"But here is what we absolutely know..."

That the people who elected you are, quite possibly, even more ignorant and useless than you are?

He even got the "here's what we already know" part wrong. The jet is 10 km above the ground, the "warm Gulf air" is a km or two above the ground. They do not "meet."

I love hearing politicians tell us how every scientist in the world is wrong and then spew science "facts" that any elementary school kid could disprove.  Keep up the good work congressman.
Oh, tell us your enlightened views on evolution and biology while you're at it.  Can't wait to hear the wondrous knowledge you have.

What is it about Republicans and lapel pins? They think it somehow accessorizes their suit, yet it does the exact opposite. It disrupts the V-shape style lines of the jacket. It looks like a suction-cup dart stuck on a Van Gogh painting. Yeah, yeah, I know, explaining style and nuance to a republican is a losing game.

"We know that Oklahoma will have tornadoes when the cold jet stream meets the warm Gulf air, and we also know that this President spends 30 times as much money on global warming research as he does on weather forecasting and warning. For this gross misallocation, the people of Oklahoma are ready to accept the President's apology and I intend to submit legislation to fix this."

You know what? I've come back around on this. Fark you, Oklahoma. I hope the Teabaggers in Congress demand 2 Trillion dollars of tax cuts for every dollar in relief spending so that the bill fails and you get nothing. This is the world you wanted to live in. Deal with it.

What you don't understand about Okies is that they have a sixth sense about this sort of thing. Tornadoes are in their blood, much like methamphetamines. These intrepid pioneers don't need facts, because they have Jim Bridenstine. With that kind of arsenal on your side, nothing else is required. All those scientists think and believe that climate change is real, whereas Jim knows it's not. See the difference there? With all you libs always talking about how beliefs do not outweigh knowledge, it think the answer is pretty clear. The look on his face tells me that this is a man who knows his tornadoes, and who are you going to believe, an elected member of congress, or random, uninformed people on a message board. My money's on an apology from Obama, complete with flowers, and makeup sex.

NOAA had its budget cut 7% by sequestration.  But since that doesn't personally affect this congressman like having to wait slightly longer to get on a plane, and provides a reason to blame yet another something else on Obama - well, it's just not important enough to fix.

The BHO couldn't possibly have committed all of those scandals.  Coolio did some of that shiat.

Truly, it was a terrible burden for Bridenstine.  As the ideal Okie, he knew beforehand that Moore was going to be hit by a devastating tornado.
But like Churchill allowing the bombing of Coventry, he made the correct decision.  Let the attack happen without warning anyone in order to protect the greater good: being able to biatch about Obama.

If what you say is correct, and I know it is, since you are agreeing with me, I will go to whitehouse.gov and put in a petition to have Bridenstine put in charge of NORTHCOM, because we can't afford to lose the war on domestic weather. These tornadoes are the lone wolves of weather terrorism, striking without any notice. We need real leadership if we're going to meet this threat head-on.

Well, 1.) Oklahoma has always been the epicenter of violent tornadoes.

2.) You can't blame any specific weather pattern on climate change (it is called climate change, after all.)

3.) While there has been an increase in reported tornadoes, so-called violent tornadoes (defined as EF4-5 rating,) has remained fairly steady, which means the rate of tornadoes hitting areas where they can get a high rating is remaining about the same. We're just getting better at spotting tornadoes, which is a good thing. 2011 appears to have been a fluke, thankfully, as we haven't had a repeat so far, but it is really too soon to say.

If you're going to prove the effects of global warming, you're going to have to find something else, specifically something broader.

I'd think that having two EF5 tornadoes strike one state within weeks of each other isn't just unusual, it's alarming. The occurrence of EF5 tornadoes has been rising, right along with other forms of severe and extreme weather; we are now getting long term droughts, multistate floods, record snowfalls, hurricanes that do tremendous amounts of damage, and now severe tornadoes, all some times in the same year. It's the kind of study to figure out if this is a trend or not that the idiotic Congressman is railing against; he already "knows" why tornadoes are formed, so why bother study them or anything else for that matter?

If the free market thought there was a reason to predict tornadoes in the area, I'm sure they would step up and offer this service.  Why does this big government leach want to waste TAX PAYER stolen money funding SCIENTISTS to "predict" the weather?

Yep. He said in an interview that he thought some people just wear them as an empty gesture to show how patriotic they are. Which well, is true. This turned into "0bama hates the flag and refuses to honor it"

This is both when I knew I wanted to vote for this guy, and also when I knew this is why most smart people stay far away from politics because of this kind of ridiculous bullshiat.
