Global Warming Caused Virginia Tornadoes?
The appropriately titled The Daily Green (isn't that an off-colored bowel movement?) says, "Some scientists have warned that global warming will create conditions that will make tornado outbreaks more frequent and violent."
So, as is my job to debunk what Lefty sites and blogs "feel" rather than siding with facts, I spent a few minutes researching the worst tornadoes experienced in the United States.
The following information on the five worst tornadoes in the U.S. is from Suite 101 and they list their references and sources for what they published from data obtained by the National Weather Service, Live Science, Epic Disasters, Wikipedia and the Tornado Project:
Number One: The Tri-State Tornado on March 18, 1925:
Missouri, Illinois and Indiana were all affected by the Tri-State tornado.
Death toll: 695
Number Two: The Natchez Tornado on May 7, 1840:
The Natchez Tornado first touched down in Concordia Parish, Louisiana then followed the Mississippi River for 7 miles before hitting Natchez Mississippi.
Death toll: 317
Number Three: The St. Louis/East St. Louis Tornado on May 27, 1896:
The St Louis tornado struck the southwest end of the city of St Louis Missouri creating a path of destruction through the urban area.
Death Toll: 255
Number Four: The Tupelo Tornado on April 5, 1936:
The Tupelo tornado first touched down near Coffeeville and skirted the center of Tupelo but destroyed residential sections of the city.
Death Toll: 233
Number Five: The Gainesville Tornado on April 6, 1936:
The Gainesville tornado was actually a pair of funnels with the smaller one hitting north of the city and the larger one heading for downtown
Death Toll: 203

You are so right. We should all panic because Al Gore, Junior is a huckster preaching specious science.
I direct your attention to the YEARS of the 5 tornadoes listed. If you're saying global warming is responsible for those 5 tornadoes then I'd expect you would have evidence to back it up. Sadly, you can only manage an ad hominem attack. Not very objective and definately not very smart.
And if I thought only like a liberal (which I don't) then yes, things would only exist only after I heard of them. But I don't think that way.
Anonymous must not know that during the little ice age the earth cooled slightly and for it to warm up after that is not unexpected nor surprising.
A fine post as usual Davd.
I totally agree that after a cooling period it is not unusual to expect a slight warming. The Alarmists have no basis or facts backing them, just a bunch of ersatz science that is countered with just as many scientists and researchers who maintain that global warming is not caused by humans.
Thanks for adding your thoughts on this and for visiting.
p.s.: Al Dork is a F5 Douche-Bag!
There's proof that there's more polar bears and penguins alive today than at any other time in history. But instead, you just keep buying into all the false bullshit Al Gore and his like-minded idiots throw at you.
Say...you write just like the little faggot "treehugger" from Boulder, CO. Is that you commenting under a different name?
