity, but if you step off a cliff, you're going down", she said.

The above relief is in addition to the Form 5500 Annual Return/Report filing relief already provided by the IRS in accordance with the Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma news releases listed on the IRS disaster relief website.

Scientists say it is empirical nonsense. However, in many cases it was not necessarily major storms that caught our attention, for in 2012 it was Sandy that struck New Jersey and NY causing such damage and alerting people to the likelihood of landfall of a major hurricane striking a large coastal city, such as Miami. It's time to act because the storms' fury swept away the foolish notion that climate change is someone else's problem.

In general, though, climate scientists agree that future storms will dump much more rain than the same size storms did in the past.


The impact of global warming on the intensity and scope of hurricanes is an ever-evolving field of study, and the evidence thus far paints a risky picture.
