Many, maybe most of us, are not at home when the warnings come. We can plan for our home safe room, but when you are in traffic or in a campground, there is no way to make a decision. Often in a motor home, you don't know what county you are in, don't know whether to drive in another direction, go to the office, sit still. Most of my daylight hours are spent where I have no idea where a safe place is.
"Most of my daylight hours are spent where I have no idea where a safe place is." Well then, it's your responsibility to find one ahead of time. Government won't do that for you, do your own thinking.
I think he is trying to show a historical comparison between other topics the republicans have been wrong on!
That the neocons are once again in complete denial with the truth. Man-made climate change is upon us and they are treating it like they did with President Obama's birth certificate, or the way they denied the fact that tobacco smoking caused lung cancer, instead calling it a liberal lie... How pathetic these simpletons are.
While I agree that we are having climate change, and that this is FACT (and don't understand why people don't accept this), the rest of your comments really don't have place here on this story.
There is no human fingerprint in tornado trends. My state climatologist explains how raw data is misleading and normalized data shows no trend increase in tornadoes.
'Tornado Trends in Illinois'
Here is an example of how the method for collecting data changes over time, causing a signal that looks like climate change. The first figure shows the annual number of tornadoes per year in Illinois since 1950, regardless of strength. Beginning in the 1990s, the number of tornadoes has increased dramatically with wider variations from year to year.
The second figure shows the lack of any systematic change in the stronger tornado events - those classified as F1 to F5 in the original Fujita Scale, and EF1 to EF5 in the Enhanced Fujita Scale. These represent the tornadoes that cause at least moderate damage and are well documented. No climate trend exists in these stronger events.
The third figure shows the upward trend in the number of the weakest F0 (EF0) tornadoes. These rarely cause any damage and traditionally were ignored. The upward trend in recent years is the result of better radar systems, better spotter networks, and increased awareness and interest by the public. Combined these factors have allowed for a better documentation of the weaker events over time. As a result, the number of observed tornadoes has increased without an indication of any underlying climate change. More information on Illinois tornadoes and the F-scale can be found here"
The truth? LOL. The demoCRAPS have yet to prove solidly that climate change is primarily man-made. Until then, it is the democraps' wishful thinking based on pseudo-science.
Does every serious subject need to be responded to with a simplistic, bumper-sticker political insult? Let thoughtful folks disagree on a subject, (even though this one is no longer in dispute). Have a beer with your Flat-Earth Society friends and leave serious discussions to others.
There is PLENTY of warning for hurricanes. If people don't get out of the way ahead of time, it's their own damn foolish fault!
