For The First Time Since 1969, No US Tornadoes Reported In March

cycloneThe US tornado count for March 2015? Zero. That’s right, so far this month there have been no tornadoes reported in the U.S. — this is only the second time this has happened since 1950, according to Weather Channel meteorologist Greg Forbes.  “We are in uncharted territory with respect to lack of severe weather,” Greg Carbin, a meteorologist at NOAA, said in a statement. “This has never happened in the record of [Storm Prediction Center] watches dating back to 1970.” –Michael Bastasch, Daily Caller, 18 March 2015

So there you have it, despite what projections there may be for the future, and remember projections are not reality until they have been shown to be accurate, the consensus regarding Cyclone Pam is that there is no clear evidence for a link between it and climate change. This means that any responsible scientist would not assume such a link exists, as it hasn’t been proven. The answer must not be ‘it’s difficult to say’ – the only scientifically valid answer is ‘there is no link.’ –David Whitehouse, Global Warming Policy Forum, 17 March 2015

The global Accumulated Cyclone Energy shows no trend, since satellite monitoring began in the 1970’s, and the frequency of major hurricanes is not increasing. Even the IPCC admits there is no evidence that intense cyclones have been increasing. It appears that making up numbers as you go along, and making claims that are negated by a few simple checks, have become the norm for climate scientists. John Humphrys seemed to suspect that he was being lied to, but was so poorly briefed that he was unable to effectively challenge Tim Palmer. Honest scientists must be pulling their hair out at the damage being done to their good name. –Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That, 17 March 2015

Despite reports of utter devastation six days after Cyclone Pam pummeled the impoverished South Pacific island nation, Vanuatu appears to be providing something of a lesson in how to survive a category 5 storm. The United Nations  says the official death toll is 11 and Prime Minister Joe Natuman told Reuters it would not rise significantly. “Hurricanes or cyclones are not a new thing, since when people started living in these islands maybe about 5,000 years ago this type of event occurs every year,” said Natuman. “I think also we are now more organized in terms of our disaster management.” –Stephen Coates, Reuters, 19 March 2015

    Let’s just hope that March exits like a lamb, and not a lion.

      Australia had two cyclones hit the continent on the very same day on two separate occasions this past month. Now THAT is unprecedented.
      And they weren’t even the big ones that hit the region.

        Provide the source drewski.

        2 hit the continent on the very same day on two separate occasions?

        Not according the the records and names.

        Lam made landfall on the Feb 19th, Marcia on the 20th. I know they probably didn’t teach you this in school but the 19th and the 20th are not “the very same day.”

        Olwyn made landfall March 13th, and Nathan just made landfall after being downgraded in strength.

        So, two on the very same day on two separate occasions? Not according to the records.

        As to your “unprecedented” claim, maybe if you pulled your head out once in awhile and talked to people other than your alarmist buddies you’d have some friends who have lived in Australia for several decades who can tell you just how “unprecedented” it is or isn’t.

        Cyclones don’t follow a time clock drewski, two may hit within hours or days of one another or there may be none at all. Nothing is “unprecedented” about it other than in the minds of little drama queens.

    Now if we came across an alarmist article claiming such and such happened in Australia and responded by saying “Well in the US nothing like that happened.”

    Well, we know from past experience that drewski would go on his rant that the US isn’t the world, that’s just weather, etc. etc.

    Yet we have an article talking about the US and what does drewski do? “Australia…”

    Damn boy, learn how to read.

      yet I posted a warmist article about what Drewski is talking about that says the exact opposite of what he claimed, so even that little diversion failed miserably. lol

      so how can one take his claim of increasing cyclone activity statement seriously when even his own side is contradicting him?

      [i]On Monday, when a New Delhi court granted Pachauri protection from arrest until tomorrow, his lawyers told the court their client was ill. A Times of India news story quotes Sidharth Luthra:

      We have submitted all the medical records regarding his illness which include cardiac issues and UTI [[i]urinary tract infection[/i]].[/i]

      There are several ways that fecal bacteria can get into the urinary tract:

      [b]Poor bathroom hygiene[/b]

      [b]Sex acts involving the anus[/b]

      [b]Swimming in unsanitary water[/b]

      He obviously has hygiene issues, and we all know how dirty the Ganges River is, but ever notice how happy he and Al Gore appear together?

    Gee, I don’t know, Gator. Maybe if Big Al was blind drunk and Pachauri was the last guy at the Climate Change Conference. He’s a double-bagger for sure.

    Well, he’s no climate scientist, but he is clueless!

    [i]For 13 years, Rajendra Pachauri was the man in charge of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – the United Nations body responsible for assessing the state of the world’s climate.

    You would expect someone entrusted with this important responsibility to be conscientious and professional. Most of all, you would expect him to be a stickler about following the rules.

    But Pachauri is the public figure who never fails to disappoint. Currently facing a criminal investigation over alleged sexual misconduct at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) that he has led since the 1980s, New Delhi police are now accusing Pachauri of bail violations.

    [b]The crimes for which he is being investigated are so serious that, once a person is taken into police custody, bail is not an option.[/b] Last month, Pachauri’s aggressive legal team secured what is known as “anticipatory” or “interim” bail on his behalf – a measure that temporarily prevents his arrest.

    One of his bail conditions is that he not have contact with anyone at TERI. Another requires him to cooperate with the police.

    But [b]police recently told a judge that Pachauri has been “influencing witnesses” and “hampering investigations.” According to the Economic Times, police say Pachauri is “creating documents” for his defence and [is] still in touch with Teri officials who “at the behest of Pachauri are not co-operating” with the police.[/b]

    A hot-off-the-press article in India’s Business Standard reports that a prosecutor told the court that, [b]when police interviewed one of Pachauri’s assistants, they discovered the assistant had visited Pachauri earlier and conferred with him about what to say. According to the prosecutor, IT experts are not being allowed to enter TERI offices and even if allowed inside, no cooperation is extended to them and they are deliberately being made to wait[/b].

    Accused by a 29-year-old TERI employee of sexual assault, harassment, and stalking, Pachauri has denied all allegations against him. He says he is the victim of a conspiracy involving “unknown cyber criminals” who are trying to harm him due to his climate activities.

    [b]Police have reportedly told the court there is no evidence to support Pachauri’s claims that he was hacked[/b]. In this regard, the HuffingtonPost story reports that his lawyers subsequently
    told the court that his email had not been hacked, but that he had shared the password with several people, who could have sent inappropriate emails to the complainant on his behalf.

    Last month, an Australian newspaper reported that, [b]when Pachauri handed over his mobile phone to the police, “memory cards were missing[/b].[/i]

    SOP for the IPCC, is illegal in the real world.
