In the “because tornadoes never happened in Texas before” file we find a story featuring CNN meteorologist Alexandra Steele informing viewers that the Dallas-Fort Worth area tornadoes were definitely caused by climate change:

Steele, formerly of The Weather Channel, also predicted that more extreme weather is on its way.

“It really is [such a strange spring],” Steele said. “That’s kind of the climate change we are seeing. You know, extremes are kind of ruling the roost and really what we are seeing, more become the norm.”

“CNN Newsroom” host Carol Costello said it made her “afraid” about what is in store for next spring.

“It might be unnaturally cold,” said Costello. Steele agreed that future weather would be less predictable.

“This global warming is really kind of a misnomer,” Steele said. “It’s global climate change. So the colds are colder and warms are warmer and severe is more severe.”

And this whole time I thought Texas got tornadoes because a good portion of the state is in a region called “tornado alley”:

Soon that area will be formally re-named “climate change alley”:

In President Obama’s speech to the Associated Press yesterday (never too soon to issue marching orders), he claimed the Paul Ryan budget proposal would make weather forecasting less accurate. Since all forecasts seem to be “doom and gloom due to climate change” there really aren’t a lot of variables in mainstream media weather reporting: Weather is on the way, and whatever happens is because of climate change — and if we get it wrong it’s because climate change has made forecasting more difficult.
