Left Blames Oklahoma Tragedy on Climate Change

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 21, 2013

Even before the dead have been buried in Oklahoma, Progressives are attempting to use this horrific tragedy for political gain.  Last night, CNN’s Leftist commentator Piers Morgan was interviewing climate scientist Bill Nye and asked:

Piers Morgan – “As a scientist, when you hear about the size, scale, power, devastation of this tornado, what does it tell you about the ongoing debate about climate change?

Bill Nye – Instead of offering a straightforward answer which would have had been that he did not know, the scientist responded: “Thunderstorms are driven by heat and a tornado is a super thunderstorm — result of a super thunderstorm. So you’ve got to figure that if there’s more heat driving the storm then there’s going to be more tornadoes.  Now this is the kind of thing that is worth investigating,” This is but a weasel worded way of saying he did not know.

If Piers Morgan wanted an honest response concerning any connection between the tornado and global warming he could have asked the scientist if the amount of tornadoes and their ferocity have changed over the decades.  But question might lead to an inconvenient truth.

It is not surprising that the Left would use human tragedy to further political aims.  It is a hallmark of their modus operandi.  Whether the event be the shooting of children in Connecticut or the death of Oklahomans by tornado, the Left never lets a crisis go unused.
