Hurricane Michael nearing Category 4 strength

There are 25 comments on the Chicago Tribune story from Wednesday Oct 10, titled Hurricane Michael nearing Category 4 strength. In it, Chicago Tribune reports that:

Fast and furious Hurricane Michael barreled toward the Florida Panhandle late Tuesday night with 125 mph winds and a potentially catastrophic storm surge of 13 feet, giving tens of thousands of people precious little time to board up and get out. Drawing energy from warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the storm strengthened rapidly into a potentially devastating Category 3 during the day and just kept getting stronger in the hours ahead of an expected Wednesday landfall.

Hey, Wichita Falls. I have been to your town. Anyway, now even acts of nature are Democratic or
Republican? Have we gone too far with the political splits?

My grandkids enjoyed the beach for only 36 hours, before hearing of the evacuation. Fortunately, they're out of the area now.

I feel terrible for the ones who couldn't afford to leave. Praying for it to weaken before it hits.

Hope it destroys the paper mill South of Panama City. Makes the whole area smell like dirty diapers.

So you won't be surprised next year when San Francisco is utterly destroyed by the 8.8 that is on the way?

Grow up people. God is not doing this, so get off your high horses. We are doing it to ourselves through our misuse of this earth and causing global warming. These type of disasters in nature will continue to happen frequently and continue to get worse. Scientists have warned that the time is almost passed to be able to slow it down. But then we have "leaders" telling us global warming is a hoax. SMH

The occurrence of hurricanes striking the U.S. during the last decade has actually declined significantly. Multi-year ice has expanded at the Poles in complete conflict with the claim that the North Pole would be gone by now. Sea level rise is so insignificant, dried up ports still exist in the world and sea level islands have not been affected in the slightest. There has been no expanding desertification anywhere on Earth. Some glaciers are actually expanding, others decreasing just as they did long before industrialization. Sea ice is so thick in the norther polar regions, that ice breakers get stuck. Sea ice has actually expanded south with winter sea ice documented off the shores of Delaware. The world has seen significant snow in Europe and America in August. Other fears of such as Polar Bears diminishing and facing extinction have been shown totally nonsense, with the bear populations thriving and healthy.

Global warming fearmongers would not have had to delete data and actually alter data in their databases used in their predictive programs if they weren't dishonest and unreliable. They have been fraudulent and the only reason someone is dishonest is to profit and force political orientations on the world.

Global Warming is a socialist scam designed to distribute American wealth globally through the United Nations. "Scientists" are faking weather data to achieve a predetermined outcome. The Earth is neither warming nor cooling. Don't be a sucker!

Satellite data actually shows the Earth is cooling slightly, although there was an insignificant rise of less than one degree Celsius since the first measurements began to be made. However, the placement of temperature monitors in city areas of asphalt and concrete parking lots and next to heat retaining buildings may well have affected that data collation. There is also the real temperature rise on Mars to be considered, suggesting that temperatures are affected by Sun activity alone. Now, the satellite temperature readings are suggesting a cooling trend, which just so happens to coincide with a significant reduction in solar activity, which is projected to last for years.

"Scientists" purposely move weather stations to areas with higher ambient temperatures such as airports or parking lots to fake their data. The weather station at Logan Airport in Boston had been on top of the control tower for about 40 years until 1994 when NOAA asked them to move it to an area closer to the runways. Then they failed to calibrate the station to account for the higher ambient temperatures.

"Scientists" at NASA have satellite data from GOES which shows exact temperatures for the entire planet, but they skew weather data collected by terrestrial weather stations and announce these skewed temperatures as factual data. This is the reason NASA chief Charles Bolden resigned on Trump's inauguration day.

Try moving to Galveston, Beaumont or somewhere on the Gulf Coast and try making that statement. Have you ever actually been in a hurricane? Ike, Rita, Cindy, and Hurricane Harvey. Those are just the ones off the top of my head.

Forecasting the weather out any further than a week in most places is speculative at best. It's such a dynamic system.

So how can anyone know? Here, when they say it's gonna rain it doesn't, then all of a sudden out of nowhere it does.

Rita was 2005. Harvey was last year. We've had two landfalls this year. That's probably normal.
