Empirically Naming Climate Alarmists

The fate of mankind, as well as of religion, depends upon
the emergence of a new faith in the future.
Armed with such a faith, we might find
it possible to resanctify the earth.

What If Hurricanes Were Named For Climate Change Deniers?

Is it time to adopt a new naming system for hurricanes?

A new video from 350 Action proposes the World Meteorological Organization drop its pre-determined tropical cyclone list and name the storms for politicians who deny climate change.

Although “many” policymakers still engage in climate change denial, the group writes on an accompanying website, “The scientific community is in agreement: Climate change is the reason why we’re experiencing more and more frequent and intense weather, including extreme hurricanes and tropical storms.” 

Huffington Post

“As climate change continues to create more frequent and devastating storms, we propose a new naming system.”

Climate change alarmists use names, fear, stunts and hysteria to avoid debating facts.

NO MAJOR (category 3-5) HURRICANE STRIKES FOR 8 YEARS

As of today, it has been 2,864 days or 7.9 years since the US has been hit by a Cat 3 or greater hurricane. The last such hurricane was Wilma on October 24th, 2005. Hurricanes are actually getting not worse, but fewer. Grover Cleveland, who was president between 1885 and 1889, had 27 major hurricanes during his presidency. Only 3 major hurricanes have made landfall during Obama’s tenure thus far.

Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. summarises:

HURRICANE FREQUENCY

The graph above provides an update to data on the remarkable ongoing US “intense hurricane drought.” When the Atlantic hurricane season starts next June 1, it will have been 2,777 days since the last time an intense (that is a Category 3, 4 or 5) hurricane made landfall along the US coast (Wilma in 2005). Such a prolonged period without an intense hurricane landfall has not been observed since 1900. 

Roger Pielke Jr, December 10, 2012:

…After adjusting for patterns of development, over the long term there is no climate change signal … of increasing damage from extreme events either globally or in particular regions.

No US Child Has Ever Seen A Category Five Hurricane

Posted on Real Science August 24, 2013 by 

Today is the 21st anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, the last category 5 hurricane to hit the US. This means that no US child has ever seen a storm that strong. Andrew made landfall in Florida with winds over 150 MPH

Two other category five hurricanes hit the US last century – Camille in 1969 and the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, which was the most intense hurricane to hit the US since 1850.

The US has not been hit by a major (category 3-5)  hurricane in eight years, the longest such period since the Civil War. Florida has not been hit by any hurricane for eight years, by far the longest such period on record for that state.

US HEAT-WAVES

According to the EPA, the worst heat-waves occurred during the 1930s. Heat waves occurred with high frequency in the 1930s, and these remain the most severe heat waves in the U.S. historical record

NO GLOBAL WARMING FOR 17 YEARS

Satellite temperature records on six different data sets show that there has been no atmospheric global warming since 1998 or any statistically-significant warming for between 18 and 23 years. A distinct lack of any warming evident, despite a dramatic rise in industrial greenhouse gas emissions over the same period:
