For the record, Hurricane Irma is NOT proof of global warming
We're already seeing it:

Hurricane Irma’s epic size is being fuelled by global warming
[link to www.newscientist.com (secure)]

Hurricane Irma Made Worse by Climate Change, Scientists Say
[link to www.bloomberg.com (secure)]

Etc.

The evidence?

"Global warming is warming the Atlantic"
[link to www.newscientist.com (secure)]

When a claim like this is made, particularly in a scientific context, contravening evidence must be considered.

What would constitute contravening evidence in this case?

How about an historical record of powerful hurricanes absent such alleged global warming?

List of Category 5 Atlantic hurricanes
[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

Meteorological monsters: Only 3 Category-5 hurricanes have ever hit the U.S.
[link to www.usatoday.com (secure)]

Or how about a history of Atlantic temperatures for context?

Atlantic temperatures: 1860-2020
[link to www.vukcevic.talktalk.net]

Atlantic temperatures: Last 750 years
[link to c3headlines.typepad.com]

The claim that Hurricane Irma is "fueled by global warming" is simply a case of confirmation bias. "Scientists," ignoring the historical record, have decided without evidence and contrary to contravening evidence that Hurricane Irma is caused by global warming to push their agenda.

Here we go again:

Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin on how bureaucrats spin scientific data.

[link to www.wsj.com]

Koonin says to always read the "fine print", so lets do that: Irma is the most powerful Hurricane ever recorded in the "Atlantic", means the "Atlantic Basin", not the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, etc.

When the average American, using the high school definition of Atlantic, reads that, they will assume it includes all bodies of water on the East Coast. MSM / NOAA spin as usual.

I wondered about that, because there was a hurricane with winds of 190mph on the wikipedia list.

I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
