WARREN IN IOWA: Forget Midwest Droughts, FLOODS Now Proof of Climate Catastrophe

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.28.19

Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren continued to promote the ‘Green New Deal’ on the campaign trail over the weekend; using the current floods impacting Iowa as proof that “the consequences of climate change are severe.”

“The consequences of climate change are severe, and they are already affecting places like Burlington, Iowa. We have a moral responsibility to act—now,” posted Warren on social media.

“Must have already forgot that just a few years ago they were talking about the number of droughts and how the great lakes were at their lowest levels ever and climate change would lead to more drought,” posted one user on social media.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made similar claims in recent days; saying a typical DC thunderstorm was proof that the “climate crisis is real.”

“The freshman congresswoman began by sharing a video on Instagram briefly showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region and prompted a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway,” writes Fox News.

“They just issued a tornado watch in DC. Oh no, there’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out! This is crazy,” said the Congresswoman.

“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”

“The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue was quick to point out the legislator’s error.

“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” wrote Maue. “Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

“I thought this was fake but it’s from @AOC Instagram story. No idea what she means with ‘casual tornadoes’ and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any ‘climate crisis’. It’s just the weather in D.C,” he added.
