Tyler O’Neill over at PJM the other day:

On Friday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) said that hurricanes, superstorms, and tornadoes did not occur before climate change. In the same breath, he said that anyone who questions the left’s climate-alarmist hysteria is “just delusional.” He may want to check in a mirror.

After he finished berating President Donald Trump in an interview with MSNBC, Cuomo turned to his latest attempt to enforce climate change orthodoxy.

“You know, anyone who questions extreme weather and climate change is just delusional at this point,” Cuomo said. “We have seen in the State of New York what everyone is seeing. We see these weather patterns that we never had before. We didn’t have hurricanes, we didn’t have superstorms, we didn’t have tornadoes.”

Tyler gets into a fairly detailed rebuttal of Cuomo on the matter and concludes:

Unless the Iroquois and their ancestors were secretly burning fossil fuels — and cleverly erased the evidence they did so — Cuomo’s statement about there having been no hurricanes and superstorms in New York prior to climate change is flat-out wrong. A simple Google search would have set him straight.

Ehhh… I doubt it.

He would simply discount the evidence in front of him, because it doesn’t match with his predetermined politically based wet dream.

An interesting parallel would be the Democrats and their claims of quid pro quo with the president of the Ukraine and Donald Trump. The entire world has free access to the contents of that conversation in the transcript. It was unedited. Yet, the Democrats continue to claim that there was something in that conversation that was totally illegal and moral and that Donald Trump deserves to be impeached because of it. We’re supposed to believe them and that the content of the actual conversation.

I submit that in much the same way, Mario Cuomo ignores the facts in front of him and sticks to the script, because he knows darn well that his power comes from the common misconception that the emperor has beautiful new clothes.

That may well work with the denizens of NBC and its various forms and their viewers. But the numbers of people that adhere to this climate change religion are falling rapidly which is why the left is in such a panic recently. (And why the viewership numbers for MSNBC have been in the toilet these last several years.)
