|Last month or so, there have been literally hundreds of tornadoes so far this year. The folks in the mid-western states aren't getting much of a break from severe weather this year. Long, brutal winter, heavy snow, flooding. Now, severe thunderstorms, and tornadoes. Some how, the northern weather, and next year's presidential election sort of got merged in my brain. Anyway, I was looking for a map, that showed where all those tornadoes touch down, and got to wondering if the states hit the hardest, are 'Green' states, leaning way too far left. Haven't found the sort of map I was looking for just yet, will look some more tomorrow. Shouldn't be hard to find the 2016 election results map, remember seeing several.|

|Well, it IS called 'Tornado Alley' for a reason.|
Brutal winters are rather normal for the northern section.
Floods are rather normal for the southern section, since they are on the lower ranges of some major rivers and it's pretty flat there.
Pretty soon they'll start getting their summer heat waves.
Weather in the plains is normally rather harsh. Yet people still live there.
Are you suggesting God is punishing people for the way they vote??

Perhaps people in Tornado Alley are testing God. You know, pushing the envelope by calling one of His favorite life-essential compounds "poison" and "pollution." They are intentionally taunting and name-calling, trying to elicit a response.
They should know not to expect a reaction, which is why the weather is always within normal parameters.

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist
|I don't know why I thought there might be some connection. Found a map I liked, but couldn't pull a copy out of the website, with a right click anyway, might resort to other trickery, if I can't find a similar, easy to grab version. I hate the way 'news' sites protect content like that, they carry a lot of advertisements too, so it's not great just linking to the page. I wanted to overlay the tornado map over the election map... Mostly, it's maybe 8 states that get the worst of it, might need to expand past the recent outbreak.|
I guess there are a lot of ways to interpret it. There's the 'power of prayer', where a lot of these 'green' left-leaners are all chanting the same thing, and are getting an answer.
Power of belief, lot of people believe the carbon god is going to punish them soon, because the believe CO2 is doing bad things, yet do nothing, except live their lives, as they should, just feel guilty about it (thank's Al Gore). Careful of what you wish for...
Maybe it's just that the greeners, believe in the Carbon god so strongly, because they live in hostile environments, that get a lot of the strong weather events, prophesied. They constantly hear the sermon on the left-media, and look out the window, hard to disagree. Bad weather really sucks, specially when you don't hardly get a break from something horrible, barely enough to time to fix the damage, clean up the mess.

Rather a self fulfilling answer. No god is necessary, not even a carbon god.
A self fulfilling belief as well. No god is necessary. Not even the Holy Son Al Gore is necessary.
The mess is cleaned up. These storms are normal. They are also not covering eight States at once. You live in Florida and only hear about this stuff in the biased news media.
