Data 1, Theory 0

The number and severity of hurricanes has hasn’t increased over the last 100 years:

The warming theorists — most of whom, no doubt, earnestly believe that human activity has triggered nature’s wrath — have the ears of the news media. But there is another plausible explanation, supported by decades of physical observation. The spate of recent destructive hurricanes may have little or nothing to do with greenhouse gases and climate change, and everything to do with the Atlantic Ocean’s currents.

  1. Ocean currents have nothing to do with the climate? o’rly? (I definitely wasn’t googling for “THC” when I found that).

    What spate of destructive hurricanes, anyway? Last year was very calm. A slight dip or plateau in an upward trend totally negates the upward trend. Didn’t you study statistics?

  2. “The spate of recent destructive hurricanes may have little or nothing to do with greenhouse gases and climate change, and everything to do with the Atlantic Ocean’s currents.”

    The hurricane prediction is basically:
    climate change -> slowed ocean currents -> hurricanes.
