(Mother Nature Network)   If global warming is so real, then why did we see fewer tornadoes in America this year? "We are approaching a theoretical minimum in the annual tornado count for the modern era"   (mnn.com) divider line 110

Yeah, we had a continental-wide heat-wave and drought this summer instead. So obviously this season disproves global warming.

ciberido: give me doughnuts: ciberido: Singleballtheory: I saw Tornado Coont back in '84 during their "Breaking the Wind" tour. Shame they broke up.

You're lucky. Not many people got to see them play live. It was a whirlwind tour.

Didn't Spinal Tap sue them over the tour name?

No, it happened at the same time, but the lawsuit was really about Tornado Coont 's new album, Smell the Dove.


The real problem there though was that they tried to use a much blacker cover than Spinal Tap's.

That Guy...From That Show!: There are models available that predict every type of result. Then, when something happens, people go and hunt down the models that "predicted" what happened when it's to their advantage to "prove" that they're right.


That's not how science works.

Sun activity has dropped significantly and the Earth has been cooling for over a decade. Even the environmentalists finally couldn't cover that up any more, which is why they switched to "Climate Change" and not "Global Warming" in their propaganda.

Truth be told everyone is wrong. This planet has never had a perfectly circular orbit, the Sun has never put out an absolutely constant amount of light, radiation and heat, and there are additional outside influences like asteroids and comets slinging about that could raid the dice game at any moment. Simply put the thing deserves a lot more invested in study before we can safely conclude anything.
But there are things we can do, like becoming more efficient with our use of fossil fuels and gradually weening ourselves off them that accomplish multiple goals (less pollution, less dependence on non-renewable resources) that we can move forward with regardless of the outcome on climate research.


Well, unless you've done some kind of major review of the current state of climate change literature, with some good analysis of the confidence intervals in all their statistics, I really don't think you can make that claim. I mean, do you really think the models scientists use don't account for variations in the sun?

This link explains how scientists account for these factors.

I don't know-depends on where you're at....

4/27/11 missed by a F5 by 1000 feet.
3/2/12 didn't get missed by a large F3.
2013?

However worse than the tornado is the insurance bureaucracy and the absolute worse thing is contractors and their subs.
Also hardly anyone in this country wants to properly learn a trade and be good at it -85% of subs are hacks!
If something ever happens to your house you better be there everyday

Um, that was my point guys....it's quite telling you didn't notice it. Notice that I said "people" NOT "Scientists.

People go and look for evidence to validate their beliefs and discount opposing information.

In Science there are methods to work around this problem. There's no shame in you not knowing this, very few people do and it's easy to know who is and who isn't ignorant about it.
