What If Grover Cleveland’s Hurricanes Happened Now?

Real Science

During President Grover Cleveland’s tenure, and unbelievable 26 hurricanes made landfall in the US, including one with 155 MPH winds and a 15 foot storm surge – which wiped Indianola, Texas off the map.

By contrast, Obama has had only 3 hurricanes.

Chronological List of All Hurricanes

If that happened now, Democrats would be screaming to high heaven that this is all the proof we need to massively raise taxes and force socialism on the US.

Anyone with an IQ over 10 should be able to figure out that climate has nothing to do with taxes or failed economic theory.

Anti-information in climate models

Watts Up With That?

Climate History: Cato Boffins Discovered “Anti-information”

By Patrick J. Michaels and Paul C. “Chip” Knappenberger

While doing some historical studies in preparation for an article in Cato’s Regulation magazine, we found that we  once discovered the information equivalent of antimatter, namely, “anti-information”.

This breakthrough came  when we were reviewing the first “National Assessment” of climate change impacts in the United States in the 21st century, published by the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) in 2000.  The Assessments are mandated by the Global Change Research Act of 1990.  According to that law, they are, among other things, for “the Environmental Protection Agency for use in the formulation of a coordinated national policy on global climate change…”

1886 : America’s Busiest Hurricane Season

Real Science

In 1886, Cuba and the US got slammed by one hurricane after another.

In the month of June 1886 alone, the US was hit by three category 2 hurricanes. Four more hurricanes hit that summer, including two major hurricanes – one of which wiped the town of Indianola, Texas off the map. CO2 was below 300 PPM at the time.

By contrast, the US has had only three hurricane strikes since Obama took office, none of which were above category 1. Obama’s teleprompter whines endlessly about CO2 driven hurricanes, despite the fact that he has had the fewest hurricanes of any president.

Bill Nye the clueless weather guy – flattened by tornado data

Ambulance chaser Nye. Shameful.

Watts Up With That?

“Yid with Lid” ran this scathing headline (in the screencap below) yesterday, and pointed out why Nye just doesn’t have a clue. The tornado data following eviscerates Nye’s claims, who seems unable (or maybe unwilling) to Google his own claims for accuracy before bloviating them on CNN.


The screencap source at “Yid with Lid” is here, and the article goes on to explain and prove the headline correct. But, while Nye is taunting Inhofe, his own claims go up in flames with a simple examination of data.

When Nye Tweeted Monday he’d be on CNN with Piers Morgan, I gave him some advice:

Why Am I Still Wearing My Down Jacket?

Real Science

I normally take the dogs out for a hike in or near the foothills early in the morning and late in the evening. The past few days I have had to wear a down jacket – as we head into Memorial Day weekend.

Barbara Boxer say that global warming is destroying the US, and that we need to immediately confiscate taxpayer money and freedom, in order to avert an out of control heating catastrophe.

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) photographed these striking views of Pavlof Volcano on May 18, 2013. The oblique perspective from the ISS reveals the three dimensional structure of the ash plume, which is often obscured by the top-down view of most remote sensing satellites.

Situated in the Aleutian Arc about 625 miles (1,000 kilometers) southwest of Anchorage, Pavlof began erupting on May 13, 2013. The volcano jetted lava into the air and spewed an ash cloud 20,000 feet (6,000 meters) high. When photograph ISS036-E-2105 (top) was taken, the space station was about 475 miles south-southeast of the volcano (49.1°…
