Your government is lying to you about extreme weather events
I wrote on Saturday that Biden sympathized briefly with the people in Kentucky before blaming climate change for the tornadoes. I said he was lying because serious weather events haven't escalated lately. They've remained stable over the decades or decreased in number and/or severity.
I was correct, but that point is so much better when you hear it from the horse's mouth: a real scientist who spends his life looking at; analyzing; and, obviously, understanding the data — and who has just released a video explaining the lies coming from the left when it comes to hurricanes and tornadoes.
Tony Heller is the proprietor of the very popular Real Climate Science website. Heller knows that people have questions about him, so he put together a post a couple of years ago giving just some of his bona fides:

Masters Electrical Engineering, Rice University
Boston University Geology
Northern Arizona University Computer Science
Colorado State University Computer Science
University of New Mexico Geochemistry

Suffice it to say that Heller knows a lot more than Biden or anyone in the Biden administration about climate phenomena. Just as I did, Heller took umbrage at the fact that the Biden administration instantly politicized the tornadoes and their awful outcome and, worse, that it did so relying on lies and misinformation. While Biden probably struggles now with which shoe goes on which foot, the people feeding him his lines know they're lying, but they lie anyway.
So, please, spend a few minutes watching Heller explain with perfect precision and clarity how leftists get away with claiming that our climate is more aggressive and dangerous than ever before when most of them know, or should know, that they are lying through their teeth:
One of the things you need to understand is that, in one way, leftists have the mental development of an infant. If you've ever played peek-a-boo with a baby, the game works so well because, to a baby's undeveloped brain, when your face vanishes behind your hands, you have vanished. (That kind of makes you wonder what babies think of living in a world in which everyone wears a mask.) Out of sight, out of mind is the perfect reflection of a minimally developed mind.
The contrary is true, too: if babies or leftists see a lot of one thing, they believe that, because they see so much of that thing, then its existence in the world must be overwhelming.
So think of this: leftists show COVID deaths on TV but not vaccine deaths. Leftists show endless footage of White suburban students crying after a school shooting but rush over footage of daily shootings in Black communities and barely mention defensive gun usages. And, to get to the point here, leftists show every single tornado on TV, running the same footage endlessly, but fail to acknowledge that severe tornadoes are vastly diminished in scope and frequency. I'm sure you can add your own example to the list.
What's important to know is that when it comes to leftists, no matter what they say, never trust, always verify.
