E&E Legal Steve Milloy Pushes Back Against Biden and Complicit Corporate Media’s Fake Narrative That Recent Tornadoes in the Midwest and South are the Result of Climate Change
“Rules for Radicals” author and 1960s agitator Saul Alinksy famously said, “never let a crisis go to waste.” A hero to Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and many other modern Leftists, it’s not surprising that Alinsky’s strategy is now front in center in pushing an extreme agenda by the Biden Administration, many in the House and Senate, and most powerfully, a corporate media structure determined to provide non-stop scare coverage.
Severe weather events are a favorite “go-to” these days to push the “sky is falling” climate change agenda. The recent tragic tornadoes that brought death and destruction to many in the Midwest and South are just the latest examples of not letting “a crisis go to waste.”
E&E Legal Senior Policy Fellow and Junkscience.com Founder Steve Milloy took to Twitter and the media this week to interject some rational scientific discourse into the outrageous hysteria spewed by the Left. Following are some examples of Milloy’s media appearances.

In the wake of a devastating and deadly tornado outbreak in Kentucky and a handful of other states, Democrats and mainstream media figures have returned to their old trick of standing atop life-altering tragedy to advance their partisan political agenda.
As Rebecca reported, President Biden was asked about the storms and — despite admitting he couldn’t give “a quantitative read” on what role climate change may have played — said “the fact is that we all know everything is more intense when the climate is warming — everything. And, obviously, it has some impact here,” he added. Except it’s not obvious and it’s not a settled fact.
As an Associated Press report explained, “Attributing a specific storm like Friday’s to the effects of climate change remains very challenging” because “Less than 10% of severe thunderstorms produce tornadoes, which makes drawing conclusions about climate change and the processes leading up to them tricky,” according to the National Severe Storms Laboratory’s Harold Brooks…
Steve Milloy brought receipts in a Twitter thread to make a similar point: while tragic, this weekend’s tornado outbreak is not unprecedented, nor is there a definitive or provable link between climate change or global warming and tornado frequency.

Daily Caller: Media, Liberals Quick To Blame Deadly Tornadoes On Climate Change
by Thomas Catenacci, Energy & Environment Reporter
The Daily Caller, December 13, 2021
- “The first thing the alarmists think of is, ‘how can we use this to advance our agenda?’” Steve Milloy, a former member of the Trump transition team, told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “That’s what they do nowadays. Every bad piece of bad weather is global warming.”
Media outlets and liberals, including elected Democrats, were quick to blame climate change for the deadly tornadoes that ripped through the Midwest over the weekend.
President Joe Biden announced that he would ask the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct an investigation into the role climate change played in the storms that caused fatalities in Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas and Tennessee on Friday night. The total death toll from the tornadoes could surpass 100 after emergency responders clear the debris, according to Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear who called the storm the worst in state history.
“All that I know is that the intensity of the weather across the board has some impact as a consequence of the warming of the planet and the climate change,” Biden told reporters on Saturday.
