The worst spring for tornadoes was right before Nixon resigned.

    obviously tornadoes and hurricanes didn’t get the memo……….

    • suyts says:

      40 years of data flying in the face of the CAGW theory.

      We shouldn’t forget Dr. Ryan Maue’s graphic either.

      Ouch, the whole theory down the crapper.

      • P.J. says:

        In his presnetations, Christopher Monckton has hurricane and tornado graphs that go back even further, showing the same thing – a flat trend.

  2. Jimbo says:

    All this in the face of even better monitoring. It’s worse than we thought.

    Now the warmists will say that the U.S. is only a small part of the world. But if the U.S. has been cooling and also having fewer extreme weather events…then (assuming that warming=bad, cooling=good like the warmists say), shouldn’t people in the U.S. want AGW? Our lives get better and the competition has more problems…yay!

    • Are you getting tired of this wind yet?

      • Scott says:

        It was to my back most of the way when I ran home from work the other day…nothing like having a breeze to your back for 7-8 miles of a 10.6-mile run. 🙂

        High of 80+ F today, snow tomorrow…if you don’t like the weather in Colorado, wait a day.

        -Scott

  4. Andy Weiss says:

    You never hear the alarmists mentioning the possible positive effects of CO2. Very few things in this world are all good or all bad.

    It’s probably a stretch to say that more CO2 in causing weaker tornadoes, but if they were getting stronger instead, we would never hear the end of it.

  5. Amino Acids in Meteorites says:

    It’s because of global warming. It makes for less disasters.

    ;O)

  6. Dean says:

    Sometimes when you learn facts like this you get the opportunity to say to some that “Unfortunately reality disagrees”

    …and Karl Rove says that guys like me were ”in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who ”believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ”That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. ”We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
    – Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush; NY Times

    …just so you know what kind of scum we are dealing with here from both wings, left and right, while the bird is sh—ing on us for scores of years now.

    Interesting that the chart only goes to 2005 but a check on the NOAA site shows this is the latest available. What is most interesting is that the Feb 2011 data shows it is the most active in the record.

    Counter to the point of this piece but still supportive of the realist position because Piers Corbyn had forcast there would be many significant tornado activity periods from an analysis of the Sun and the Moon. This is almost better, but not for the poor people who were in the way of these solar superstorms. We are still wasting money on this useless CO2 myth when we could be doing something really beneficial.

    How’s that conveniently ending the graph at 2005 working out for you this weekend?
