We all know that MSM is a liberal lie-machine who are simply there to twist and contort all truth to fit the insane liberal left narrative. We say this all the time and numerous times a day. Yet they manage to come up with something more stupid by the hour it seems.
A reporter in Texas decided to interview people who had just been rescued and taken to a shelter. Instead of asking how they were rescued or about their general well being, or even questioning them on the experience itself, the MSM reporter took this time to continue ignorant leftist rhetoric about climate change being responsible for Hurricane Harvey.
One such survivor was having no part of the reporters agenda and set them straight real quick!
According to the Conservative Tribune :
For the past few days, a large part of Texas has been experiencing one of the worst natural disasters to occur in the United States in many years — and the threat of torrential rain and flooding from Hurricane Harvey still isn’t over with.
Rather than focus on the victims and the sheer devastation, one CNN anchor decided that this would be a good time to try to bring climate change into the discussion — except he got completely shut down by an expert who actually knows what he is talking about.
CNN anchor John Berman was a discussing on Friday the fact that Hurricane Harvey has dumped more rain on Texas than is usual for a hurricane, and asked Bill Read, the former director of the National Hurricane Center, if climate change had anything to do with it.
“Is there a why to this? Why there is so much water associated with this storm?” asked Berman. “One thing we heard from scientists over the last 10 years is that climate change does impact the intensity of many of the storms that we see.”
I guess Berman hasn’t been paying attention very much because over the past 10 years the United States has actually had very few major hurricanes come ashore.
“I’m not — I’m probably wouldn’t attribute what we’re looking at here. This is not an uncommon occurrence to see storms grow and intensify rapidly in the western Gulf of Mexico,” Reed replied.
Hurricanes need warm water to grow. The Gulf of Mexico has warm water due to being located near the equator. That’s a very simple equation — one that Berman is apparently incapable of doing.
“That’s as long as we’ve been tracking them, that has occurred. The why for the big rain is the stationarity. That fact that the storm is going to come inland and not move … while it has happened in some cases, to have a really big storm come and stall like this is really rare,” he stated.
Yes, Harvey is causing flooding that is being described as a “once every 500 years” event, but that doesn’t mean that climate change is responsible for it.
Occasionally, we just get unlucky and the perfect combination of factors occurs in nature to create a devastating storm like Harvey. These sorts of storms have happened before, and they will happen again. That’s just a fact of life.
Maybe Berman should leave the science to the scientists and just talk about the things that matter — like how people can pitch in to help Texans rebuild once the rain has stopped.
These people who were just in the middle of one of the worst hells that anyone has ever seen nationwide do not need these tragedy-chasers asking them stupid questions right now. These survivors need medical attention, food, and warmth. Wake up MSM, because you are the problem in this country and you need to be shut down. Even the Weather Service is ignorant and self-agenda-promoting during this tragic time, and it is sick.
Prayers and help are all these people need. If you are not part of the solution then you need to step aside and leave them alone. Much respect to those reporters were on the ground offering actual assistance during and after the storm, but the rest of the MSM scum need to just stop before one of these poor people snap on them in a way they will not be expecting!
