We keep being told by climate alarmists that global warming is responsible for more intensive rainfall, the theory being that a warmer atmosphere can hold more moisture.
Funny then that when we look at rainfall records across the US for all sorts of different timescales, we find none at all since 1981.
Take particular note of the four records in Texas:
- Galveston 1871 – 3.95” in 15 minutes
- Woodward Ranch 1935 – 15.0” in 2 hours
- Thrall 1921 – 36.4” in 18 hours
- Alvin 1979 – 43” in 24 hours
Storm Harvey never got anywhere near these sort of totals.
And we find a very similar picture when we review global records, with the most recent record being as long ago as 1980.
