Why have there been more tornadoes than usual this year?

The death toll in Wednesday’s early-morning tornado outbreak in the Midwest and South has reached 12 – with an additional 150 people injured form Kansas to Kentucky. Mobile homes were ripped apart, roofs were torn off, and cars hurled through the air in states like Tennessee and Missouri where F-4 strength tornadoes were reported.

There have already been more tornadoes than usual this year – signaling that another freak, deadly tornado season may be just around the corner, following last year’s tornado season that killed more than 550 Americans – the second deadliest year on record. Climate Change is literally killing us, but Republican lawmakers continue to take money from big oil to ignore the obvious.
