Liberals And Tornadoes

Written by Andrew Linn on December 13, 2021

In the aftermath of the tornadoes that left devastation and tragedy throughout the Central United States, liberals are blaming Republicans for the storms. Why? Because the liberals are convinced that tornadoes are the result of man-made climate change, a.k.a. global warming. And therefore, they are pushing for Green policies.

For instance, liberals have accused Senator Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell of Kentucky of opposing policies that would have (in their view) reduced climate change.

No doubt these environmentalists have targeted both Senators not just because Kentucky suffered death and destruction from tornadoes, but also because Kentucky is a major coal-producing state. And thus another front in the War on Coal appears to have emerged.

In 2022, Rand Paul will be up for re-election. And one of the Democratic contenders is former State Representative Charles Booker, who plans on being Kentucky’s version of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) by promoting a plan known as the Kentucky New Deal, which includes a plan to combat climate change.

I am certain that Booker will try to take advantage of the situation in order to defeat Rand Paul in next year’s election.

I am also certain that AOC will show up in Kentucky or the states affected by the tornadoes under the guise of helping those in need, but also in order to promote the Green New Deal, just like she did in the aftermath of the Texas snowstorm earlier this year. In the aftermath of the snowstorm that knocked out the grid in Texas, she claimed such a disaster would not have happened had her Green New Deal become law. So just as she has targeted Ted Cruz, I would not be surprised if she tries to target Rand Paul.

Meanwhile, the Biden Administration is citing these tornadoes as proof of man-made climate change and is pushing for environmental policies.

But the politically incorrect truth is there has been a decline in stronger, more devastating tornadoes since the latter half of the Twentieth Century. As for weaker tornadoes, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provides statistics which indicate they have increased, but such stats have been inflated due to an increase in reports of tornadoes (as well as increased populations and National Doppler radar coverage), in which it appears that there have been more tornadoes, when in actuality that is not the case.

There is the quote: “Never let a crisis go to waste”. That is definitely the scenario with the Biden Administration and the liberals.
