2013 – A year with Minimal Extreme Weather Events in the US

outdoor-thermometerFrom the SI Weather

There have been many forecasts in the news in recent years predicting more and more extreme weather-related events in the US, but for 2013 that prediction has been way off the mark. Whether you’re talking about tornadoes, wildfires, extreme heat or hurricanes, the good news is that weather-related disasters in the US are all way down this year compared to recent years and, in some cases, down to historically low levels.

In addition to wildfires, extreme heat is also way down across the US this year. In fact, the number of 100 degree days across the country during 2013 is not only down for this year, but it is perhaps going to turn out to be the lowest in about 100 years of records.

    Al gore’s scam is losing momentum as we speak. Al gore has no credibility except with his global elite dogs of war that want to drain the middle class of everything they can get their hands on. Don’t these evil people ever seem to have enough money? Have they found a way to take their money to hell with them? Anybody that buys into this global warming man made scam deserves to lose everything they own and be put in an institution for the mentally deranged. You libs just love a good scam.

    Climate Change fulfills the need for the collapsed world economy to resurrect itself through GREEN products and scientists pushing this unproven concept are getting upwards millions of $$$ in grants for ‘research’. WHat they do is send a report each month and give a yearly scare mongering report and the rest of the year lay back on the decks on their new mult million $$$ fishing boat bought with climate change money to supposedly investigate the environment.

    How much money are supermarkets making in GREEN goods and selling stuff like GREEn TV’s and GREEN cars. It’s a racket to make money and they’re making trillions out of scaremongering taking on the church’s old role.

    So the DEVIL now is not a red guy with a pitchfork and horns but a GREEN martian overtaking our planet.

    It disgusts me that credible journalists get sucked into believing the UN who refused to allow dissenting scientists a vote and established their climate change committee only of people agreeable to their racket. The UN…. an organization responsible for the deaths of one million Tutus, an organization as corrupt as they come that cannot send SYria a condemnation letter for gassing it’s own people, an organization under whose watch countless wars and terrorists have arisen. Now it’s CIMATE bulldust. full of corruption yet journalists trying to make a name for themselves absorb the hogwash about climate change like a cold beer.

    Now, Australian bushfires. AS if we haven’t ever had bushfires. Just they want to use this for political gain to again SCARE MONGER people. Won’t wash with me or people who are awake to their manipulation. It’s all for $$$$$$$$ the GREEN $$$$$.

    Wow- so these “supermarkets” that are hawking “green” goods are part of the scam? And so too are the manufacturers of these “green” products? Or perhaps the marketing companies who help label these products as green? All of the above? Who are these scheming companies again exactly, Liberal are they? It sure is a deeeeep scam, to include all these “liberal” companies and corporations. All that “green” money must be funneled into Al Gore’s and George Soros’s pockets. Wow. Thanks for clearing that up.

    No reply? How about one of the largest Typhoons on record hitting the Philippines right now?

    Global Warming isn’t a deliberate conspiracy, taken a certain way, it’s misplaced dogma. There’s plenty of dogmatic things that thankfully aren’t mainstream anymore, that didn’t really benefit business, economy, etc. in their day. But they were believed and treated as the best thing to do at the time. That’s what Global Warming is, it’s people throwing out information for people to feel bad about and feel scared about, not to think and reason about.

    Rob N. Hood, there’s a great word you need to know: demagoguery. People used this reasoning to blame and castigate those who might think differently. Kind of like the people blamed nonchristians for the bubonic plague. Nowadays alarmists figure, hey, let’s blame bad weather on people who aren’t scared, or who are just trying to be reasonable about the situation.

    The typhoons and hurricanes like Sandy and Irene are postdictions, the predictions are claimed after the fact. Where are the details that any skeptic like me who debunks conspiracy theorists would like to know about? Again, details, details, details!

    “the predictions are claimed after the fact” Really? No, not really. See other articles on this very site that say the opposite of your premise. Not to mention all the money not spent on actual plans to help mitigate a Sandy-like storm in New York, that was predicted, thus the plans that unfortunately went mostly unfunded due mainly to weak and incompetent politicians. Same with Katrina (looking at you W) and the sea-walls or whatever they are called (dikes, etc.). There were plans for this area as well, that if actually constructed would have most likely saved New Orleans from most of the damage. These are all real predictions for risk management that didn’t occur due to lack of funding, AND storms that actually took place, as (!) predicted. These are just two examples and also the same two examples you give, for whatever point you were trying and failed to make.
