NOAA's lists of recent yearly tornado and hurricane activity.

Notice how the number of tornados and deaths from them have been going down each of the past three years. Maybe they read this backwards ?

And since 2010 NOAA is reporting that yearly major hurricanes have also been declining.

So why is THE SAME Government now putting out a report saying that the weather has been getting more extreme ?

Maybe weather in general? not isolated events like a tornado or hurricane? We did have an extreme winter. Also, pretty bad drought over in the west last year if I remember correctly.

Not that I'm on board with anthropogenic climate change. I think the Earth has its own natural thermostats and regulators as mentioned earlier.. :)

Lee, I don't think they are excluding sever storms. Those were mentioned in the news releases.

And drought is a recurring, natural part of the Southwest.

One of my sisters has lived in the Carmel, Calif area for over 30 years. Much of that time there she has been on water restrictions because of "droughts". Some years it was so bad she was fined hundreds a month if she went over on her allotment of water.

Other years there were the opposite extreme - flooding leading to mud slides. It's been going on like that in the Southwest for longer than we've been there. It's a land of naturally occurring weather extremes. Just like the Caribbean is prone to getting hurricanes.

And, . . how old do you think the name, "Tornado Alley" is and why it got that name ?

So now, we're supposed to believe one branch of our Government (that coincidently WANTS to tax us more) says weather is getting more and more extreme, while another branch of the same Government (that has nothing to do with taxes) says extreme weather is on the decline? ?

I've seen data compiled by genuine meteorological scientists regarding time trends in hurricane strikes, strong tornadoes, heat extremes, accumulated cyclone energy, wet/dry percentages and probably half a dozen others that I'm forgetting and none of them show anything that looks like a trend of "worsening" weather.

If it has been getting warmer, why has the average Winter Temperature been dropping in North America for the past 20 years?

Personally, I think we should be building modern nuclear power plants. Anyone with a $2 calculator can calculate that renewable energy sources are never going to meet our energy needs.

No matter which side of the global climate change you are on, we should have better information on what the real CO2 numbers are from different fuels.

Rather than publish what a fuel in a lab has for CO2 per mmbtu, they should calculate the total CO2 involved in the whole life cycle of getting that fuel.

In the case of oil from the Middle East, how much CO2 is generated defending the politics of the fuel source, how much CO2 is given off in shipping, refining, etc.? How does that total life cycle CO2 compare to anthracite coal?

My friend designed and built one of the larger pellet maker plants in the Northeast. Pellets are not as CO2 neutral as people want you to believe. Most are not byproducts of sawdust from other operations. They are whole trees, which were reducing CO2, they use gas and diesel to harvest and haul them, huge amounts of electricity and energy to process the logs into dry, compacted pellets and then plastic to bag them.

That's pretty much consistent with the data I've seen, which shows actual mean temps have basically flat-lined for the past 17 years, and are below the "lowest possible" scenarios previously spread by the alarmists. The alarmists say "the science is settled", but the science says the trend is flat and the relationship with CO2 - the concentration of which has been increasing steadily while the temps have remained flat - is basically nonexistent.

Most people do not know, as its never reported this way, that any excess ( above normal) heat created on earth comes from the poles being microwaved by Solar flares that hit the earths atmosphere. When a flare, that's made up of positive and negative charges, comes in contact with the earths outer atmosphere, it splits up ( causing southern and norther "lights"). When this happens, some radiation gets through, affecting communications AND warming of the poles occurs. This creates a Latent heat that takes a few months to show up changing the weather. As it stands right now, Solar flare activity is at a 150 Year LOW. ( notice that hurricane season we just had??) In core samples in Northern 'Greenland", they have found the temp there was an average of 4 whole degrees WARMER... 1000 years ago... Wonder how "Green" land got its name??
While some Solar Flare activity has been noted recently, very little came towards the earth. WE are at the start of the downhill curve on this solar flare cycle, which means its going to be COLD. ( roughly 11 year cycles)
Note recent weather, and its Not yet winter.
I have had many discussions with real involved college students on Green house gases. I Always ask what they think of the ratio of 02 to Co2. They Always say its in decline and we cant stop it. After a change in conversation, I come back to Jr high Plant Biology. These same students AND professors have already said a few times how much Co2 humans, animals and Plants give off, and nothing about a volcano, or "leaking gases from the earths crust. I ask them so where does the Oxygen come from?? They blurt out water, and water vapor. I proposed, "IF we are Using so much oxygen, would we have less water on earth? "
It seems that Nobody in education knows or is being taught that green plants give off HUGE amounts of O2 at night. ( why you shouldn't park your car on the grass at night). The warmer it is on earth, the More green plants grow, and the more oxygen is given off. The second half of Photosynthesis the global warming crowd does not want you to know.
Bamboo here ( yeah its a pain) can absorb 1 quart of water per stalk, per DAY, those huge leaves just PUMP O2 at night ...
Also there is Rock on Earth, found in the middle east, that Absorbs CO2 !!
