It’s as if American’s memory doesn’t extend beyond 10 years. If they don’t remember it / experience it, it never happened.
“There have been many flood disasters in the Houston area, even dating to the mid-1800s when the population was very low.” – Climatologist Roy Spencer Ph.D.
While the mainstream media and other alarmists are eagerly blaming human-caused global warming for the flooding in Houston caused by Hurricane Harvey, others are saying, “Not so fast.”
One of them is climatologist and former NASA scientist Roy W. Spencer, Ph.D., who says Harvey was nothing more than a “natural weather disaster.” They’ve “always occurred and always will occur,” he added. Spencer explains that global warming alarmists, like Al Gore, favor the dishonest tactic of “making naturally-occurring severe weather seem unnatural,” when all the while, there’s always a logical explanation:
“There have been many flood disasters in the Houston area, even dating to the mid-1800s when the population was very low. In December of 1935 a massive flood occurred in the downtown area as the water level height measured at Buffalo Bayou in Houston topped out at 54.4 feet.”
But maybe a man-warmed Harvey brought in an “unprecedented” amount of rain? Not so, says Spencer: “Harvey stalled after it came ashore and so all of the rain was concentrated in a relatively small portion of Texas around the Houston area…”
“And don’t forget, we just went through an unprecedented length of time – almost 12 years – without a major hurricane (Cat 3 or stronger) making landfall in the U.S.”
“Weird stuff happens… Weather disasters happen, with or without the help of humans,” Spencer concludes.
