Happy 10th Year With No Major Hurricanes! (sticky for day)

It’s been 10 years since the last major (category 3 or stronger) hurricane made landfall on the United States. Wilma, a category 3, made landfall on October 24th, 2005, in Cape Romano, Florida. Since then, not one major hurricane, a record that blows away the longest period of no major hurricanes in US history, which goes back to the Civil War.

Why is this important? Post 2005 hurricane season we were told that it would be the new normal. Hurricane strikes on the US immediately dropped. We were then told that, oh, well, you see, hurricanes would be fewer, but they would be stronger. Nope. Now we’re told that this will happen in the future.

And, no, you can’t deflect to Hurricane Patricia. Even NPR knows that it really had nothing to do with “climate change”. It virtually mirrored a storm from 1959, when CO2 was at a “safe” level of 315ppm.

    One can’t say whether or not hurricane Patricia was strengthened by global warming. Theory predicts that hurricanes and typhoons will be more intense because of the warming oceans. For Patricia, the ongoing El Nino almost certainly contributed to its intensification.

    This much is known – the land, oceans and atmosphere continue to warm from the CO2 we humans are adding to the atmosphere. What impacts will the warming planet have on human civilization and culture? Buckle up, we’ll find out.

    Since, according to Deniers, global warming stopped sometime in August 1998, why is 2015 so warm? When can we expect the average global temperature to drop to within the range of the entire Holocene?

    How much of the meager 1.4F increase since 1850 can be blamed on mankind’s CO2 ouput, Jeff?

    What it really shows is that the predictions of the climatologists/ climatastrophists have as much value as any other predictions: some might come true, and some might not. Thing is, the Chicken Littles of the climatastrophe world want us to base government policy, one which would make us all poorer, on predictions which may or may not come true.

    Will another major hurricane strike the United States? Almost certainly, though no one can know when or where or how badly.

    Teach,

    1.4F is not meager. That you type that shows your ignorance and/or dishonesty.

    How much of that is from human-generated greenhouse gases? Most of it. In fact, 2/3 of the warming has occurred since 1970!

    • jl says:

      You have zero proof that the alleged warming is “mostly from human-generated greenhouse gasses.” Definition of “mostly”? 51%? 60%? “1.4F is not meager.” You have no idea whether it’s meager or not because you have nothing to compare it to, using comparable data. So actually it shows your ignorance and/or dishonesty.

    The only honest thing we can say out of all this is that the climate astrologers made another spectacularly bad prediction. Surprise.

    “What impacts will the warming planet have on human civilization and culture?” J, did you stray from the hive? Because I thought you card-readers knew exactly what impacts the non-existent warming would cause. In fact we hear about a new one almost every day, though almost every one turns out to be wrong.
