CBS News: Climate Change Worsens Air Turbulence
Source: A Flight Attendant
Following an incident of severe turbulence aboard a flight from Phoenix to Hawaii in which 36 people were hurt, some media outlets published misleading reports claiming that turbulence is now more dangerous because of climate change.
Yahoo News issued an article with the headline ‘How climate change may have contributed to Hawaiian Airlines’ dramatic turbulence‘, and CBS News produced a piece claiming climate change has made turbulence more deadly.
Airplane turbulence might be getting more common — a union representing flight attendants is warning — thanks to climate change. https://t.co/fIBiKQl1cK

As detailed in the above report, the source for articles was one Taylor Garland, spokesperson for the Association of Flight Attendants, who claimed turbulence caused by severe weather is going to become more common due to climate change.
There is, of course, no actual data to support that statement… from a flight attendant.
You are not a serious news source if you push things like this.

With a headline like this, your legitimacy as a real news network is dead.

So now we have to pay more taxes to have less turbulence? Got it

So airplanes are making the sky unsafe for airplanes due to the climate change they are contributing to?

That’s called weather.

It was down to “thanks to the unvaccinated,” “thanks to climate change,” or “thanks to white supremacy.”

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
