Alternately referring to Hurricane Sandy as either a superstorm or a megastorm our friends at the Liberal Press Office have helped put Sandy in perspective by letting us know that this years meteorological winner of American Idol was spawned by global warming, intensified by rising ocean temperatures and sponsored by Big Oil.
Citing no actual scientific evidence- why use science when you believe SO strongly?- its apparent that the headlines used by the mainstream media to cover the post-Sandy ascendancy virtually wrote themselves well prior to Sandys gestation.

Is Hurricane Sandy the face of climate change? Yes, is the surprising (ha!) answer from UC Berkleys Jayni Foley Hein, Executive Director, Center for Law, Energy & the Environment.

Sandy Raises Questions About Climate And The Future, NPR
Hurricane Sandy: The Last Straw on Climate Change, says The Daily Beasts Bill McKibben, with a subhead: The deniers have been beaten by Sandy and other overwhelming evidence. The question now: what do we do?
Quick: Lets pass a human emissions tax. We can start with McKibben, because when there is stench, theres greenhouse trapping gas.
Settled Science! Hurry, supplies are limited, call now, operators are standing by, As Seen on TV! Superstorm Sandy Backs Barack, Cites War on Women!
Now to be fair to the Big Bird station, NPR only quoted one source in the story on Sandy and global warming. Mayor Bloombergs climate science lead for the science policy team of the New York City Panel on Climate Change, Radley Horton in an interview offered his own proof- sometimes known as an opinion outside of global warming circles- that global warming had an effect on Hurricane Sandy.
Yes, that is the journalistic equivalent of citing Bill Clinton on Bill Clinton, but the Iowa Electoral College votes REALLY important.
It's difficult to know whether this year's rise in ocean temperatures was associated with climate change, says NPR, but Horton says that Hurricane Sandy moved over unusually warm waters in the North Atlantic.
See, the scientists cant actually PROVE their science, but thats only because they are really great at speculating about it. Doesnt implying their views very gravely to taxpayer supported journalists actually count as settled science?
"As the planet continues to warm, we expect ocean temperatures to go up," says Horton. "All things being equal, that does give a storm like Sandy more energy."
Well, at least he got the science right, right?
Naw. Science, facts, truth, justice? Those concepts are as old-fashioned as the American Way.
What matters is keeping the federal bureaucracy going and giving Obama a fighting chance in places like, Iowa, which suddenly has become a Super-Mega Battleground State.
NOAA climate scientist Martin Hoerling said that the sea surface temperatures were actually insignificant in the case of Sandy, directly contradicting the settled science offered by Horton.
From the Environmental Editor at the Australian:
Dr Hoerling told US public radio in the aftermath of Sandy that ocean temperatures adjacent to the US eastern seaboard had been running several degrees higher than normal.
But he said the unusually warm waters were in areas where the background temperature was relatively cool. "So adding a few degrees Fahrenheit at that cool water temperature doesn't matter too much for the intensity of a hurricane," Dr Hoerling said.
The guys at the NOAA, although government employees, are the leading proponents for restoring science to the science of global warming.
This isnt the first time that Hoerling has debunked media claims that current weather events are due to global warming. There is very little evidence that links hurricanes, drought, tornadoes and other extreme events to global warming. There us actually quite a bit of evidence that extreme weather events have not been driven by global warming.
Remember the droughts in Texas and Russia, which the climate scientists and assorted a.k.a.s from the media declared was more proof that global warming was real?
Heres Hoerling in the New York Times: Published scientific studies on the Russian heat wave indicate this claim to be false. Our own study on the Texas heat wave and drought, submitted this week to the Journal of Climate, likewise shows that that event was not caused by human-induced climate change. These are not de novo events, but upon scientific scrutiny, one finds both the Russian and Texas extreme events to be part of the physics of what has driven variability in those regions over the past century. This is not to say that climate change didnt contribute to those cases, but their intensity owes to natural, not human, causes.
And he concludes by quoting Dr. Harold Brooks in the New Scientist, who warns in an article concluding that there is no evidence to link tornadoes and global warming, against using local weather events as proof of global warming:
Those who continue to talk in certain terms of how local weather extremes, writes Brooks, are the result of human climate change are failing to heed all the available evidence.
Heedless? Climate scientists?
Iowas in play.
I think Christie helped alont
What? It wasn’t George Bush’s fault?
Now there’s a nor’easter on the way. There was an earthquake in NJ yesterday. It seems that California has chronic issues with major fires and earthquakes. Flame on, but I’m having trouble drumming up a lot of sympathy for these people in heavy blue areas on the map. You vote to put a wretched Muslim Commie in charge, there might be consequences.
Yup, the weather, it’s a political issue to people with peabrains.
Bad economy, dangerous world, and some people want to talk about the weather.
too much time talking about Libya when we already won that issue handily. It’s the economy, that should have filled most air time.
Blaming everyone in an entire “blue area” for putting 0bama in the office is stupid - Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, Indiana all voted for 0bama and they are a lot of conservatives that are suffering through the aftermath of the storm - I know I was doing clean up on the south Shore of Long Island this past weekend, it is a disaster down there.
The fact that the storm was burdened with a woman’s name is evidence of the ongoing war on women by the scientific and meteorological community............right?!?!?
I invited flaming, so... thank you. “Stupid” is a little much, though.
ok, how does “not smart” work ?
MINORITIES, WOMEN MOST AFFECTED BY SANDY
Right, everyone knows that THEY are most likely to live on the beach, river, inlet, lake, creek...< /sarc >
I don't see any part of what I believe is necessary to avoid God's judgment taking place, and I fully expect nothing less than an unprecedented stream of ever more severe natural disasters in many other areas of the nation. I'm afraid that because the people seem oblivious to what God is doing to warn us that He has had enough and is now in the process of making us an example to the rest of the world of what he requires of those nations and people who He chooses to bless and raise to world dominance, and what He demands of those nations in order for them to remain in that position.
That is my belief in regard to the natural disasters that have recently occurred in the nation, but I sincerely hope I'm wrong and that we as a people will voluntarily return to the Godly moral standards and devotion to the Christian God of our fathers that once prevailed in this nation. If the readers of this post agree with my assessment of our problems please join me in sincere, believing prayer for our nation and our children's future.
