please, not the weather channel...that makes their money hyping weather

Since their prediction that hurricanes will increase did not pan out...now it's stronger and slower

For over 70 years, they have not gotten even one prediction right... even an idiot would not bet on that horse

Those are facts, try twisting and bending them as much as you want, but those are the facts. Stop the lying and using scare tactics. Push green technology for economic reasons and cleaner beaches, streets and air.


Stop making ridiculous claims like, "OMG WE HAD A HURRICANE BECAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE, CHANGE NOW OR TOMORROW WON'T COME! FLORIDA WILL BE 100 FT UNDER WATER IN 30 YEARS. CAT 6 STORMS WILL OCCUR HALF THE YEAR" or "LOOK AT CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA, CLIMATE CHANGE IS CAUSING PEOPLE TO START FIRES ON PURPOSE & BY ACCIDENT"


Also in the early to mid 1900s we saw lots of cat 4 storms, the last two storms are not something we never experienced before.
It's also a fact that a Category 4 hurricane hit Florida in each of the last two years and that both experienced rapid intensification. It's also a fact that the oceans surrounding Florida are much warmer than in the past. Again, Hurricane Michael had the fourth most powerful winds to ever hit the continental U.S. Hurricane Irma in 2017 was the most powerful Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever, according to this article, which notes that for three days Irma sustained winds of 185 mph. If Irma had made landfall in Miami rather than Cuba, not even the man-made climate change science deniers would be spreading this current batch of "Big Lie" denier propaganda.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Irma

Hurricane Matthew in 2016 also was a category 5 hurricane, but it only strafed the Florida coast.

The current denier logic is akin to arguing that the neighborhood now is full of large, deadly gunfights, but your family hasn't been hit yet (except by Hurricane Michael), so there is nothing of worry.

The many denier posters in this thread are basically arguing with the scientists who actually study and model hurricanes, not with the posters who are presenting their findings.

Anyone interested in the future of Florida hurricanes, simply watch the Miami episode of the PBS "Sinking Cities" series; it makes the case that rapid hurricane intensification, as with Hurricane Michael, is a new reality for Florida hurricanes. It's interesting that the Miami Herald didn't even review the Miami episode based on a search; the several serious issues raised in that show are apparently being ignored.

Hurricanes were worse and more frequent in the past, fact. There is nothing FL can do to stop hurricanes from happening, fact.

Hurricane's are Mother Natures' way of eradicating ill-advised and poor construction too close to the waters edge...and inland to a lesser extent. I'm glad they are curently on the decline nonetheless. The Ohio fear mongerer has failed again.

The classic..and funniest....."God has a sense of humor"......gotcha

Florida went through a 2 year period of more than normal hurricanes...
...all the climate scientists and hurricane experts jumped on it...and started predicting it's the "new normal"
and they published all these "sciencey" articles and papers showing...and proving.... how right they were

we will have more and stronger hurricanes...new normal......blah blah blah...more and more dangerous
..more people are going to die...new normal.....blah blah

...we didn't have another major hurricane for over 10 years...over a decade...and it's now known as "the hurricane drought"

Only in America do have so much nay-saying of climate change theory put forth by around 80% of the world's most brilliant scientists, but find prediction of whether or not Spring is arriving each year via a groundhog's behavior completely acceptable. No wonder the rest of the industrialized world points and laughs...

Let's face it...there's not a lot of jobs..where not only can you be consistently wrong....but the more outrageous your predictions were...that were wrong....the more famous you are

The only other one that I can think of are those TV economists....
