Bette Midler says increase in carbon dioxide emissions is causing violent storms


This tweet continued a theme Midler began last night.

This Earth is the only one we will ever have or love or tend for our children.There may be an earth where reality doesn’t matter….

But it isn’t this one.Reality does matter. 90 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every day has a consequence. Wesaw it yesterday.

But maybe it’s not quite so simple?

@bettemidler more evaporation = more cloud cover = more light reflected = less heat reaching surface = less evaporation.

@bettemidler It’s complicated.…

We looking forward to hearing “not a scientist” Bette’s thoughts about the article linked by @mtpollack, particularly her “common sense” responses to the points made about water vapor measurements from radiosondes, tropospheric wind shear causing changes in precipitation efficiency, and the missing tropospheric “hot spot” in satellite temperature trends.
