    Now that was a perfect storm of circumstances.

    It’s a good thing that Gen. Henry Robert protected Galveston from future disasters by curbing their CO2-producing fossil fuel and cement use… or something.

    The rebuilding of Galveston is a fascinating story http://www.texasalmanac.com/topics/history/galvestons-response-hurricane-1900. Following this devastating storm the ground level of the city was built up by as much as 16′ of sand and a sea wall constructed.

    No attempt was made to blame this disaster on trace amounts of a life giving gas.

  5. John Houghton’s scam book “Global Warming a Complete Briefing” has a chart that gauges hurricanes on damage in dollars, and he doesn’t adjust for inflation. He rates the Galveston storm as minor, of course. I’m sure it would be major if he did adjust for inflation, but that would go against The Cause.

    People need to gauge hurricanes on wind speed, pressure, storm surge, etc. to be relevant to global warming. Number of people killed and damage to human property is not how you measure a hurricane.

    The book, “Issac’s Storm”, gave a very good description of the intensity of the storm. I remember the snakes hung up in fences afterward and they bit people in the water during the surge.
