Climate change and before the storms

Print Article

As the U.S. hurricane season has begun, we can prepare ourselves for the hysteria of the climate alarmists who will exploit any hurricane or storm that strikes either coast. It will appear as if history began with their birth. Joe Bastardi (“The Climate Chronicles”) has an informative article on CFACT which presents an analysis of hurricanes which have hit from 1821 to now.

Major hurricanes have hit or threatened New England since an estimated CAT 4 in 1821. All with an intensity greater than Sandy (2012). A major storm hit the Virginia Tidewater in 1933 and flooded Washington, D.C. In 1954, two major hurricanes (Carol, Edna) hit the northeast in eleven days.

Florida has had its’ share of hurricanes worse than Andrew (1992). In 1960, Hurricane Donna hit southwest Florida and worked its way up the East Coast to Virginia. Five hurricanes hit Florida In the 1940s with that which hit Ft Lauderdale worse than Katrina (2005).

Then there is Texas. Records extend all the way back to Spanish conquistadors. The Galveston hurricane of 1900 is termed the “deadliest” in U.S. history. Before Houston there was Indianola which was devastated in 1875, rebuilt and devastated again in 1886.

Joe’s point is that it has been awhile since the East Coast has had a direct hit of a CAT 4 or 5, but it could happen, again. Opportunistic, misleading hysteria about climate change should be suspect.
