After it made landfall and weakened to a tropical storm, Harvey continued to dump record-breaking rain. So we'll be back on Monday.
The unsatisfying answer is Yes, No and It's the wrong question.
Climate change-enhanced extreme weather events. Meteorologists caution that computer model forecasts longer than 72 hours are not carved in stone, especially with a storm traveling over open water. In the case of many hurricanes, such as Harvey, the principal damage is from water rather than the brute force winds of Irma. "These storms, once they actually hit, are never as strong as they're reported". I'm sure there will be no shortage of volunteers who would arrange to give Limbaugh the generator power he needs at his home so he can stay there and broadcast throughout the storm. But as C.S. Lewis warned in "The Abolition of Man," we "can't go on "seeing through" things forever" because "t$3 o "see through" all things is the same as not to see".
Remember also that while they're both the same kind of storm, they're very different in their particulars.
Hurricane Irma is on its way.
So did Rush decide to maybe stop claiming the concerns about Irma are overblown and part of the lib agenda? No.
It has always been known that warmer ocean waters can serve as "fuel" for hurricanes, including those in the Atlantic and Caribbean. The storm gained strength as it crossed abnormally warm Gulf waters and grew to a Category 4 hurricane.
A slow, determined return to football in Texas after Harvey
The Texans' safety says it's volunteers like this that keep Houston strong. "Just keep on fighting to stay together". Items may be dropped off at Pineville City Hall Mon. through Friday . between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
In 2014, Coulter was called upon to defend game show host Pat Sajak's attack on climate change scientists calling them "unpatriotic". They are a product of a nature-plus. "I can't tell you the number of media people and elected officials all talking about this hurricane, Hurricane Irma, it's no doubt due to climate change".
The local topography even protects us from the threat of wildfires.
How other hurricane factors are affected by climate is still unclear.
Warmer air makes for more rainfall. These climate-driven shock waves may reach a point where the impacts to all of us become much greater. That's important work, but it also shows how mired we still are in the false debate over whether climate change is real, and risky.
Experts warn that while climate change did not cause the storm engulfing Texas, the destructiveness of Harvey has nearly certainly been intensified by global warming.
That's why virtually every nation in the world agreed two years ago - now minus the United States - to face the challenge, try to dial back emissions to reduce the damage and pump resources into helping get ready for what we know is coming. Researchers from Climate Central calculated that sea level rise alone-not counting any effects from higher temperatures in oceans-will mean that in many areas, 100-year floods will soon happen every ten years or so.
Put a live TV feed on Limbaugh during the storm and you could create an event that raises more money than the recent Mayweather/McGregor boxing match.
