Or call us dry, thirsty and hungry from drought.

More erratic weather is a sign of climate change....and so is less erratic weather.  Presto.  I solved the mystery.  Thread over.  Yay me.  \o/

If it prevents 17 tornadoes in one day like last year, I'm all for it.

Moon-bat predictions: Worst weather evar
Reality: Record low tornadoes.

Moon-bat predictions: Hockey stick graph
Reality: US Headed For The Coldest Spring On Record

Moon-bat predictions: the glaciers in Himalayas and ice in Arctic will lead to rising of sea levels and a large number of most populous coastal cities in India and China other nations then be totally submersed by sea
Reality: Zero loss of ice
*Note that the claim is being made AFTER the study that shows zero melting. moonbats never learn. It's like AverageAmericanGuy who kept claiming a right wing conspiracy for the shooting at the Family Research Center after the shooter was arrested and identified as a Liberal gay activist. And other farkers blaming the TX IRS airplane attack on "Tea-Party" when the perpetrator was ID'ed as a far left nut who posted his liberal manifesto online. A manifesto that included hatred of Bush, conservatism, capitalism, etc...

The ignorant are easily swayed.

This just in:  Tornadoes aren't the only kind of bad weather.  Also, the US isn't the entire world.

It's cyclical/solar activity/not influenced by humans/not really happening at all.

People seem to be forgetting the record breaking drought that occurred last year. No thunderstorms driving rapid temperature shifts means less tornados.

Is the world warming? Yes. Is the warming largely due to human activity? Most likely, most scientists say. Will this warming have consequences for the planet and its residents? Without question. But we still have much work to do to fully understand those consequences. A big problem, of course, is that by the time we fully understand the consequences, it may be too late to act meaningfully.

In any case, overstating the severity of some consequences (i.e. linking the 2010-2011 tornado outbreak to climate change) only emboldens willful skeptics who would hold the very real uncertainty of some aspects of climate change science as a quarterstaff upon the credibility of its general conclusions.

Yeah they are. Did you know that tornados don't come around much in a drought? I wonder if there is some sort of drought going on?

I'm going to have to dig out my calculator to do that long division.

Regular daytime high for this part of Canada: 12 Celcius
Forecast high for next three days... 20, 23, 21

Bring on the global warming!

"Forgetting" might not be the most accurate word here.

It's highly amusing to remember how most of the Fark Libs were so sure that the Boston bombings were the result of "teabaggers" and were also absolutely positive in their belief that there would be no connection with the Religion of Peace.

Ignorance? Or ideologically-motivated stupidity?  Why not both?

I can't remember...is one season's worth of weather a valid argument FOR climate change, or only AGAINST it?

The paper of record for America's oil refinery city full of right-wingers runs an article denying climate change?  Color me astonished.

"what to make of this year's tornado drought?

Friday, May 3, 2013"

If it's still the first week of May, then the Dumbass tag must have gotten stuck in traffic on I-45.  Wait three months, then look for the obliterated Texoma town biatching for federal disaster relief funds like one o' them libby Big Guvmint lovers.

Pretty much.

I mean, they do it every. farking. time. The three exceptions I am aware of: the OK City bombing; the abortion doctor killer, and the PP guy.
