ICYMI: MSNBC Host Said We Shouldn’t Call It Hurricane Season Because We Get Them All Year, or Something

Well, we know that MSNBC is only meant to keep the blood pressures of liberals at healthy levels. Therefore, maybe they should just stick to that instead of trying to dabble in weather reporting. Last week, MSNBC host Katy Tur was interviewing Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards about how his state was preparing, as Hurricane Harvey was slamming into the Gulf Coast. Harvey dumped 11 trillion gallons of water, flooding large parts of the Houston-area before turning towards Louisiana. Tur wondered if we should still have a hurricane season since we get these storms in all seasons (via Free Beacon):


MSNBC host Katy Tur questioned Tuesday whether "hurricane season" exists anymore, claiming that "we see these things in all seasons" during coverage of the catastrophic flooding in Houston, Texas.

Interviewing Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D.) about the potential impact of Hurricane Harvey on his state, Tur asked him about his preparedness for future storms.

"Governor, we're just in August. Hurricane season, if you want to say there is a hurricane season any longer because we see these things in all seasons, lasts for a couple more months," Tur said ruefully. "This is a big one. Are you ready if there is going to be another one? Can you handle this?"

The National Ocean Service states that 97 percent of tropical cyclones form in this time period.

As the Free Beacon noted, this was an obvious reference to global warming. Harvey is the first major hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. since 2005. In 2013, we had the calmest Hurricane season in 30 years. So, these aren’t seasons with ever increasingly intensity, they just come and go. Some seasons are intense and some are not. It’s the wonder of nature.
