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?
