Say, What’s The Hotcoldwetdry-Hurricane Connection?

Hurricane season is upon us, and, of course, virtually every storm will be either blamed or linked to ‘climate change’. Or both. Because that’s what Warmists do. Tropical systems have been happening long before mankind started the Industrial Revolution and found fossil fuels. Heck, long before mankind. Despite being utterly wrong in their prognostications, Warmists will continue their duckspeak

What’s the hurricane-climate change connection?

As hurricane season kicks off along the Atlantic coast (June 1 to November 30), it’s a good time to think about the connection between hurricanes and climate change.

As the climate warms, hurricanes are projected to get stronger and wetter. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the IPCC modeling, we are likely to experience an increase in hurricane storm intensity, with a doubling of category 4 and 5 hurricanes over the course of the 21st century, while at the same time a decrease in frequency of category 1 to 3 storms. It is projected that storm intensity will increase 2 percent – 11 percent and there will substantially higher rainfall rates than present-day hurricanes—perhaps 10 percent-15 percent more rainfall within 100 km of the storm center. Overall, it is projected that hurricane damages will increase by 30 percent by 2100, without even taking into account future sea level rise.

Let’s go back in time, shall we? After the big season of 2005, the prognostication was that 2005 would be the “new normal.” Almost immediately, landfalling hurricanes dried up. And the US has only been hit by 3 named storms since, of which two could be argued weren’t even hurricanes at landfall.

But, Warmists went on to prognosticate that while hurricanes would be fewer, they would be bigger and more powerful. But, bigger hurricanes dried up. The last major hurricane to make landfall on the continental US was Wilma in October 2005.

So, then they started saying that ‘climate change’ was steering tropical systems away from the US and Caribbean, and reducing their power and formation.

Now we’re on to “bigger and wetter”. Way in the future. When no one will remember the prognostication. And no one can actually prove it.

Clearly, the stakes are high for the Atlantic coast when it comes to the impacts of climate change. As we prepare for yet another hurricane season with basic emergency preparedness, we should also press for meaningful action on climate change to minimize future catastrophe. When the next big hurricane strikes, let’s not have to wish we would have acted on climate change sooner.

Did ‘climate change’ have anything to do with the great Galveston hurricane of 1900? Hurricane Camille happened during cooling in 1969. Warmists will never give up a good meme, good duckspeak, no matter how unscientific it is

    No Teach landfalling hurricanes did not fry up. they hit other countries. Simply because a hurricane doesn’t hit the country where Teach happens to live does not make it nonexistent.
    Named storms that do not actually hit the coast as a hurricane can and do cause immense damage, just as that storm Sandy (much hyped?) did.
    Now also Teach we are already being hit with our third named storm of the season Colin, you seem to be a bit confused about named storms and hurricanes
    Teach more and more Americans are seeing through the “evidence”of paid shills like the Heartland Institute and are aware that man is changing his environment and climate.

    only 10% of Americans say it will never happen

    Live your Twitter contest, Teach. Hilarious.

    And LOL at John’s desperate attempt at a retort that addresses none of the facts. Tropical storms are not rising in intensity or quantity worldwide. And he somehow defends American warmists who insisted that America will be devastated by more storms, even though the opposite happened, by saying storms happened elsewhere? That’s just Looney Toons.

    Hi John,

    Would you please kindly show me the stats demonstrating where the increased hurricane activity has ended up?

    I ask with respect.
