You’ll recall that I mentioned before what tornadoes have been up to, but in case you can’t remember, although the data appear to show a rise, this is an artifact of improving detection.

I would like to express my condolences to the victims of these severe weather events. And I would like to say that I think that those who would use these events for political purposes are a disgrace. Shame on you, Senator. You are climatological not smarter than a fifth grader.
