Climate Change? (Bonus: George Carlin Comments) lol

YES .. There are some BAD WORDS!

( Couldn't find a 'clean' version) :lol:



Quote
The 1933 Atlantic hurricane season was the second most active Atlantic hurricane season on record, with 20 storms forming in the northwest Atlantic Ocean. 
A tropical cyclone was active for all but 13 days from June 28 to October 7. The year was surpassed in total number of tropical cyclones by the 2005 season, which broke the record with 28 storms.

Tropical cyclones that did not approach populated areas or shipping lanes, especially if they were relatively weak and of short duration, may have remained undetected. Because technologies such as satellite monitoring were not available until the 1960s, historical data on tropical cyclones from this period are often not reliable. Compensating for the lack of comprehensive observation, one hurricane researcher estimates the season could have produced 24 tropical cyclones.

Of the 20 storms during the season, 11 attained hurricane status. Six of those were major hurricanes, with sustained winds of over 111 mph (179 km/h). Two of the hurricanes reached winds of 160 mph (260 km/h), which is a Category 5–the highest of 5– on the modern Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.

The season produced several deadly storms, with eight storms killing more than 20 people. All but 3 of the 20 known storms affected land at some point during their durations.

I didn't always care for Carlin's politics, but this time he was on the money. Thanks for the reminder!

Same here, much of his early stuff was full of liberal bull shit, but about a decade later he seemed to start waking up and this one is a good example of it.

What's the old saw? If you're under 30 and you're not a liberal, you don't have a heart, and if you're over 30 and you're not a conservative, you don't have a brain. Carlin mellowed a little late, but mellow he eventually did.
