We’d guess the Los Angeles Times covers the weather, but at this point we’d look to just about any other source to predict tomorrow’s temperature. This gem comes courtesy of the Times editorial board.

This tweet is more predictable than hurricanes. https://t.co/QrxfbnYHkk

If Trump himself were to consult the experts — such as, you know, climate scientists — he would learn that global warming is real. He’d also learn that although warming did not cause Hurricane Harvey, it certainly makes such storms stronger, more unpredictable and quicker to intensify. Experts — there’s that word again — say that warmer air temperatures mean more evaporation of moisture from the seas to the skies, and thus more rainfall from storms.
Whoa, hold up — “it certainly makes such storms stronger, more unpredictable and quicker to intensify”? What happened to “more often”? Didn’t expert climate scientists — such as, you know, Al Gore — predict that hurricanes would greatly increase in frequency too?
One hurricane proves climate change is a threat that will kill us all, but a 12-year gap since the last major one hit the US means nothing. https://t.co/gth0oN3Z6G

And how do the “climate experts” on the Times editorial board account for even stronger and more unpredictable storms that occurred before Al Gore completed work on his 10,000-square-foot estate outside of Nashville?

Because hurricanes have absolutely zero to do with hurricane season. 🙄 https://t.co/0mFaou1kQA

Yeah. Climate changes. It's called seasons.
In the south this is Hurricane Season. Nothing new. https://t.co/dFmIbwKBpw

Man cannot control the weather. You can keep believing it, and you'll be stressing about something you cannot change. https://t.co/plu5tgUzFl

The only way your plan to fight climate change would help in future hurricanes is that sod huts are relatively easy to rebuild. https://t.co/3fdCtfCjhv
