Powerful storms like the ones that tore through parts of the central United States this weekend are the "new normal" in an era of climate change, the top federal emergency management official said on Sunday. Deanne Criswell, the FEMA administrator, said her agency was prepared to bolster resilience in the face of more severe weather. "This is going to be our new normal," Criswell told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." "The effects we are seeing of climate change are the crisis of our generation," Criswell said. "We're taking a lot of efforts at FEMA to work with communities to help reduce the impacts that we're seeing

Comments:

The punchline of any statement made by any government official is that they need more taxpayer money and more power to do whatever it is that they do, and they need it right now.

The 1939 classic movie - - "The Wizard Of Oz" - - has been permanently banned by the Despicable Joe administration. They don't want their lo-fo voters to know - - that there were tornados 82 years ago. It's all due to Gullible Warming - - don't you know.

It seems that they have always had powerful tornados along the part of the USA known as “tornado alley”. That’s why that area of the USA is known as “tornado alley”! So take anything that the federal government “swamp” rats say regarding tornados with a grain of salt. As their motive behind what they usually say is designed to suck more money out of Congress to build more bureaucratic “Ivory Towers” which means more high level bureaucratic positions and hopefully one for them. To do that successfully in DC all issues must first be politicized.

So much for fossil fuels causing climate change issues. We were hiding under our beds for a year and a half and not burning gasoline, yet, we had tornadoes, caused by climate change, huh? When I took science classes a million years ago, it was the sun and the rotation of the earth that affected the climate.

Friday my area tied a high temperature record and local weather talking heads were talking climate change. The record which was tied was in 1938. CO2 levels in 1938 were around 311 ppm. There were less than 2.5 billion on the planet and there were no SUVs What could have caused such a high temp? It is a mystery

What utter BS. There have been monstrous tornadoes in years past...in Washington, DC in 1814 during the war of 1812, a tornado killed a bunch of British soldiers and was a turning point in the war. In 1840 a tornado struck Natchez and killed over 300 people. Look back over our history and there were several massive outbreaks that killed scores of people. Must have been all those SUVs people were driving back then. What galls me is that these climate whores know this. They also know most people aren't aware of it and the media will not call them out. This Criswell person is despicable.

I looked up Deanne Criswell in Wikipedia...and found nothing in her pedigree that would qualify her to "testify" as an expert on anything related to the relative frequency of tornados being affected by anthropogenic climate change...even if such things were an actual thing. Setting up such a presumptuous and arrogant libtard to testify on subjects of which she cannot possibly know enough to matter makes about as much sense as electing Joe "Xiden" Biden to be POTUS...oh, wait, we already did that.

Baloney. Storms are to old normal, and have been all my life and LONG before I was born. More densely populated areas in tornado country means more deaths from the same number and size of tornadoes.....same as more folks living on the SE coasts causes more hurricane damage and deaths -- from the same size and number of storms. It's weather, it has been around longer than humans have walked this Earth.

President Biden's Build Back Better bill contains provisions to make child care more affordable, but could have the opposite effect for middle class families, according to a new study. 'The new program would act like a $20,000 to $30,000 annual tax on middle-income families,' Casey Mulligan, economics professor at University of Chicago and Trump-era economic adviser writes in a piece on the study for the Wall Street Journal. Mulligan estimates that by removing financial incentives to offer low-cost care and increasing regulations, the cost of daycare for a middle families could surge 102 to 122 percent.

The Pentagon said Monday that no action would be taken against military personnel involved in the botched drone strike that killed 10 civilians in Kabul as American forces withdrew in August. Seven children were among the dead when a Hellfire missile hit a saloon car mistakenly identified as being packed with explosives in the Afghan capital. U.S. nerves were on edge three days after an ISIS-K suicide bomber killed 170 Afghans and 13 American service members at Hamid Karzai International Airport. At a briefing, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said senior commanders had made recommendations to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin - none of which included holding any officers accountable.

Thousands of migrants clashed with Mexican police Sunday as they approached Mexico City on their northward trek through the Central American country. Approximately 550 police officers were deployed to lead the migrants through the Mexican capital, government officials told BBC News. The migrants were planning to walk to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a well-known pilgrimage site in the city. However, police reportedly blocked the group, telling them they should spend the night at a hostel before moving on. Authorities alleged the migrants attacked first, saying they threw stones and grabbed police shields. Some migrants claimed they felt threatened after being surrounded by the riot gear-clad officers

Two Covid jabs should still slash the risk of dying from Omicron by up to 84 per cent but a booster is twice as good at preventing someone from falling ill, according to official estimates. SAGE modelling published over the weekend worked off the assumption that two Pfizer doses give 83.7 per cent protection against hospitalisation and death from the highly-evolved strain. A two-dose course of AstraZeneca's vaccine was estimated to reduce the risk of severe disease from Omicron by 77.1 per cent. However, both vaccine brands were assumed to wane within three to six months.(Snip)The estimates were presented in modelling by the London School of Hygiene

Pfizer and AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccines are not as effective in fighting off the Omicron variant compared to other strains, according to a new study published Monday. Researchers from the University of Oxford said in the pre-print paper that they had discovered a “substantial fall” in neutralizing antibodies when the Omicron variant was introduced to blood samples 28 days after participants received their second dose of either Pfizer or AstraZeneca’s vaccine. The study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, discovered that some of the participants “failed to neutralize [the virus] at all.” “This will likely lead to increased breakthrough infections in previously infected or double vaccinated individuals,

Dozens of killers, rapists and paedophiles released from prison have been given second life sentences for further offences. Over the past decade 129 criminals who were jailed for life have been handed the same sentence again. The figures will reignite the row over the role of the Parole Board following controversies over Black Cab rapist John Worboys and child-killer Colin Pitchfork. The data, disclosed by the Ministry of Justice under freedom of information laws, shows that 17 criminals were given a second life sentence in 2019.
