New York : State Of Superstition

New York’s Governor says New York didn’t used to get hurricanes or tornadoes.

“Anyone who questions extreme weather and climate change is just delusional at this point,” Mr. Cuomo told MSNBC in an interview. “We have seen in the state of New York what everyone has seen—we see these weather patterns that we never had before. We didn’t have hurricanes. We didn’t have super storms. We didn’t have tornadoes.”

The level of ignorance on display by the governor is spectacular, even for a New York Democrat.

Experts Unearth a Stormy Past By Andrew C. Revkin

July 24, 2001

Studies reported by federal meteorologists last week showed a relationship between the frequency and targets of severe Atlantic hurricanes and the shifts that occur every few decades in the temperature of the ocean’s waters.

They concluded that the Atlantic had recently settled into its warmer state. As a result, they say, strong hurricanes will be more than twice as likely to form in the next 20 or 30 years as they were between 1970 and 1994.

n March, the atmospheric agency and the National Science Foundation sponsored a three-day workshop at the University of South Carolina to explore the idea of creating the first systematic effort to seek evidence of Atlantic Coast hurricane strikes that have not been well documented, from 1851 back 1,000 years or more.

For places like New York City, which has been struck head-on by a Category 3 or higher hurricane only once in recorded history, in September 1821, finding evidence of others is important for planners, Dr. Donnelly and other experts said.

The world passed a climate treaty that day in 2001, which had zero impact on emissions or climate.

The Kyoto accord calls for the 38 industrialized countries by 2012 to reduce their combined annual gas emissions to 5.2 percent below levels measured in 1990.

We are coming up on the 200th anniversary of New York’s most powerful hurricane, which would have destroyed Lower Manhattan – except that it came in at low tide.

The governor also seems to lack access to the New York City government.

New York has also had plenty of tornadoes, like this one which hit in 1923, right after a deadly heatwave.

The climate of New York isn’t getting worse, but the voters there certainly are. The press is doing everything they can to make voters as ignorant and superstitious as possible.
