Hurricane Season Getting Off To A Shocking Start

It has been almost three years since any hurricane hit the US. In 2005, they told us that all the hurricanes hitting the US were proof of global warming.

    I remember. I remember much. The opportunism displayed by the alarmists and co-conspirator journalists was the final straw for me. It was then I realized that alarmists weren’t simply errant in their thinking, but they were of malicious intent. They actually held a meeting/announcement about hurricanes and global warming in Texas while fellow countrymen and women and children were at the peak of human suffering nearby. Disgust is too nice of a word to describe my thoughts. Revulsion isn’t fully descriptive either. I don’t believe we will ever be able to hold these people accountable for all of the pain and suffering they’ve caused. But, knowing we aren’t the final judge brings me some contentment.

    What is the significance of 1969 on that plot?

    Hmm, I think that the 1944-2005 average is very deceptive (lack of satellites and all). Do you know if anyone has tabulated Atlantic hurricanes that made landfall (and not just landfall in the U.S.) instead of the total? I assume that number won’t be as biased (and may have little bias at all) by technological improvements.

    • The US has the majority of shoreline where Atlantic hurricanes strike, so the US numbers should be a very good indicator.

      Also the rules for naming storms (subtropical and all) have changed a few times in that time span. For example, now we name subtropical storms, and oddly nough before global warming scare we didn’t. That also distorts the numbers.

        Funny that is, I guess I’m not the only one to notice. Also it it seems that last winter every snow fall by the weather net, was labeled a storm for some reason, not to say they weren’t doing it before, but a light snow fall being called a snow storm????

    One TS activity so far is pretty much typical. The incidence ramps up in mid-August and peaks 30 days later to more or less conclude by mid-October.

    Analog years indicate that this year should have an “above average” activity but that says little about landfalls… some landfall info here http://www.e-transit.org/hurricane/welcome.html

    I realize that the link in my previous post originated in this blog, but Steve, you are such a great source of information, I couldn’t resist! 😉

    Am just repeating what PJB said, but July is often a slow month for tropical storms.
