Deadliest 15 Floods In History Occurred With CO2 Below 350 PPM

Obama says that floods are getting worse due to global warming, but as is always the case, he has absolutely no clue what he is talking about. A storm surge in the year 1530 killed more than 1,000 times as many people as Sandy’s storm surge.

  1. The St. Mary Magdalene’s flood (1342) at number 28 must have been very severe when you read about it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Mary_Magdalene%27s_flood
    Just look up the cities how widespread this flood was. The other remarkable thing is that the flood was also very high and not beaten since.

    Uh, do you suppose dikes built since the 1530 storm have something to do with less flooding? And what about the thousands of dams built in the last century?

    • I used to live in Bristol, and don’t remember seeing any dikes there.

      On 30 January 1607 the Bristol Channel floods resulted in the drowning of an estimated 2,000 or more people, with houses and villages swept away, an estimated 200 square miles (518 km2) of farmland inundated and livestock destroyed,wrecking the local economy along the coasts of the Bristol Channel and Severn Estuary, in what was then the Kingdom of England.

        If they can invent a scenario that CO2 can cause Global warming … they will invent dikes where there are none. The first casualty of a lie is the truth.

    Steve,
    Do you know the difference between tsunamis and big winter storms? Wasn’t about climate.
    “…Written evidence from the time describes events that were similar to those that unfolded in the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, including the sea receding before the wave arrived, a wave of water that rushed in faster than men could run, sparks coming off the top of the wave, and a crowd of people who stood and watched the wave coming towards them until it was too late to run. Some of the most detailed accounts also state that it had been a sunny morning.[8]…”

    • There are no subduction zones anywhere near the west coast of the UK. Not likely it was a Tsunami. More likely a storm surge which got amplified in the Bristol Channel, which has some of the highest tides in the world.

    Doesn’t sound like a big storm, on a Sunny day, but I found this which doesn’t apply to AGW,
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meteotsunamis
    and this about tsunamis in the Atlantic, and yes, I know that Bristol is on the other side “…The east coast of Scotland was struck by a 70 feet (21 m) high tsunami around 6100 BC, during the Mesolithic period. The wave was caused by the massive underwater Storegga slide off Norway, which occurred then….”

    Lots of action in Iceland.

    • There is nothing facing Bristol which could produce a tsunami. It is protected by Ireland, Wales and Cornwall. It most likely was a storm surge, possibly from a storm which passed a few tens of miles away.
