1925 Low CO2 Tornado Caused 3,757 Casualties In Five States

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

      Abstract
      The structure of the control network of transnational corporations affects global market competition and financial stability…. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers…

      Concentration of Control
      …It should be noticed that, although scholars have long measured the concentration of wealth and income [22], there is no prior quantitative estimation for control. …
      In principle, one could expect inequality of control to be comparable to inequality of income across households and firms, since shares of most corporations are publicly accessible in stock markets. In contrast, we find that only 737 top holders accumulate
      80% of the control over the value of all TNCs (see also the list of the top 50 holders in Table S1 of Appendix S1). The corresponding level of concentration is N(1) = 0.61%, to be compared with N(2) = 4.235%, for operating revenue. Other sensible comparisons include: income distribution in developed countries with N(3) ~5%-10% [22] and corporate revenue in Fortune1000 (N(4) ~ 30% in 2009). This means that network control is much more unequally distributed than wealth. In particular, the top ranked actors hold a control ten times bigger than what could be expected based on their wealth…

      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.
      Power of Attorney to vote Fidelity Management & Research Company (FMR LLC shares in Monsanto)

      ….Devonshire Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02109, a wholly- owned subsidiary of FMR LLC and an investment adviser registered under Section 203 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, is the beneficial owner of 26,388,306 shares or 4.816% of the Common Stock outstanding of Monsanto Company (“the Company”) as a result of acting as investment adviser to various investment companies registered under Section 8 of the Investment Company Act of 1940…..

      The following lists not only the top 50 corporations but the individuals:
      Financial Core of the Transnational Corporate Class

      Introduction

      In this study, we decided to identify in detail the people on the boards of directors of the top ten asset management firms and the top ten most centralized corporations in the world. Because of overlaps, there is a total of thirteen firms, which collectively have 161 directors on their boards. We think that this group of 161 individuals represents the financial core of the world’s transnational capitalist class. They collectively manage $23.91 trillion in funds and operate in nearly every country in the world. They are the center of the financial capital that powers the global economic system. Western governments and international policy bodies work in the interests of this financial core to protect the free flow of capital investment anywhere in the world….

  2. 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 *)

    Why Genghis Khan was good for the planet

    Laying waste to land scrubbed 700m tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

    His empire lasted a century and a half and eventually covered nearly a quarter of the earth’s surface. His murderous Mongol armies were responsible for the massacre of as many as 40 million people. Even today, his name remains a byword for brutality and terror. But boy, was Genghis green.

    Genghis Khan, in fact, may have been not just the greatest warrior but the greatest eco-warrior of all time, according to a study by the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Energy. It has concluded that the 13th-century Mongol leader’s bloody advance, laying waste to vast swaths of territory and wiping out entire civilisations en route, may have scrubbed 700m tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere – roughly the quantity of carbon dioxide generated in a year through global petrol consumption – by allowing previously populated and cultivated land to return to carbon-absorbing forest.

    An intriguing notion, certainly. But possibly not a guaranteed vote-winner for the Green party’s next manifesto.

      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.
      http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gnxp/2010/08/1-in-200-men-direct-descendants-of-genghis-khan/#.Vjeg4UOBqPw

      Poor Genghis, so misunderstood and so lied about.

      • Neal S says:

        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.

      • Nope, had too many kids.

        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.

        Power Outages, Power Externalities, and Baby Booms
        Alfredo Burlando
        University of Oregon
        March 25, 2013
        Abstract

        Determining whether power outages have significant fertility effects is an important policy question in developing countries, where blackouts are common and modern forms of family planning scarce. Using birth records from Zanzibar, this paper shows that a 2008 month-long blackout caused a significant, 15-18% increase in the number of births eight to ten months later. The increase is similar across villages that had electricity, regardless of the level of electrification, while villages with no electricity connections saw no changes in birth numbers. Household surveys confirm that people were more likely to consume their leisure inside the home during the blackout, but time use shifts are unlikely to be the sole drivers of the fertility change. While it is unclear whether the baby boom is likely to translate to a permanent increase in the population, the paper highlights an important hidden consequence of power instability in developing countries. It also shows evidence that electricity imposes significant externality effects on those populations that have little exposure to it.

    “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.

  4. spren says:

    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.
