    Westwall- haven't you heard? The first year of the latest 100 year projection calls for decreased hurricane activity. And I am quite sure the first year of next year's 100 year forecast will also be accurate, after the fact.

    Wasn't it that the weather becomes MORE ERRATIC, rather than just more weather?

    Supposedly more, and more powerful storms. The reality has been the opposite.

    More storms and more powerful storms AND fewer and less powerful storms...its all due to the magical gas and the will of Gaia.

    Update: June 28, 2017

    Just over two weeks ago the polar jet increased in size and shifted to the south a full 10 deg Lat.

    This fall time shift was a full two months early and creates wind shear near the equator. Also the equatorial heat pumps in both the Atlantic and Pacific have gone cold dropping about 3.7 deg C. The loss in ocean surface heat and the increase in mid level wind shear is going to keep many storms from forming and those that do will be weak and short lived..

    Another epic AGW fail...

    Hurricanes and typhoons/cyclones come and go every year.

    They are cause by Africa.

    If we could sink Africa these storms would cease to exist.
