Last Three Years the Quietest For Tornadoes Ever

cbeaudry Re:And where are all the hurricanes? (180 comments)

He hasnt been proven right.
There is no way to tell if storm intensity should be increasing or not.
The corrections you linked to about methane only serve the cause of brushing methane aside to re-focus on the all evil CO2. Nothing to see there.

Last Three Years the Quietest For Tornadoes Ever

Look its easy to reply like you do, when you skip things he said.

"...we're gonna have more strong storms, thats clear." James Hansen (in the video linked).

The point is, they will say reasoned comments, like, we still need more research, we cant directly attribute THIS storm to AGW, BUT (and there is always a but), all these storms and more hurricains and rainfalls and droughts, we've been seeling lately is the cause of AGW, because there is more energy in the air...

All the while, temps havent rising statisticaly in 18 years, so how can there be more energy in the air today than there was in 1999?
All the while, there are no more heavy rainfalls, droughts, storms, hurricains or tornadoes. NOT ONE STUDY can disprove the statement I just made.
Statistics show clearly that there isnt more extreme weather than 10, 20, 30, 40 or 80 years ago.

Also, the one thing that the media especialy use as metrics of damage is COST. But they dont take into account inflation, population increase and developped land expansion. There are more people, inflation has change dollar amounts and there is more infrastructure than there was in 1850's. So of course, when a tornado hits a populated area, BOOM costs of damages skyrocket. That doesnt mean, the tornado is stronger or bigger than ever before.

First off, to a layperson (which is almost everyone concerned when it comes to climate policy) when one of the most known scientists on climate change says, "If you are a betting person, you'd probably go with a prediction of greater frequency and intensity... due to human-cause climate change!", its the equivalent of the scientist just saying Tornadoes are caused by AGW.

These scientists say one thing in their papers, say another in the interviews, BUT they always find a way to sneak in something that makes it all seem scary. Why? Because that's what the politics wants.

Look at the 2 other links. Mann's was the more moderate of the 3.

For you to argue around this, is disingenuous. They are public faces of AGW and they keep repeatedly using alarmism to pass their message. Because if the sky isnt falling, who will pay attention to them.

I did check the link, it shows exactly what I thought it would. Wishy washy thinking, but in the end ALARM. Because, who wouldnt bet along side a scientist on the subject he is an expert in, right? Because SCIENCE!!

This is not specificaly about tropical storms though it goes to my point.

There is scientific litterature stating predictions about "extreme" weather linked to clumate change.

Restricting myself to published papers would be a joy. If they didint publish just about anything that says climate change regardless if it is science or not.

  But that point aside, it would be like burying my gead in the sand. Because its not the sensible scientists im worried about, its the craxy ones luke Mann, Cook, Hansen and the UN political agenda.

Telling me to restrict my reading to the science is like telling me to look at the right hand of the magician while he pulls the dove out of the left one.

Where are you when every month they scream bloody global warming because of a 0.001 C increase over the same month last year with an error margin of 0.1+\- ?????

This goes both ways.

So please tell me why, scientists arent going to the media and telling them to stop the scaremongering?

The AWG political agenda, writes scientific reports with lots of conservative language. However the same people go out into the public, at Climat conferences or write on their own blogs and tell very scary stories.

They are talking out of both sides of their mouths.

"Super duper mega" Storm Sandy (hint the sarcasm) was destructive because of where it landed. Not because of the global warming. Hint, they couldnt call it a hurrican because it was too weak.

The chance of getting something that destructive without global warming is pretty high. It happens and has happened ALL THE TIME. You think destructive storms are new? The only difference is if they land in populated areas or not.

Yes Arctic sea ice is increasing over the last few years. For how long? Who knows, but its far from the linear downward slope predicted.

Antarctic is doing great. They also have a new sub now that has gone underneath to take thickness measurements which where only speculative before... and behold, its thicker than predicted.

There was predictions of more and stronger tornadoes, if you have to ask that questions, you are either not paying attention or being disingenuous.
We are supposed to interpret it as, "They have no effing idea what they are saying!". The whole of AWG scaremongering is pure prediction with almost no hard facts.Yes the greehouse effect is real, yes there is a very SLIGHT amount for warming from CO2, but actual temperature records of the last 24 years are so far from model predictions its not even funny anymore.

The manipulation is obvious and the excuses are ridiculous.

Just look at NOAA data or especially NCDC curves for temperature produced 30 years ago and look at the curves for today.
They have completely obliterated the medieval warm period They have stampeded out the high temperature spike of the 30's. And generally reduced everything before the 60's by some degree to make everything past the 80-90 look way worst than it actually is.

Also, if you want perspective, Have you seen what GISS temp data series, looks like when presented on a a graph of an alcohol thermometer in Farenheight?
This is a global mean temp series.

Take a look at it, let me know what you think.

The Software Big Oil's PR Firm Uses To "Convert Average Citizens"

cbeaudry Re:...and Greenpeace... (110 comments)

Is 400 million enough?

Because that's what Greenpeace gathered in funding in 2012.

Besides, its easy to ignore the tens of billions if not 50-100 billion world wide in propaganda spent by the world governements on AGW.

Australian Post Office Opens Mail Forwarding Warehouse In the USA

cbeaudry Re:One has to expect this will be caught up with.. (142 comments)

To some degree, however not really.

Tire life depends on tread wear.

The higher the tread wear, the less sticky the tire.

So tire life (mileage) also depends on tire performance.

High performance tires, or stickier tires, don't last long. If you get a very long lasting tire, it'll be a great highway tire, but not as good at handling and breaking distance.

Computer Scientists Say Meme Research Doesn't Threaten Free Speech

cbeaudry Re:Question (109 comments)

Is it just my misunderstanding or is a viral video NOT a meme?

Not saying the study has this wrong, but many of the commentators seems to have this wrong.

Rite Aid and CVS Block Apple Pay and Google Wallet

cbeaudry Re: Good luck with that. (558 comments)

Though most of Europe was slow to adopt, the UK and especially Canada where almost in lockstep with the USA with Credit Card adoption.

Actually the main reason is regulatory. In the US credit card fraud costs are passed on to the retailers and the consumer (in some cases).
So the banks have had little incentive to change.
