Well that didn’t take long

Oh, Toto, we're not going to be in Kansas very long!

Oh, Toto, we’re not going to be in Kansas very long!

After remaining silent during the quietest tornado season in decades, the global warmists resurface. Rhode Island Democrat blames Republicans for global warming and yesterday’s tragedy.

While children’s bodies were still being dug from the rubble. Let no crisis go unused.

I blame trailer parks.

UPDATE: A reader corrects me: at least as of 1976, tornadoes were caused by global cooling – and scientists said so!

  1. Tornados need cool air to exist.
    Coolest Spring in Oklahoma….in a long time….
    Hot air does not stop at CT. border…..

    Time for the government to outlaw tornadoes at elementary schools. And make all teachers meteorologists.

    Mr. Gardner,

    Sen. Whitehouse is a public servant and serves at the pleasure of that public. Even though I do not live in Rhode Island and cannot vote in that state (except I guess if I vote for Democrats), his presence in the Senate impacts all Americans to a certain degree. My tax dollars support his salary and benefits so he is fair game to anyone.
    Buffoons need to be called out and identified and by opening his mouth he merely confirmed what may have been speculation. To say that he should not be criticized because he is the best friend of you brother in law highlights the intellectual bankruptcy of those who defend this type of idiocy.
    He has put himself out in the public arena by choosing to be an elected official. Say something stupid expect to get hammered. He should spend more of his time trying to represent his constituents and try to raise the Ocean State from its abysmal economic plight instead of adding greenhouse gases by opening his mouth.

    • Amen. Our town in RI used to be one of the few Republican enclaves in the state. Somewhere before the 2008 election, many left the fold and Obama signs in driveways were the norm. Whitehouse is a horrible senator and Linc Chafee an even worse governor. With Buddy Cianci the poster boy for RI politics and crooked elections the rule not the exception, it’s tough for Mr. EOS, a RI native, to continue to claim this state his own.

      @ Publius: I’m not sure what happened to my original comment, but in substance it said he’s a friend of my brother-in-law, so I (meaning just me, and not you Publius, nor anyone else) chose to not say anything specific about Whitehouse pursuant to the often sage advice to say nothing at all when one has nothing nice to say. I had thought everyone could read between the lines, but I guess not. Anyway, I encourage you, and everyone else who wants to, to criticize him for his absurd views.

    Let’s Make a Deal. Behind door number one is Jeffrey Skilling and Arthur Anderson, behind door number two is Bernie Ebbers and WorldCom, and behind door number three is a head of cabbage and MF Global. Which door do you choose?

  5. Sheldon Whitehouse, preppy from St. Paul’s, Yale and U. of Virginia Law School: probably hasn’t taken a science course EVER. Sure glad he’s lecturing us about the science behind tornadoes, or global warming, or climate change, or the decline of polar bears, or…….

    How many dollars have been wasted on Homeland Security and the TSA, and how man lives has it saved? Zero? How much money has been spent on tornado shelters in tornado alley on lives that could have been saved? Zero?

    Same pile of steaming shit; just updated and served up to you:

    “Chris Durston records how the monstrous and the supernatural were seized on by political and religious factions in seventeenth century England as signs of judgment.

    During the seventeenth century, thousands of Englishmen and women were fascinated, intrigued and often appalled by reports of inexplicable miraculous or prodigious happenings. In the 1640s and 1650s in particular, the breakdown of effective press censorship produced an avalanche of almanacs, prophecies and miracle reports. Writing in 1660, John Gadbury defined a wonder, or prodigy as, ‘a thing (generally) that comes to pass beyond the altitude of man’s imagination and begets in him a miraculous contemplation, yea, often-times horror and amazement’.

    By their very nature, such incidents could take a wide variety of forms, but in the many published reports, they fall into several distinct categories. The most common ‘celestial wonders’, or unusual sights in the air, involved apparitions of pitched battles, church steeples, swords and balls of fire; there were also frequent reports of irregular planetary occurrences, such as duplicate suns and moons, rainbows at night, and the appearance of comets, meteors and blazing stars. Terrestrial or earthly wonders included freak weather conditions, such as rain turning to blood. Accounts of the births of deformed nr ‘monstrous’ animals and children were popular, and often luridly detailed, and a further category concerned the ‘strange and remarkable accidents’, usually involving sudden or painful illness and death, which were visited upon individuals as punishments from God. …”
