More evidence that alarmists are a bunch of mindless twits
The reason that people use landfalling hurricanes as an historical measure, is because they didn’t have satellites and radar to detect peak one minute wind speeds at altitude in the middle of the Atlantic during the 19th century. Does Mandia think that Hurricanes are now steering clear of land just to help climate deniers? Is he actually as stupid as he pretends to be?
During recent years, there have been a number of Category 4 hurricanes that might have only been classified as weak hurricanes or even tropical storms if they had taken place at the same location during the late 1940s and early 1950s.
