Climate Change, Tornadoes and Junk Science at Michigan State!

“If the climatologists are right about the continuing effects of climate change,” said Mark Skidmore, MSU economics professor and co-author of the study,…”

“Continuing effects of climate change”. Ummm, like the real-world fact that as CO2 increases, the frequency and strength of tornadoes is decreasing?!

Didn’t read that bit in their junk-science study. 🤔

Today’s junk science comes from Michigan State University:

Tornadoes and mobile homes don’t mix to begin with, but throw in the volatility of climate change and the potential for massive property damage and deaths is even higher in coming decades, indicates a new study by Michigan State University researchers.

The number of mobile homes in the United States has risen dramatically in the past 60 years, to about 9 million currently. Meanwhile, the U.S. is the most tornado-prone country in the world, with an average of 1,200 twisters per year, and scientists predict climate change will continue fuelling more unstable weather events including tornadoes.

The annual impact of tornadoes is expected to increase threefold over the next few decades due to the “twin forces of increased climate variability and growth in the human-built environment,” according to the study, which is published online in the journal…
