One notices a growing superstition about anthropogenic global warming (AGW) that includes expressions of alarm about the many men who do not accept that the recent hurricanes making landfall in America are undeniable proof of AGW (now, called climate change).
But that is to be expected, considering the poor quality of reporting on the question of hurricanes and whether or not such hurricanes happen more frequently than they did in the past owing to putative AGW.
Cui bono? Well, the collectivists are delighted to fear-monger men, as that is conducive to getting them to accept a larger and even more intrusive central state, but is it true that we poor Floridians are experiencing more hurricanes/cyclones that at any time in the past?
No. Men can type “1886 Atlantic hurricane season” into their browser and teach their own selves about the facts. Now, admittedly, such an action is likely to arm the inquisitive man against the superstition that the state is trying to seed in the souls of free men about AGW. But, one can always remind their own selves of the words of King David, who noted that there existed only a single step between he and death, and so one can continue to fear what he cannot control — if that makes him feel important.
