It would be a significant event if ONE of these climate systems existed, but, this occured in multiples. To measure the severity of the climate we are now witnessing, is to realize not just 'the number' of tornadoes, but, the size and vorticity as realize how gigantic this dynamic actually is. One tornado takes a great deal of 'energy' to sustain a short duration with a narrow funnel cloud or vortex, but, to realize the enormity of the actually tornadoes, the size of the climate system supporting each and every one of them and then to realize they are occuring in multiples is to realize the incredible heat these systems are now existing within.
The 'physics' of this single EVENT is off the scale. For any one media person to sit in a studio and mimize the dangers of the Climate Crisis is more than irresponsible, they contibute to the deaths, damage and impact of on the economy.
