Disasters in US: An extreme and exhausting year
By SETH BORENSTEIN, AP Science Writer – 16 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — Nature is pummeling the United States this year with extremes.
Unprecedented triple-digit heat and devastating drought. Deadly tornadoes leveling towns. Massive rivers overflowing. A billion-dollar blizzard. And now, unusual hurricane-caused flooding in Vermont.
Borenstein has no idea what he is talking about.
In June, 1934 the entire country had triple digit heat. We didn’t come anywhere close to that this summer.
Severe drought in 1934 covered 80% of the country, compared with 25% in 2011
Flooding in 1927 was worse. Are these reporters too lazy or too dumb to do any research?
