Rush Limbaugh: Irma is Fake News

September 5, 2017

UPDATE:

Climate expert Mike Mann comments on Rush’s rant.

As climate denial retreats to a dead end box canyon, expect more of this denial derangement syndrome.
In this case, the very distillation of Dunning-Kruger.

Excerpt:

Now, in the official meteorological circles, you have an abundance of people who believe that man-made climate change is real, and they believe that Al Gore is correct when he has written, and he couldn’t be more wrong, that climate change is creating more hurricanes and stronger hurricanes. And, of course, when Harvey hit, it was the first hurricane that had hit in 12 years. There haven’t been more hurricanes and they’re no more dangerous than any others in previous years.

Do dopes float? Stay tuned.

    It’s larger than the state of Ohio, if that helps put it in perspective.

    But only half as large as Limbaugh’s opinion of himself.

    It’s a shame Limbaugh’s “Deep State” can’t put him in a small sailboat off the SE tip of Florida and let him try to bluster his way out of Irma’s path. Maybe televise it via satellite as a pay per view event… Rush vs. the Atmosphere.

    I’d pay to watch.

    The “Rush Limbaugh” scientist says at 1:20 he don’t agree with the “Al Gore” scientist. These 2 primary hurricane experts of the human species should just duke it out scientifically in public, settle that.

    1:50 “you don’t even need the hurricane to hit anywhere. All you need is the… talk, that climate change is causing hurricanes to become… more dangerous and you create the panic and its mission accomplished, agenda advanced.” You don’t need the hurricane to hit anywhere? Surely it can’t hurt when it drowns a major American city causing $190 billion in damage, right? How can anyone look at what Harvey did to Houston and say ‘Don’t worry, folks! Now is not the time to panic!’? Dude, you’re in a 5-alarm fire. Panic already.

    3:08 “a vicious circle is created… the local media… reports in such a way as to create the panic… which sends people into these stores [of their advertisers] … and it becomes a never-ending repeated cycle. And the two coexist: The media benefits from the panic with increased eyeballs, and the retailers benefit… with increased sales.” This man is telling his listeners, many of them aged, ‘Don’t Take Irma Seriously. The ‘elite’ are just trying to scare you’. Those who listen to him may literally pay with their lives. The ‘vicious circle’ causing media panic is currently a Cat 5 in the Caribbean. And the models that place Florida in its bulls-eye are not part of a media panic-machine, nor are they investors in Home Depot. This is just completely irresponsible of Limbaugh.


  5. I think that he’d rather folks not prepare, but instead just sit at home and be steamrolled by the hurricane.

    If Limbaugh is so convinced, he should park his RV directly in the path of Irma and get the inside story. Then he can tell us in a new video, or not as the case may be.
    Please, Rush, do it. I dare you.

    Not to worry. If a hurricane comes near Palm Beach, El Limbo will skedaddle to one of his other locations. For the good of the show, don’t ‘cha know. The show must go on. Meanwhile the help will be instructed to batten down the hatches and lay in some supplies while he is gone. And the drugs had better still be there when he returns, or there will be heck to pay.

    I guess meteorologists have joined the Vast International Conspiracy of Climatologists And Virtually Every Scientific Society Available (VICCAVESSA).

    Must be those government-paid scientists must be sharing all that dirty research money coming their way from the Communista Climate Warming Brigade of George Soros, Inc with the lowly meteorologists, who probably promised them a tour of the news studio. The fools!!
