Boss" Hogg, of the First Church of the Greenhouse Effect, err Global Warming, err Climate Change is commemorating the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy with a series of events in the eastern half of the state today through Tuesday.
Boss Hogg claims, We are seeing more of these disasters with greater severity and that climate change is “settled” science.
All praise Al Gore, who's been spouting the science is settled routine for six years.
As for Sandy, NOAA meteorologist Martin Hoerling attributes Sandy to "little more than the coincidental alignment of a tropical storm with an extratropical storm"
Boss Hogg then goes on to lecture, Even if you are an Iowan who for whatever reaason just doesn’t believe that climate change is real…that doesn’t take away your obligation to remember the victims, to support the survivors or to commit to prevent future disasters. They are happening.
Of course natural disasters are going to happen, now that's settled science and the scientific community is united in that fact.
As for our obligation, we've already committed to a $50 billion recovery package for states hit by Hurricane Sandy and the President has requested $2.7 billion for climate change for 2014.
In addition, the world invested almost a billion dollars a day in limiting global warming last year.
So, Back Off Boogaloo!
