Yep...another disaster prediction issued by warming alarmists. Throw it on the pile. Except this one gives no specific date or date range; it's just that we're 'overdue,' especially due to 'rising atmospheric temperatures.' (Which aren't rising, by the way...) It's all a bunch of bunk.
Here's one thing I will guarantee you: We will ALWAYS have unusual weather events, because weather is unpredictable and REAL climate change is unstoppable (and NOT caused by capitalism). This is why North Africa is now a desert (normal, cyclical climate change on the Earth). Almanacs and historical accounts have long recorded unusual, record-breaking weather and climate events. That will continue. Even if we enacted every stupid global warming solution that liberals have dreamed up, the weather and climate will still behave in an oblivious fashion. We're mere gnats on this Great Earth.
It sounds like the plot of an apocalyptic action movie, but scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey warned federal and state emergency officials that California's geological history shows such "superstorms" have happened in the past, and should be added to the long list of natural disasters to worry about in the Golden State.
The threat of a cataclysmic California storm has been dormant for the past 150 years. Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt told the New York Times that a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley was inundated from 1861-62. The floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco, and Governor Leland Stanford had to take a rowboat to his own inauguration, the report notes. Even larger storms happened in past centuries, over the dates 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605, according to geological evidence.
The risk is gathering momentum now, scientists say, due to rising temperatures in the atmosphere, which has generally made weather patterns more volatile.
