Talk about hedging your bets: Climate change means LESS hurricanes for the U.S. “by the next century”

What the hell does that even mean?  We’ve been told over and over and over again that climate change means stronger and more numerous hurricanes.  But wait!  The U.S. hasn’t had a CAT3 or higher hurricane since 2005.  So how do the fear-mongers square that round peg?  

By NOW coming up with the theory that climate change actually means FEWER hurricanes will hit the U.S.  and just to make sure that their new theory is correct, they add the caveat “by the next century”.  Well you couldn’t cover your asses any better if you tried.

Climate change will produce greater and stronger hurricanes.

But they’re not going to hit the U.S.

At least not by the next century, we think.

And just in case the U.S. is hit with a CAT4 or CAT5 hurricane sometime in the next couple of years, we can fall back on our original prediction.

Rinse and repeat.   

And the bobblehead lemmings just keep marching over that Global Warming / Climate Change / Climate Disruption / Carbon Pollution cliff. — DQ

Climate Change Means Less Hurricanes For US, New Study Suggests

Green News — September 3, 2013

Climate change means less hurricanes for the United States, according to a new study published on Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The new study is a drastic change from previous predictions that climate change could make hurricanes like Superstorm Sandy last year While the intensity of the storms.may not change, the winds during hurricane season likely will, reports National Geographic.

Using computer simulations, the authors predicted that warming caused by greenhouse gases could redirect atmospheric winds, steering hurricanes away from the East Coast instead of toward them. The changes could come as early as next century, according to the authors. The predicted changes would make it less likely for a storm to follow the same or a similar path as Hurricane Sandy, which devastated much of the northeastern seaboard when it made landfall last year.

Sandy’s unusual track was caused by a rare interaction between the jet stream and a high-pressure weather system to the north. That interaction steered Sandy almost due West as it hit in New Jersey. Sandy’s track was the most perpendicular of any hurricane on record.   The Guardian notes that the odds of a storm like Hurricane Sandy are already incredibly low. The event is predicted once in 700 years.  Continue reading full article, here…..
