More Climate Change False Alarms

Recorded on April 5, 2012

As usual, spring has brought violent weather like tornadoes and thunderstorms. Activists blame us for causing global warming and changes in our climate.

That notion has been discredited, but it's still used as an excuse to stop building roads, to force people into smaller inner-city homes, and to limit your use of labor-saving tools and appliances.

But the federal agency that runs the National Weather Service disagrees. They say we don't fully understand tornadoes, but there's no proof that any human activity causes twisters. And climate change deals with immense forces over vast periods of time, totally unlike tornadoes or major storms. Those are just brief, unpredictable events that cannot be compared to the climate.

Don't be scared by false alarms about global warming. Those are being used as an excuse for government to grab more control of your life.
