So Berkeley, it is already unbelievable and not worth reading. Probably based on statistical analysis of past events and models (all of which are wrong). Doesn't seem to explain why there have been no EF-5 hurricanes since 2013 when there SHOULD be because they are all getting stronger! Obviously no powerful hurricane developed over-night. Wildfires are decreasing as recorded by satellite, contrary to Michael's claim.

So let's see Michael make an actual prediction, rather than give a play-by-play hind-sight guess. After a hurricane occurs, you say it had 15% more rain on average... I'd like to see him make that prediction before it happens.

Such a joke, seeing that hurricanes are not increasing globally, among other various occurrences. They would be hard pressed to explain their theories and allow the scientific community to see their methods. Obviously it is all a secret. I would guess that "more and more certainty" means 2% instead of 1%. Unfortunate for Michael, heat waves did occur in the pre-industrial world.... even worse than today since global temperatures were naturally warmer as the theory goes.
Sounds like weather to me :biggrin: ......
The recent lack of EF5s fits into a trend toward fewer of these most intense tornadoes in recent years. However, because of their rarity and some changes in the way tornadoes are rated, experts aren’t convinced of how meaningful this trend is............

To begin, it’s difficult to draw inferences from events that happen infrequently. There have been 59 F/EF5 tornadoes in the modern record, which began in 1950. An annual average of EF5 tornadoes yields just shy of one per year. But violent tornadoes can come in swarms. In the years when you have one, there is a decent chance that there’s more than one. For instance, 2011 had six across three days in April and May.


In addition, the EF scale has limitations, because tornadoes are rated on what they hit, not what they miss. In other words, if a violent tornado plows an open field, it wouldn’t earn the same high rating that it would if it a leveled a town. Ratings on today’s EF scale for tornadoes are based on 28 potential damage indicators, which range from small buildings to large buildings, and include other assorted objects..........

Long pauses in these mammoth twisters are not uncommon because of their infrequency. Over the past seven decades, there have been seven lengthy streaks of 1,000 days or more without tornadoes of EF5 intensity...........

Even so, Harold Brooks, senior research scientist with the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory, urged caution in analyzing violent tornado trends. He told The Washington Post that “the most reliable” accounting of tornadoes includes all twisters rated EF1 or higher. “Counts of events stronger than that have been affected by changes in reporting over the years,” he wrote.

In the past, he said, it was arguably easier for a tornado to earn a high rating. “Pre-1978 tornadoes were rated retrospectively by summer students based on the text description of the damage,” he wrote. [icon_lol2.gif]

In addition, when the F scale changed to the EF scale in 2007, Brooks said, changes were made “in what is needed to get the highest rating,” which makes comparisons over time difficult.

Changes in the sturdiness and the engineering of buildings may also have affected how ratings have evolved.

“It is incredibly difficult to consider ALL possible construction outcomes,” Stephanie Pilkington, an assistant professor of engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, wrote to The Post. “Building standards have improved greatly since the 90s with concern for wind.”

The Great Coral Reef is bouncing back even more! Cyclones have died down allowing the reefs to naturally repair.

So, BC wants to sue "Big oil" because of climate change.
Is Horgan egging them on, even after his failed attempt at a law suit against TMX?

Just more virtue signaling from ones driving to their protests in an ICE vehicle.
Stop coal powered electricity(in the world) and you stop about 40% of the CO2 emissions.
ICE vehicles will be phased out over time, no doubt about it, just not fast enough for the unrealistic with blinders on.

This has nothing to do with climate, but everything to do with poisons that affects life on earth. I'd rather governments spend some money to phase out PFOAs and various poisonous chemicals, instead of fighting beneficial CO2.

I've done my part. I don't buy no-stick PFOA pans or products. There are lots of options around this. It also goes without saying that 4pg/L is a very small concentration... you can always trust the EPA to exaggerate everything under the democrats. Either way, maybe say goodbye to Teflon, and Gore-Tex. I never buy Teflon pans... yuck. It is one thing bird owners never do.

Here is some good info on Fluorine based chemicals in the environment. Of course, no one really knows what levels are actually toxic rather than potentially toxic.

A prominent marine biologist originally claimed ocean acidification was changing fish behavior and limiting coral recovery. Thank goodness for the science whistleblowers, or deniers as some would say, who uncovered her science fabrications.
that marine ecologist Danielle Dixson committed fabrication and falsification in work on fish behavior and coral reefs. The university is seeking the retraction of three of Dixson’s papers and “has notified the appropriate federal agencies,” a spokesperson says.

safe drinking water does have to do with climate because if the rain stops falling in large parts because of it like europe is now seeing, the natural cycle of water filtering stops .


your right about the those frying pans , if they get to hot they let off nasty stuff. :up:

In the 200-plus years since the industrial revolution began, the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has increased due to human actions. During this time, the pH of surface ocean waters has fallen by 0.1 pH units. This might not sound like much, but the pH scale is logarithmic, so this change represents approximately a 30 percent increase in acidity.
The ocean absorbs about 30% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) that is released in the atmosphere. As levels of atmospheric CO2 increase from human activity such as burning fossil fuels (e.g., car emissions) and changing land use (e.g., deforestation), the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by the ocean also increases. When CO2 is absorbed by seawater, a series of chemical reactions occur resulting in the increased concentration of hydrogen ions. This process has far reaching implications for the ocean and the creatures that live there.
Carbon dioxide, which is naturally in the atmosphere, dissolves into seawater. Water and carbon dioxide combine to form carbonic acid (H2CO3), a weak acid that breaks (or “dissociates”) into hydrogen ions (H+) and bicarbonate ions (HCO3-).

Because of human-driven increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, there is more CO2 dissolving into the ocean. The ocean’s average pH is now around 8.1offsite link, which is basic (or alkaline), but as the ocean continues to absorb more CO2, the pH decreases and the ocean becomes more acidic.
