Hardly an hour goes by without some press release about the connection of CO2 and extreme weather.
Clearly it isn’t happening with violent tornadoes, which peaked during the ice age scare of the 1970s.
It also isn’t happening with hurricanes (blue line below) or major hurricanes (red line below.) Both of them peaked during the 1950s.
A direct comparison of hurricanes vs. CO2 shows that they peaked around 300 ppm.
No evidence of a CO2 footprint for the most intense hurricanes.
The hottest weather ever recorded in North America occurred almost a century ago.
It isn’t heat. It isn’t tornadoes. It isn’t hurricanes. What is it?
