Issue #92: Politicians Play Ridiculous Global Warming Card after Tornado

There are 3 comments on the The Heartland Institute story from May 24, 2013, titled Issue #92: Politicians Play Ridiculous Global Warming Card after Tornado. In it, The Heartland Institute reports that:

Not 24 hours passed from the time a devastating tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, killing at least 24 people including eight children, until shameless global warming activists in Congress began exploiting the grief and pain of a devastated community to tell an idiotic tale of global warming causing tornadoes.

More Cr*p from Heartless Institute. The conditions that produce tornadoes are 'proximate' and constitut 'weather'. But tornadoes that form ARE influenced by how much warm water is in the Gulf of Mexico from which they draw energy. The climate issue is illustrated bty the increase in EF4 and EF5 class tornadoes (statistically speaking)

Look at the rarity of these monsters back in the 50's in Oklahoma vs 2011 for example

Comments by Bob Dole critical of fellow Republicans are getting a lot of notice. The former Senate majority, 1996 GOP presidential nominee, and one-time party chairman has scathing words for current leaders of his party.

On "FOX News Sunday" Dole said, "I think they ought to put a sign on the National Committee door that says 'closed for repairs,' until New Years' Day next year, and spend that time going over ideas and positive agendas."

Dole said the Senate filibuster was being abused. "There are some cases when you could probably justify it," Dole said, "but not many."

Dole, 89, served in the Senate for 27 years, after eight in the House. He was RNC chairman under President Richard Nixon in the early 1970s. Dole was Gerald Ford's running mate in the 1976 election. He sought the GOP presidential nomination unsuccessfully in 1980 and 1988, before finally claiming the crown in 1996.

Senate Republicans elected Dole majority leader after the 1984 elections. After Democrats reclaimed the majority two years late Dole was minority leader for the next eight years. He was again elevated to majority leader after the 1994 Republican landslide. But he gave up his Senate seat in June 1996 to focus on what was ultimately an unsuccessful White House bid against Democratic President Bill Clinton.

The World War II hero, who has carried the scars of battle for decades, on Sunday called himself a "mainstream conservative Republican" who likely wouldn't fit in with today's tea party crowd. And he's not the only one.

"Reagan couldn't have made it. Certainly Nixon couldn't have made it, because he had ideas."

I counted 15 F4/F5 tornadoes in the 1950s.

From 2000 to 2010 I counted 5 F4/F5 torndoes.
