Rush Limbaugh will be evacuating South Florida, just days after the popular conservative radio host claimed that Hurricane Irma would not hit the United States and that scientists and the liberal media were hyping up the hurricane as proof of their global warming "lie". Make sure you got batteries. "So the media benefits with the panic with increased eyeballs, and the retailers benefit from the panic with increased sales, and the TV companies benefit because they're getting advertising dollars from the businesses that are seeing all this attention from customers". He also suggested that storm warnings were the product of "people in all of these government areas who believe man is causing climate change, and they're hellbent on proving it, they're hellbent on demonstrating it, they're hellbent on persuading people of it". They just plug into some lake or some tap and fill up some water, put a label on it, put it in grocery store and sell it for more than gasoline costs, in many cases. And so, Limbaugh has had to grab his figurative - although for all we know he actually has one - tinfoil hat and move to safer ground. "And the effects in Florida, depending on where, are gonna be damaging", Limbaugh said on his radio show on Thursday.

But if, if they are going to approach a hit on the USA, you will note that early tracks always have them impacting a major population center.
