A TV reporter is caught acting pretending the wind is so strong in Florence while two people in the background are casually walking by. Besi9des that, the wind is coming from behind him and he is acting as if he is fighting against the wind from from the opposite direction. Hurricane Florence was downgraded to Category 1 before it made landfall. Instead of reporting the truth, the media seems desperate for attention and viewership that they are exaggerating and outright reporting propaganda. The media is so intent upon handing the country back to Democrats, there is not a single piece of news that they are now turning it against Trump claiming Global Warming is the reason for Florence. We can’t even just get honest weather reports without a political slant and manipulation.
The Washington Post has used the Hurricane Florence as an excuse to turn it against Trump reporting he is “complicit” on climate change and this storm is basically all his fault. Surely if we just taxes every house $1,000 a year as in Canada for the Global Warming Tax storms like this would NEVER happen again is the implication. The Post wrote:
YET AGAIN, a massive hurricane feeding off unusually warm ocean water has the potential to stall over heavily populated areas, menacing millions of people. Last year Hurricane Harvey battered Houston. Now, Hurricane Florence threatens to drench already waterlogged swaths of the East Coast, including the nation’s capital. If the Category 4 hurricane does, indeed, hit the Carolinas this week, it will be the strongest storm on record to land so far north.
President Trump issued several warnings on his Twitter feed Monday, counseling those in Florence’s projected path to prepare and listen to local officials. That was good advice.
Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.
1944 The Great Hurricane Worst to Hit New Jersey
I grew up in New Jersey and had a family friend we called an uncle who lived on the beach. Twice he lost his house that was swept out to sea in 1955 and again in 1960. The press is acting like there have never been storms like we have today and this is all because of Global Warming. The first three of the top 12 worse storms to hit New Jersey took place in 1804, 1806, and 1821 followed by 1903. All predate the combustion engine and CO2 emissions.
Then there was the famous Spanish Treasure Ship fleet where all 11 ships were sunk in a Hurricane of 1715. Hello! These are before they claim Global Warming began! The list of the worst storms from the 19th century forward is 1804, 1806, 1821, 1900, 1903, 1938, 1944, 1955, 1960, 1999, 2011, and 2012. The worst hurricane was 1900 insofar if the measurement is the number of people dead which reached 12,000 in Galveston, Texas.
After the hurricane of 2017 that was to hit my area of Florida, CNN had people scared to the point they were, according to the Associated Press, paying $1,725 for a flight from Fort Myers to Charlotte, North Carolina ahead of Irma. People around here hate CNN for their coverage last year. They staged things like standing in water while the film crew was not anywhere close to the same depths. You have to figure Anderson Cooper was also probably standing with his knees bent to make it look even deeper. They are trying so hard to manufacture news it has become outrageous.
CNN claimed there would be a storm surge of 7 to 10 feet. I live right on the beach and it reached maybe one foot. The other day, there were two young girls sitting at the next table and all they talked about was FAKE NEWS and how they will not even watch TV anymore. If they get caught manufacturing this nonsense, can we believe anything anyone says now in mainstream media left or right?
