    Study: Strongest hurricanes striking US three times more frequently

    Study: Strongest hurricanes striking US three times more frequently | TheHill

    The largest and most powerful hurricanes are striking the U.S. three times more frequently than they were a century ago, according to a study published Monday.

    The Danish authors of the study measured how strong a hurricane was by calculating the total area of destruction, instead of how other researchers have measured destruction, typically by the cost of the storm's damage, NBC News reported.

    Hurricanes are at an historic low.


    Figure: Global Hurricane Frequency (all & major) -- 12-month running sums. The top time series is the number of global tropical cyclones that reached at least hurricane-force (maximum lifetime wind speed exceeds 64-knots). The bottom time series is the number of global tropical cyclones that reached major hurricane strength (96-knots+). Adapted from Maue (2011) GRL.

    LOL, the made up their own criteria and published a study using it. We're all going to die! Most REAL studies have found no real change in frequency or intensity. Did the study account for population growth and urban sprawl?

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Had they done any actual research, these researchers would have known that nearly one-fourth of the 35 deadliest Atlantic hurricanes occurred during the fifteen year period from 1767 to 1782. (This chart ends in 1996, and is missing Hurricane Mitch 1998 and Hurricane Katrina 2005.)

    Greta is just relaying the overwhelming scientific consensus. You are telling us that every single scientific organization on the planet is on the wrong side of the numbers?

    Sorry, but you don't know what you're talking about. There is no scientific consensus that current wildfires or hurricanes are unprecedented in frequency or intensity. And there is much evidence to the contrary. Greta is spreading ignorance.
