Hurricanes Aren’t Anything New

Hurricanes Aren’t Anything New

Hurricanes aren't anything new. in the 1880s, a record 27 hurricanes made landfall in the U.S.

So hurricanes are something new and could be the result of climate change, right?

Well, hurricanes aren’t anything new. Since 1851, 292 hurricanes have made landfall on the United States, according to the Hurricane Research Division of the National Oceanic & Meteorological Laboratory.

Here’s the list of hurricanes that have hit the U.S. since 1851.

    Shame on this article and shame on the rag that posts this article. Why do people turn a blind eye? It’s like the don’t care and don’t want to hear about it but are willing to put enough time into writing about it. What the hell have they got to gain by denying the reality of our planet’s climate? And what do they have to lose by accepting it?

      Climate change is cyclical but the number of liberal loonies is constant. Their tears will make the oceans. Rise

    Global Climate Change. Let’s take the first word first: global. We can not look at America only if we want to understand the planet. Second: climate. Climate refers to the weather conditions over a long period of time. How long? For argument’s sake, let’s say at least 30 years, or about the rate which we see our local environments change. Since the industrial revolution, global climate has experienced a concurrent rise in atmospheric and sea surface temperatures with increased human-released carbon dioxide gas, which scatters sunlight in the atmosphere causing a greenhouse effect. The 2 ingredients required for hurricanes are warm air and seawater, both of which have increased globally over the past ~100 years during hurricane season(1). In the entire Atlantic Ocean, there is a clear increase over this time period in named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes(2). Whereas this does not provide a picture of global hurricane increase related to global climate change, most hurricanes which make U.S. landfall come from the Atlantic Ocean. To see more about hurricane formation, frequency, intensity, and relationship with global climate change, see this short (<2 min) video from PBS(3).

    The statement: "hurricanes are not new" typifies an UNinformed scientific view. Take a look at quality as well as quantity both simple and basic to scientific inquiry. Review the lit. at the very least; read some of the articles your audience posts and also inform yourself about:

    Climate Change and Disaster Capitalism

    at the very least.
