There are other more pressing issues than national politics. Ask the residents of Maui.

If you believe the progressive communist democrats can keep this nation militarily safe and secure or respond quickly to natural disasters, you will be screwed.

Just think how taxes and public policies will mitigate hurricanes they falsely claim are attributable to global warming.

Hurricane Hilary is not a product of climate change but an El Niño climate pattern …

El Niño is a climate pattern that describes the unusual warming of surface waters in the eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean. El Niño arrived in June and is anticipated to continue through the Northern Hemisphere winter (with a greater than 95% chance through December 2023 -February 2024).

Warm sea surface temperatures are a key influence on hurricanes, so El Niño events favors increased hurricane activity in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean and tend to suppress Atlantic hurricane activity.

Additionally, during El Niño events, wind patterns in the tropical Atlantic tend to change, creating stronger upper-level winds or wind shear, the change in wind speed and direction with altitude. Higher wind shear can disrupt the development and intensification of hurricanes, making it more difficult for them to form and strengthen.

Now ask how many climate scientists understand El Niño-La Niña events well enough to incorporate them into climate models. Or even predict their occurrence. Answer: none!

The two primary reasons the U.S. West Coast doesn't see many hurricanes are the cold ocean temperatures and currents, plus the direction of the trade winds. Hurricanes need ocean temperatures to be warmer than 79 degrees. Hilary is currently sitting in 85-degree water and will remain in those warm waters through today. As Hilary moves closer to Baja California, ocean temperatures will quickly cool into the 70s and eventually the 60s along the California coast, where its energy continues to dissipate.

Bottom line…

Watch closely for the Rahm Emanuel effect of "never letting a crisis go to waste." It suggests that during times of crisis or upheaval, there are opportunities for politicians to advance their agendas and implement significant changes that might not be possible during more stable times. It implies that crises create a sense of urgency and public willingness to accept changes or reforms they might resist in normal circumstances.

Observe those handling the government’s response to natural disasters at the local, state, and federal levels. See which political hacks are chosen for their political connections or academic credentials rather than their experience and competence. Demand their replacement immediately.

Take care of yourself, your family, and your neighbors.
