2016 Hottest Year On Record


Recommended Posts

A new report finds climate change is likely impacting hurricane season in two contradictory ways.


The new research was published this week in Nature Climate Change by Florida State georgraphy professor Jim Elsner and Namyoung Kang, deputy director of the National Typhoon Center in South Korea. The study finds that warmer ocean temperatures, caused by climate change, may be fueling stronger hurricanes, while at the same time, creating fewer storms.


We're seeing fewer hurricanes, but the ones we do see are more intense," Elsner said. "When one comes, all hell can break loose."


In order for a tropical disturbance to develop, the conditions need to be just right. While that includes a moist and unstable atmosphere, as well as weak vertical wind shear, ocean temperatures are also very important. Sea-surface temperatures need to be warm -- usually greater than 80 degrees -- therefore, those warmer oceans would allow for stronger hurricanes and typhoons.

I remember when you were claiming global warming was going to create hundreds of hurricanes every year. Quick post a few pictures of a lake drying up. Oh wait, you are so stupid you don't know how to post pictures. My bad, carry on.

Yeah well, you know the libberidiots will twist observations into whatever prediction suits their crisis de jour.

 

 

 

alGore was....wrong. Climate change is indeed happening. It's the people who continue to make consistently incorrect, dire predictions who are to be scrutinized.

Yes, climate change is happening. As far as we can tell it's been happening for billions of years.

My questions about global warming's impact is more based on the failed predictions made by scientist involved in the study.

 

Gore predicted countless hurricanes. It never happened.

Actually the opposite happened.

 

"Experts" predicted the England would never see a snow storm ever again.

The same winter they had a massive blizzard.

 

They change the goal post and things got so bad they even changed the name

benny runs when cow farts were first blamed for global warming. The story changes daily

My biggest issue is the "experts" have been wrong so many times...

 

There's a long list of Gore predictions that never happened..

 

then they find an iceberg melting and CNN has a hour long special on it...

 

How about the hurricanes we were promised?

The same scientists predicted a coming ice age

I know what you mean. Benny said after Katrina we could expect more than a 100 hurricanes a year. He even said Bush caused Katrina and could have prevented it. Of course those where the low info talking points at that time.

Indeed. What is less clear is the impact human activity is having and if it is truly detrimental, and to what extent.

Agreed but I don't like wasting trillion$ my grandkids will have to repay China to further the alt-left radical apologist nuts that want us to believe white industrial commerce is destroying the planet, when all they really want to do is cripple the capitalist marketplace so they can force their progressive bullshit agenda down our throats.

I'm not a scientist.....

 

So I listen to them and they're wrong so many times I'm now suspicious...

 

Benson said Clinton would get 400 electoral votes...

Also, predicted she would win by 15 points....

Then he predicted Wall Street would collapse under Trump...

 

And he's lecturing us on Global Warming?
