Three people were killed by a lightning strike on Thursday just across the street from the White House and Reuters used the sad occasion to hype... climate change. I kid you not as their own headline on Friday reveals: "Washington DC lightning strike that killed three offers climate warning."
Reuter's reporter Gloria Dickie then goes into the details of how this tragedy is indicative of climate change starting with the very first sentence of her story:

Because there would be no lightning without anthropogenic global warming.
No kidding ...
Good gawd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lightening is now a sign of climate change????????? Jumping the shark a bit, aren’t we?????? Well, I’M not that stupid!!!!!!!
I think the original story was from Reuters, their climate alarmist wrote the first article, and, of course, the gaslight media is only too happy to pick it up and run with it.
Of course, there’s also this: (showing, um, the “impact” of climate change on lightning deaths).
And since the Joe Manchin American Bankruptcy Act (2022) won’t actually “fix” their manufactured climate change “science”, rest assured our corrupt ruling elite will only be ever more emboldened to push the most extreme economic agenda in American history month after month after month.
“The number of lightning caused claims fell 6.9 percent to 71,551 claims in 2020 from 76,860 in 2019”
“Facts + Statistics: Lightning | III
In 2020 there were 17 direct lightning fatalities, compared with 20 in 2019, according to the National Weather Service. From 2010 to 2019 on average, 26 people died each year from lightning strikes in the United States.”
Wrong again, green breath.
Yeah, Pee-Jay likes to rip off material.
It's one of his favorite things to do besides neglecting personal hygiene.
No it was William Wallace in heaven sending lightning bolt out of his arse
It was a warning to Jao.
“Climate change. All the way down.”
Says the deodorant-free Incel who drips beer down his torn T-shirt while chain smoking his way thru pack after pack.
There could be some difference between “direct lightning deaths” and “lightning deaths”, i.e. “indirect lightning deaths”.
Retarded. Lightning being proof of global warming.
Oh give it a rest, bimbo.
Right....lightening has NEVER struck before!
Toenail fungus proves Global Warming.
From 2006 - 2021, 444 people died from lightening strikes in
the United States. That works out to just shy of 30 people
per year. (29.6)
Here is a page that given information. About half way down
you can click on stats and get a little more information
A governor of Virginia’s teenage daughter was killed by lightning at Virginia Beach in the 60’s. Under a clear sky I believe, don’t recall the governor’s name or party not that it matters but this global warming crap attentioning crap does.
