Hot Take: Climate Quirk Protecting US From Landfalling Hurricanes

If it wasn’t for this “quirk”, we’d be totes doomed from all the hurricanes created due to you driving a fossil fueled vehicle and daring to use electricity for Internet


A climatic quirk seems to be slightly shielding the U.S. coast during busy hurricane seasons, often weakening major storms just as they approach America’s beaches, a new study finds.

That could help explain why it’s been more than 11 years since a major hurricane with winds of more than 110 mph has hit the United States mainland.

Oh, and it seems we are “privileged”, too, while other nations get crushed!

“It’s a lucky byproduct for the United States coast,” Kossin said. “It’s really unfortunate that we’re the only ones that seem to be benefiting from this situation.”

Surprisingly, uber-Warmist Seth Borenstein, the article writer, fails to mention ‘climate change.’ But, you know this is a Narrative setter, meant to lead to more Excusemaking for the dearth of hurricanes making landfall on the US coast despite all the prognostications of doom from the Cult of Climastrology. The American Interest notes what the NY Times has to say about this study

When climatic conditions favor a lot of hurricane activity, they also create a buffer zone that weakens the storms as they approach the coastal United States.

    Georgia Tech’s Judith Curry called it solid research

    As you know Dr. Curry is a so-called ‘skeptic’. Other climate scientists are not so sure.

    The Deniers’ problem with this research is that it peels off the “no hurricane landfall” bumper sticker. But who are we kidding, Deniers will bury this evidence as they always do, LOL.

    Beyond the quirk of cold surface waters, global warming (we are in a warm phase) reduces the temperature difference between the Equator and the Poles. This temperature difference is what drives oceanic and atmospheric circulation, and a small difference (like now) reduces the intensity of those flows, giving us fewer violent storms, including fewer hurricanes and tornados.
