Weather related disasters have been way down in the US this year compared to other years which points in the face of Al Gore’s prediction that global warming would be occurring and with it extreme weather events.
Weather is a normal part of our world and changes in weather are natural and normal and related to things like solar radiation far more than the CO2 trace gas.
Our electricity service should not be taxed on the basis that the clean natural trace gas known as CO2 is warming the planet. In reality CO2 is plant food and needed for our survival and that of the planets.
We encourage you to not believe the new hype about CO2 gases causing extreme weather events…in reality weather catastrophes for 2013 are way down.
There have been many forecasts in the news in recent years predicting more and more extreme weather-related events in the US, but for 2013 that prediction has been way off the mark. Whether you’re talking about tornadoes, wildfires, extreme heat or hurricanes, the good news is that weather-related disasters in the US are all way down this year compared to recent years and, in some cases, down to historically low levels.
To begin with, the number of tornadoes in the US this year is on pace to be the lowest total since 2000 and it may turn out to be the lowest total in several decades. The table below lists the number of tornadoes in the US for this year (through 10/17) and also for each year going back to 2000.
