I know people who had two feet of Chinese hoax in their living room.

Good Article John, I bet if asked the man from Oklahoma would say the Great Dust Bowl in his state in the 30s was not caused by man. If man doesn't do something soon and hopefully not too late, Mother Nature is going to make living on this rock harder and maybe impossible in the future.

It was nearly 12 years till Harvey that the last major hurricane made landfall in the U.S., which is the longest such period on record.
Harvey couldn’t go any further, so it just meandered, because it was blocked by high pressure in midwest.

1915 3 hurricanes hit USA two at Cat 4.

List of 3 or more hurricanes hitting USA in a year.

1852 3 hurricanes, 1854 3 hurricanes, 1860 3 hurricanes, 1861 3 hurricanes, 1869 4 hurricanes, 1870 3 hurricanes, 1871 3 hurricanes, 1879 3 hurricanes, 1880 4 hurricanes, 1854 3 hurricanes, 1882 3 hurricanes,
1886 6 hurricanes hit USA, 1887 4 hurricanes, 1881 3 hurricanes, 1893 4 hurricanes, 1896 3 hurricanes, 1898 3 hurricanes, 1906 4 hurricanes, 1909 4 hurricanes, 1913 3 hurricanes, 1915 3 hurricanes 2 at Cat 4, 1916 4 hurricanes, 1926 3 hurricanes, 1933 5 hurricanes, 1936 3 hurricanes, 1944 3 hurricanes, 1947 3 hurricanes, 1948 3 hurricanes, 1949 3 hurricanes, 1950 3 hurricanes, 1953 3 hurricanes, 1954 3 hurricanes, 1955 3 hurricanes,
1959 3 hurricanes, 1964 4 hurricanes, 1971 3 hurricanes, 1985 5 hurricanes, 1989 3 hurricanes, 1998 3 hurricanes, 1999 3 hurricanes, 2004 5 hurricanes,and for six weeks, Florida reeled under the assault of four hurricanes.

It is likely that 2017 will see a net increase in Greenland’s ice mass for the first time this century.
125,000 years ago was definitely warmer than today based on paleoclimatic data from tree rings, ice cores, sediments and other ways of examining Earth's history said NASA climate scientist Gavin Schmidt.
I don't think there were any automobiles 125,000 years ago.

I think a good bit of the deny on climate change comes as a result of friends and money. He has friends with lots of money, that oil is their cash cow. Then there's the friends of friends, that coal is their cash cow. Any thinking person, that has been on this earth for any length of time knows the weather has changed in their lifetime. The men and women of science for the most part say it is due to the pollution man has put into the air. Yet the opposition says it's not. Maybe that group needs to never go to a medical doctor, as they depend on science to cure. Or maybe, it's just something in the drinking water in Oklahoma. Another good one, John.

"In 166 years of record-keeping...." And with that Brummett stumbles into his own logical fallacy. Climate has been happening on the Earth for literally billions of years. It's insane to think accurate conclusions can be drawn from a sample size so small (166/1,000,000,000,000). No true scientist would ever make such a claim.
It's always interesting to note the climate change cult accuses the opposition of being "science deniers" while supporting the notion a person can change the science of gender. Liberal hypocrisy truly has no bounds.

This climate change hoax is as redundant as Hillary's excuses.

Packman, I thought the GOP thought that the Earth was only created a few thousand years ago. I guess that is actually just the ultra-religious corner of the party? You are right that the sample size is very small. Unfortunately by the time it is large enough to analyze, there won't be anyone left alive to do it.

In the cool of the evening the deity was walking [huh?] in the garden. Adam where art thou and your lovely Eve? Whatyou been doing?

The point being if the deity cant figure out where primates are hiding or what they have been doing, the most powerful being in the universe as long as it doesnt mess with iron chariots, how can mere creations of the creator, talking primates [ of course there are talking donkeys and snakes] do not have the ability to figure out climate change which we will all agree is harder to figure out than where them two creatures were hiding in the garden and/or what they been doing. [ uncle joe chirps in but the deity has the power to know everything, and see all], I remind him sea bass claims the same powers but is batting about .101.

I suggest that all the divines just use their powers and knowledge to turn dirty water into clean water, turn dirty air from clean coal to clean air, and as to the climate , making things up here kinda like San Diego wouldnt be a bad idea.

I heard tom coburn from Oklahoma has the world's biggest snowball collection.

Well, let's see. The scientists said that the earth is getting warmer and that includes ocean waters. These same scientists predicted that the warmer ocean could cause bigger monster hurricanes. This year we've gotten hit with two monster hurricanes. There just might be something to what the scientists are telling us!
