Joe Bastardi: Hurricanes happen, whether they are politically exploited by climate change activists or not

Wednesday 04:14 GMT

Using hurricanes as a political tool to advance an agenda, however, does nothing to expand or enhance this, or the safety net for our nation.

When it comes to hurricanes and the hysteria that the climate change purveyors are trying to encourage, I believe that presenting the other side of the issue will allow you to at least be able to question the ideas that are being pushed on you. Hurricane research and forecasting methods need to be a major initiative for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Tuesday 09:55 GMT

While over half the nation’s housing stock is located in the suburbs, most of these communities cannot compete with major cities on house-price increases.

Throughout most of the housing industry’s recovery from the Great Recession, housing markets in urban areas have outpaced those in the suburbs and exurbs. List prices for homes in major cities have skyrocketed and, thanks to the tight supply of homes available for sale, properties have in recent years flown off the market.
