As Harvey and Irma battered Texas and Florida respectively, climate change hoax promoters have been screaming that this is proof. Yes, the first major hurricanes in nearly a decade prove we are causing the climate to change. Even if you believe in human caused climate change, you have to find these claims beyond absurd and completely divorced from science.
It may come as a surprise to Jennifer Lawrence and Pope Francis, but hurricanes have been happening for thousands, if not millions, of years. Long before the Industrial Revolution greatly increased carbon dioxide and pollution output. Long before humans discovered fire. Long before humans exhaled carbon dioxide. In fact, the word hurricane gives a clue to at least far back they occurred. It comes from the Spanish huracan, which comes from the Taino Juracan. The Taino were a people in the Caribbean who probably experienced quite a few of these terrifying storms, so much so, that they named a god after them. The concept was even known by Shakespeare who wrote in King Lear Act 3, Scene 2:
Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
And in Troilus and Crusida Act 5, Scene 2:
Which shipmen do the hurricano call,
Shakespeare was dead and buried before climate change is even said to have been caused by humans. To exploit the misery of millions today to push your agenda is downright despicable. But those on the left never care about words. These are dangerous lies. People could be hurt and billions could be flushed down the toilet in a vain effort to stop what isnt happening. It is time they be held to account. When the White House Homeland Security adviser was asked if the hurricanes were caused by climate change, he didnt really know what to say. Simple knowledge of history would have blown the narrative right open.
