OPEN Letter To The Bureau Of Meteorology – Tropical Cyclone Trends

Graph showing the number of severe and non-severe tropical cyclones from 1970–2011 which have occurred in the Australian region. Severe tropical cyclones are those which show a minimum central pressure less than 970 hPa.

Dear BoM,

I have been a keen observer of weather and climate for well over a climate point (42 years)!

The chaotic system of climate and “climate change” is ever fascinating. Though, today the ‘chaos’ has been replaced by an unhealthy polarization of “the science”, all too often determined by belief, politics, and ideology. Sadly, dogma has trumped empirical evidence, corrupting the scientific method.

That said, I am seeking from you an updated version of the cyclone trends graph which ends at 2011. The BoM site has excellent data up to 2017 to complete the series. Is there a reason why the data has not been translated to the current graph? I would be happy to work on getting it up to date if resources are limited!

As a start, there is a written record from 2012-2015 here: http://www.bom.gov.au/cyclone/history/index.shtml

However, this record does not quite match the said graph 1969 – 2011. Methodology for what qualifies the graphed record would be appreciated.

Sincerely,

Jamie Spry (Melbourne, Australia)

    Hurricane,Cyclone,Typhoon and back in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina devistated New Orleans Al Bore claimed the next few hurricanes would be far worst and Nothing and Hurricane Sandy was a bust and Al Bore wonders why no one wants to watch his putrid Movie no big long lines like there was when Star Wars hit the big screen 40 years ago and the Truth to Power just proves Al Bore is a total enviroemntalists nutcase
