    The US is only 2% of the Earth’s surface, so hurricanes are having trouble finding us. The other 98% is being cyclone savaged. Somebody said so.

    You know…….
    I’m out here on this rock in the middle of the ocean…..

    …..I’m afraid you’re going to jinx me with this

    It is surprising to see such a lull in the pet rock naming contest. This is the peak of the rock naming season, you know.

    • Latitude says:

      Andy, the peak will start around Aug 15 and go until the end of Sept…..
      …..we’re going to see some big changes this year, mostly in the western Carib

      …and that’s the truth…..sputtttttttt

    But..but.. Brad Pitt said we would have more intense and more frequant hurricanes because of all the SUVs!! HE CAN’T BE WRONG!!!

    The meteorologists (NOT climatologists, nary a one) at the NHC have very distinct criteria for defining what qualifies as a tropical cyclone, in its various and varied manifestations. This is extremely valuable because it allows for a sensible and quantifiable measure of heat transfer from the tropics. Ryan Maue maintains a good record of this ACE index.
    When the catastrophists claim increasing intensity, they are easy to refute because these numbers are so well vouched for. Criticize unfairly one of your best sources of defense against the inanities of the warmists if you will, it only weakens your argument when you have to cite those that you mock.

    • Wayne Ward (truthsword) says:

      While that is somewhat true, the mocking comes from the naming conventions, which have changed numerous times.Interestingly, in 2002 storms that used to just get numbers, subtropicals, started getting names. You will hear arguments that only a couple of subtripocal storms have been named and not gone tropical. Either way the super hyper naming of systmes is amusing.

  6. PJB says:

    Scientific data evolves and thus requires adjustment to naming conventions etc. As long as these changes are well-documented (unlike the climatological conspirators) and readily available (as are the NHC methods and methodologies) there can be a perception of agendizing reporting but that can be quickly confirmed or dispelled by rational analysis.

  7. Grumpy Grampy ;) says:

    There is the issue of standardization so data can be compared like to like. Changes in methodology without using that as a new starting point result in exaggerations.
    Changing methodologies is rampant in climatology and destroys the credibility of those who have.
    Insurance companies are using the changed figures to increase rates by comparing current to past without taking method changes into account. The Chicken Little Brigade are also doing the same thing.
    By making claims that say: According to version X of our methodology we should experience Y which is not related to version W!
    At least the Drought center is now advising a change point 12 years ago.
