Michael Bastasch writes at the Daily Caller:
Does University of St. Thomas thermal sciences professor John Abraham actually believe Florida Panhandle residents deserved to get hit by a catastrophic hurricane for electing "climate deniers?"
"Victims of Hurricane Michael voted for climate deniers," reads the headline an article by Abraham, published in The Guardian Thursday.
"Elections have consequences. Denying science has consequences. And we are reaping what we sow," the subhead reads.
"Despite the lack of science to support for his case, Abraham blames Michael's intensity on man-made global warming, leading to his subsequent claim that southern voters brought this upon themselves by voting Republicans into office," Bastasch states.
"The United Nation's latest climate report, released Sunday, found there's little to no evidence global warming is making hurricanes more extreme or intense," Bastasch writes.
"Numerous studies towards and beyond AR5 have reported a decreasing trend in the global number of tropical cyclones and/or the globally accumulated cyclonic energy," the most recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found, according to the Daily Caller.
