NOAA: “No Compelling Evidence” Behind Claims Of More Hurricane Landfalls!

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailDespite all the signals being sent from every direction suggesting global warming is leading to more frequent and intense hurricanes, even the warmist NOAA is forced to confess that this has not been the long-term case. About the claims of more hurricanes? Well, the NOAA says: wait another 30 to 50 years! Sorry alarmists, […]

Florence Water Vapor Weight Falling As Rain Over Carolinas DOUBLES The CO2 Man Emits Globally…In Entire Year!

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailFlorence shows that atmospheric water vapor dwarfs human emissions of trace gas CO2. To put some perspective on the scale of water vapor and trace gas CO2 in our atmosphere, let’s compare the two in terms of rainfall from Hurricane Florence alone over the Carolinas and surrounding area. Surely with man’s fossil fuel profligacy, […]

Inconvenient!…Real Observed Data Demolish Alarmist Claims Of Strengthening, More Frequent Hurricanes

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailNowadays the usual suspects are busily peddling the idea that Hurricane Florence’s intensity is due to climate change. For example climate activist Stefan Rahmstorf of the alarmist Potsdam Institute blames Florence on global warming, telling the online Potsdamer Nachrichten (PNN) here: “In fact many of the strongest storms we have ever seen have occurred […]

New Science Says Hurricane Frequencies Are Declining, Yet U.S. Media Blame 'Climate Deniers' For Florence

New Science Says Hurricane Frequencies Are Declining, Yet U.S. Media Blame ‘Climate Deniers’ For Florence

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailThe peer-reviewed scientific literature robustly affirms that land-falling hurricane frequencies and intensities have remained steady or declined in recent decades.  So have droughts, floods, and other extreme weather events.  But the editorial board of The Washington Post spurns this scientific evidence and inexplicably blames politicians and “those who deny” climate change for landfalling hurricanes and […]
