Meteorologist blasts those linking brutal blizzard to climate change

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi had a decidedly unscientific term for the effort to link Thursday’s frigid winter storm to human-caused climate change: “witchcraft.”

“This is flat out insanity and deception now,” Mr. Bastardi said Thursday in a tweet. “To tell the public that events that have occurred countless times before with no climate change attribution, is now just that, is not science, [it’s] witchcraft.”


The winter blast unleashed snow, high winds and freezing temperatures on the eastern seaboard this week as it moved from the Southeast to New England, resulting in snowflakes as far south as northern Florida and a record cold snap in Boston.

The fierce storm also triggered a rash of climate-change sightings as activists moved to deflect wisecracks about “global cooling” by arguing that the bitter cold was actually consistent with a warming planet.

The advocacy group 350.org warned Thursday that “2018 has just begun, and we’re already seeing stronger storms affected by climate change,” while New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared, “Extreme weather is here, and it’s real.”

    If the global warming alarm was never sounded, who would have seen the apparition?
    Climate change might seem like a more sophisticated concept but it’s actually a retreat.
    We’re currently witnessing 40 year old weather.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to live before climate change started when there were no extreme storms, hurricanes, floods, draughts, and heat waves? My grandmother’s mind must have been failing when she told me of a snow storm in Eastern Oregon in the 1930’s. Everyone was snowed in so where ever someone was when the storm hit was where they were for the next week.

    Climate alarmists pretend that nothing that far from average has never happened before. Then when more extreme events happen as they have for thousands of years, the alarmist then blame climate change. This includes the stampeding of walruses which happened a few years ago and in 1958.
