Emergency crews work the scene of a deadly lightning strike in D.C. / IMAGE: ABC News (Australia) via YouTube ( Mark Pellin , Headline USA ) Following in the well-worn path of leftists trampling over tragedies and never letting a crisis go to waste , climate alarmists have seized on a deadly D.C. natural disaster to push their radical global-warming agenda.
Less than a day after three people were killed and one left in critical condition when a lightning strike on Thursday hit a square near the White House, climate-change scientists looking to bolster their forecasts of doom shamelessly pounced on the tragedy.
Despite what has for decades been a traditionally hot August in the nation’s Capitol, climate cult acolytes said the freak lightning strike indicated that hotter temperatures caused by global warming will produce more deadly bolts across the country.
“The hot, humid conditions in Washington, D.C., on Thursday were primed for electricity,” according to Reuters.
Two main components of lightning’s charged particles are more air moisture and upward drafts that increased temperatures produce to trigger more strikes because, global warming.
Scientists for proof reached for a nearly decade-old study from the journal Science that warned “that the number of lightning strikes could increase by 50% in this century in the United States, with each 1 C (1.8 F) of warming translating into a 12% rise in the number of lightning strikes,” reported Reuters.
Climate alarmists , of course, don’t need to rely on old studies and thunderstorms to produce a tragedy that they can use to shape into their preferred global-warming narrative.
Fueled by climate change, hotter temperatures are producing obese, woefully unfit and disturbingly unhealthy children, according to a new study from an “environmental exercise physiologist at Slovenia’s University of Ljubljana,” reported The Hill .Because kids won’t exercise when it’s hot outside, […]

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
