    What are you trying to say? Climate has always been here, and has been changing.
    Wow someone tell averyharden. Or not as it’s a waste of time. :-)

    Your search “typhoon+phillipines” only gives 133 results.
    Search “typhoon+philippines” and you get a whole lot more – 2,744 results.

    That part of the world has a long reputation for destructive typhoons:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamikaze_%28typhoon%29

    The Kamikaze (神風, Japanese for divine wind), were two winds or storms that are said to have saved Japan from two Mongol fleets under Kublai Khan. These fleets attacked Japan in 1274 and again in 1281. Due to growth of Zen Buddhism among Samurai at the time, these were the first events where the typhoons were described as “divine wind” as much by their timing as by their force.

    http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq102-4.htm

    On 17 December 1944, the ships of Task Force 38, seven fleet and six light carriers, eight battleships, 15 cruisers, and about 50 destroyers were operating about 300 miles east of Luzon in the Philippine Sea. The carriers had just completed three days of heavy raids against Japanese airfields, suppressing enemy aircraft during the American amphibious operations against Mindoro in the Philippines. Although the sea had been becoming rougher all day, the nearby cyclonic disturbance gave relatively little warning of its approach. On 18 December, the small but violent typhoon overtook the Task Force while many of the ships were attempting to refuel. Many of the ships were caught near the center of the storm and buffeted by extreme seas and hurricane force winds. Three destroyers, USS Hull, USS Spence, and USS Monaghan, capsized and went down with practically all hands, while a cruiser, five aircraft carriers, and three destroyers suffered serious damage. Approximately 790 officers and men were lost or killed, with another 80 injured. Fires occurred in three carriers when planes broke loose in their hangars and some 146 planes on various ships were lost or damaged beyond economical repair by fires, impact damage, or by being swept overboard. This storm inflicted more damage on the Navy than any storm since the hurricane at Apia, Samoa in 1889. In the aftermath of this deadly storm, the Pacific Fleet established new weather stations in the Caroline Islands and, as they were secured, Manila, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. In addition, new weather central offices (for coordinating data) were established at Guam and Leyte.

    I’m surprised the alarmists aren’t calling them tycoons now, and using names like ‘Tycoon Koch’ and ‘Tycoon Rockefeller’.

  5. jsfiles says:

    Uhmm.. Yeah we do know that. On avergae, 20+ typhoons hit the Philippines every year. What’s different is that Haiyan is the strongest and the most destructive in recent history.
