Another failed prediction for global warming: fewer extreme weather events

From Forbes magazine, the latest data falsifying global warming.

Tornados:

New data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show the past 12 months set a record for the fewest tornadoes in recorded history. Not only did Mother Nature just set a record for lack of tornado activity, she absolutely shattered the previous record for fewest tornadoes in a 12-month period. During the past 12 months, merely 197 tornadoes struck the United States. Prior to this past year, the fewest tornadoes striking the United States during a 12-month period occurred from June 1991 through July 1992, when 247 tornadoes occurred.

The new tornado record is particularly noteworthy because of recent advances in tornado detection technology. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is able to detect more tornadoes in recent years than in prior decades due to technological advances. Even with such enhanced tornado detection capability, the past 12 months shattered all prior records for recorded tornadoes.

Hurricanes:

Hurricane inactivity is also setting all-time records. The United States is undergoing its longest stretch in recorded history without a major hurricane strike, with each passing day extending the unprecedented lack of severe hurricanes, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data.

It has been more than 2,750 days since a major hurricane struck the United States. This easily smashes the prior record of less than 2,300 days between major hurricane strikes.

Droughts and wildfires:

Pretty much all other extreme weather events are becoming less frequent and less severe, also. Soil moisture is in long-term improvement at nearly all sites in the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank. Droughts are less frequent and less severe than in prior, colder centuries. The number of wildfires is in long-term decline despite a recent change in wildfire policy that no longer actively suppresses wildfires. Just about any way you measure it, extreme weather events are becoming quite rare.

So will the Democrats stop pushing for more socialism using pseudo-science? Well, the new Energy Secretary has declared that the debate over global warming is over. There’ nothing to debate! Just like there’s nothing to debate about Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal, the phone-tapping scandal.

  1. It probably is a good idea to tell pastors about this also. I hear too many proclaiming the end times every time a hurricane or earthquake or other natural disaster occurs. They seem to think these events are more common now and that this heralds the end of the world.

  2. I think the reason people tend to think they are more common (meaning people who aren’t pushing an agenda) is because due to the advent of the Internet and 24 hour “news” coverage, we hear far more about each individual event, whether it is in the middle of the U.S.A. or in the remotest parts of Asia or Africa than we ever used to before. Frankly, most people think of disasters as “things that happen to other people” until it happens to them, so in the past I think we tended to be ignorant unless someone rubbed our noses in it.

    I grew up at the bottom end of Tornado Alley, with a side of hurricanes just to spice things up for part of my youth. The quietness of the Caribbean in general is rather mind-boggling at this point.
