Rush Limbaugh evacuates studio ahead of Hurricane Irma

Rush Limbaugh evacuates studio ahead of Hurricane Irma

But on the show Thursday, Limbaugh said he would be off the air for the next few days.

After CNN's Brian Stelter shared the news on Friday, noting that Mark Steyn was filling in for Limbaugh, Today meteorologist retorted, "Wait".

"There is a desire to advance this climate change agenda, and hurricanes are one of the fastest and best ways to do it", Limbaugh said. You have major, major industries and businesses which prosper during times of crisis and panic, such as a hurricane, which could destroy or greatly damage people's homes, and it could interrupt the flow of water and electricity.

"I'm seeing colors on the hurricane maps I've never seen before", said Maher, before interpreting them in his own way. Although he opened the segment by admitting he's not a meteorologist or anything of the sort, he explained to his listeners that he believes the constant media attention that Irma is getting is merely an effort to spread fear and panic that climate change is causing worse hurricanes.

"The TV stations begin reporting this and the panic begins to increase", Limbaugh said on his nationally-syndicated show. "They're all media", Limbaugh said, "They're all journalists".

Their task is made more hard when an influential figure like Limbaugh delivers a contradictory message.

So when they say "hurricane category 4, maximum sustained winds 155 miles", there is a place where that is happening, but it's not very large. You're not, alright? And we're not trying to scare people, we're not trying to hype this.

Like a lot of conservative media figures, Rush Limbaugh will find any reason he can to spread his anti-climate change ideology. It is not. This is life threatening. Roker was among the first who slammed Limbaugh over his comment on Hurricane Irma. But millions of people rely on him for their news and he misled them, with potentially lethal consequences. "They're going to go to their doctor".

This Tuesday, right-wing radio dumbass Rush Limbaugh engaged in an extended hurricane-related rant that has largely been described in the press as an argument that liberal scientists and media figures overhype and manipulate hurricane forecasts in order to advance their global warming agenda.

So did Rush decide to maybe stop claiming the concerns about Irma are overblown and part of the lib agenda? No.
