A tornado 95 years ago destroyed dozens of cities in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky and Tennessee, killing nearly 1,000 people and injuring 3,000 more.
Climate experts say that Hurricane Patricia (with no casualties and no major damage) was the most powerful and dangerous storm on record.
Generally speaking, when small hurricanes hit unpopulated, mountainous areas, they tend no to kill anyone.
Actual category 5 hurricanes knock all the trees over. But thanks for the stupid comment.
So John is another one who has swallowed the propaganda put out by the globalist cartels.
Hey John, get educated and FOLLOW THE MONEY!
J. P. Morgan & Assoc has control the MSM since 1915
JPMorgan is #9 in global control and Goldman Sachs, who owns Turnbull the new PM of Australia is #18. SEE information below.
The Network of Global Corporate Control
The reason why wealth is not indicative of control is because the top holders like Vanguard Group (#4) are the voters of the stocks held by pension funds and the investment funds of individuals via Mutual Funds.
For example MONSANTO:
When I checked in 2009, Vanguard controlled 37,496,850 shares or 6.86% and divisions of Fidelity held 39,127,443 shares or 7.15% The founding Johnson family controls most of Fidelity. Edward C Johnson 3rd is chairman of the group. FMR LLC, through its control of Fidelity controls the shares owned by the Funds.

The following lists not only the top 50 corporations but the individuals:

Reclassification of tornadoes as beneficial CO2-scrubbing events
Platform proposal to the Democratic National Convention, Philadelphia, 2016
Working paper, notes 20151101
Most of the 400 inhabitants in Griffin affected by a single 1925 tornado were retired farmers. We are certain that the carbon footprint of a prosperous retired farmer was smaller in 1925 than today but every person removal in Griffin must have scrubbed significant amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.
The elimination of high school students in Murphysboro would have removed even more atmospheric CO2 because students have a higher future value of carbon emittance cefv(y) than retired farmers. Comparable beneficial effects are expected to have occurred in all other eliminations in the five-state area. A single large tornado can lower the average planetary temperature by an estimated 100,000th of a degree.
Proposal: As a party of science, the Democratic Party must reclassify tornadoes as beneficial climate phenomena and apply these findings to its 2016 platform.
Further research notes:
– Define proper policies that discourage human resettling and recultivation of destroyed areas
– Analyze the beneficial climate impact of earthquakes, tsunamis, cancer, Ebola, etc.
– Evaluate the carbon scrubbing potential of each environmental driver
– Request a support paper from the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Energy *)
Nope, had too many kids.
Genghis Khan died ~750 years ago, so assuming 25 years per generation, you get about 30 men between the present and that period. In more quantitative terms, ~10% of the men who reside within the borders of the Mongol Empire as it was at the death of Genghis Khan may carry his Y chromosome, and so ~0.5% of men in the world, about 16 million individuals alive today, do so.
Poor Genghis, so misunderstood and so lied about.
While not disputing chances of any given individual being a descendant of Genghis, you seem to have bought into a fallacy, that if one of these descendants had not been fathered by Genghis or a descendant of Genghis, that that person would not have been born at all. I dispute any such assertion. Unless the women involved were somehow restricted (such as with a chastity belt) just because they don’t have a child by a given man, does not mean that would not have had a child by a different man. You cannot rightly claim that the population would be smaller by the number of direct descendants of Genghis, if Genghis had never fathered any children at all.
Maybe, but that doesn’t disqualify our Democratic Party platform proposal. Tornadoes don’t have kids*) so if you are right, they are even greener than Genghis Khan**).
*) The only known mechanism of tornadoes causing an increase in births and their unwanted future carbon footprint is by creating power outages. However, scientific research cited below suggests that power outages only affect birth rates in electrified villages. Tornadoes are thus not likely to cause additional births in villages with no electricity.
Such unwanted population increase effects will largely disappear during the next decade. President Obama’s beneficial energy policies will ensure skyrocketing electricity prices so that the few American children that will still happen to be born will be raised in President Clinton’s villages with no electricity. The whole village assembly will retire at night to the central longhouse and there will be little opportunity for mischief by the remaining breeding couples.
**) Genghis had his own tent. That’s another argument in favor of central longhouses.
“Climate experts say that Hurricane Patricia (with no casualties and no major damage) was the most powerful and dangerous storm on record.”
Does anyone have any information as to what the final result of the Patricia’s landfall was? The MSM effectively dropped the story once they determined there were no major casualties or property damage. It is impossible in my mind that a hurricane, whatever it’s size, would strike a coastline with 160 MPH max winds and NOT cause any major damage.
Steve, Joe Bastardi did a similar story a couple of years ago about the massive casualties from tornadoes back in the 1920s and 1930s. And he went on to stress about how the population density was so much less back then. Imagine tornadoes of that magnitude striking the same regions now? Of course, there are much more rigorous warning and alert systems in place allowing greater chances to seek shelter.
Also, I remember several years ago when we had a couple bad seasons with tornado activity and how we were told that was just the beginning of even stronger cycles. Then, all at once, activity is at all-time lows. Of course, once NWS and NOAA get to work they will be worse than ever!
People are just better informed these days with nearly instant communications and far better knowledge, and forecasting. But when they come late at night or early in the morning when most people are in bed they can still catch a lot of people unawares.
