Despite Grievous Losses, Dangerous Tornadoes Not a New Trend

Objectivity 3.5 | Credibility 4.0 | Relevance 4.7

While most Americans are grieving the devastating losses of the December 11, 2021 tornado that swept through Kentucky and neighboring states, many on the left are using the familiar tactic of blaming “climate change” for extreme weather.  The problem for this left-wing narrative, which often eclipses concern for victims, is that extreme weather events are not new to anyone who is familiar with our climate history.  On March 18, 1925, a tornado with a similar path and comparable devastation ripped through three U.S. states.  Deemed the “tri-state tornado,” it left 695 dead and over 2000 wounded in its wake.
