Let no manufactured crisis go to waste because Senate Minority Grand Wizard Chuck Schumer (D-NY) isn’t. He went above and beyond this week in offering thoughts and prayers to those in the path of Hurricane Michael in hopes of advancing the left’s climate change agenda. Schumer droned on the senate floor that “if we did more on climate change, we’d have fewer of these hurricanes and other types of storms.” To make his case, Schumer cited a new UN report saying there’s a “12-year window to make far-reaching and unprecedented changes” to avert cataclysmic global catastrophe. The trouble is there’s virtually zero science to back up this assertion. Millennia before cars, coal, and carbon dioxide were concerns, hurricanes were ravaging coastlines. They will continue to do so climate accords or not.

Michael made landfall close to a Category 5 storm on Wednesday afternoon, ripping apart Florida panhandle buildings and severely damaging Tyndall Air Force Base.
Two deaths have been reported due to the hurricane, which inflicted heavy winds and rain across Georgia and the Carolinas this morning on its march up the coast. More than 900,000 homes and businesses were without power this morning.
“This year has seen huge a number of powerful storms and hurricanes buffet the Atlantic seaboard and the Gulf. Harvey, Irma, Maria, Florence, and now Michael have wrought severe damages.
