Al Gore and the other Climate Alarmists have been telling us for years that the release of greenhouse gases will bring more frequent and powerful storms. So, while yes, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has been on the increase, what does the data actually show? Why… it shows that 2012-2013 tornado frequency is lower than it has been for decades, and as Anthony Watts points out on his website, it’s been over 7 1/2 years since a category 3 hurricane has made landfall on the United States. When will the folks in academia and media stop treating AlGore and others like him as sagacious climate heroes?
According to the May 1st post by Harold Brooks at NOAA: “The 12-month period from May 2012 to April 2013 was remarkable for the absence of tornado activity and tornado impacts in the United States.”
What’s really remarkable is that people still take Al Gore seriously. There is so much that we still don’t understand about the Earth’s climate system. Oh, and did I mention the globe has not gotten any warmer for about 15 years running. Forget about a tax on carbon – we cannot let the Green Lobby run our lives and ruin our economy.
