Debunking Global Warming Hurricane Hysteria

Updated on 1/6/11.

Facts on USA Hurricanes -- From NOAA:

1) Most deaths - 1900, Galveston
2) Most costly - 1926, SE Florida/Alabama
(after adjusting for Inflation, Population and Wealth Normalization)
3) Most intense - 1935, FL Keys
4) Decade with most hurricane strikes (Continental US) - 1941-1950
5) Decade with most major hurricane strikes (Continental US) - 1941-1950

Click here for a more detailed academic paper. For the record, I disagree with the authors of this paper as regards the question of whether there would be any benefit from reducing CO2 emissions. But, we agree on the relationship between climate change and hurricanes -- which is, after all, the focus of this particular post.

Click here for another academic paper. Click here for a discussion of that paper.

Even the VERY most vocal hurricane alarmist has reconsidered his stance in the face of the FACTS.

Click here for the letter of resignation from the IPCC written by Dr. Landsea, a very prominent expert on this topic. Dr. Landsea is one of many who have resigned from the IPCC over similar concerns.
