The massive typhoon Haiyan battered the Philippines on Friday, killing at least four people and causing devastating damage. Known as Yolanda in the Philippines, it has been called one of the most powerful storms ever recorded.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those in the storm’s path. But while some in the cult of global warming are praying for the people of the Philippines, they’re also praying they can score some sweet, sweet political points.
Never let a super typhoon go to waste!
with the strongest storm ever in history about to hit the Philippines, tell me again how theres no such thing as Global Warming.

TV personality Scott Nevins (unverified account) has appeared on a TruTV show called “World’s Dumbest ….” Just sayin’.
Dr. Heidi Cullen of Climate Central wins the "First Haiyan BS award" claiming "deep ocean heat" fed storm- SST say no http://t.co/hJuySOhoXd

If you live in the Philippines, you know climate change is a planetary emergency. Already. Not just a grim prospect for the future. #Haiyan

We are witnessing world's strongest storm ever hit the Philippines. Stark reminder of the need for swift and strong global climate action!

Philippines storm horrific. Pray for them – poor without defence. Remember this will become more frequent if we don't fight climate change.

"Super Typhoon Haiyan" God bless anyone effected by this. We must act on#globalwarming NOW.

One year after Superstorm Sandy, the Philippines faces worst storm in history. Wouldn't it be prudent to admit #globalwarming is real?

The science is settled: Y’all are douches for politicizing the devastation in the Philippines.
