IPCC: Atlantic Hurricanes/Tropical Cyclones have NOT increased since the late-1800s

The IPCC’s latest report (AR6) continues the claim that human CO2 emissions have caused earth’s climate to warm–no shocker there. But the impacts this has had on Atlantic hurricane/global tropical cyclone activity may come as a surprise, at least to those who were duped by the narrative constructed over the past few decades. As NOAA/GFDL Senior Scientist Tom Knutson explains, global warming has had no impact on either storm frequency nor intensity…

The two most frequently asked questions on global warming and hurricanes are the following:

1) What changes in hurricane activity are expected for the late 21st century?

2) Have humans already caused a detectable increase in Atlantic hurricane activity or global tropical cyclone activity?

Tackling the second questions first, in the northwest Pacific basin, some observations appear to show a poleward shift in the latitude of maximum intensity of tropical cyclones, writes Knutson. And while another new study finds a slight increase in the fraction of tropical cyclone fixes of at least Category 3 intensity both globally and in the Atlantic basin over the past four decades, crucially though, the paper itself states that these changes “have not been confidently attributed to anthropogenic forcing”.

Modeling studies at GFDL/NOAA and the UK Met Office/Hadley Centre (UKMO) have found that a slight increase in tropical storm frequency in the Atlantic basin since the 1970s has been, at least partly, driven by decreases in aerosols from human activity and volcanic forcing. Natural variability is also thought to have been a key factor in the recent changes, and the observed increase since the 1970s isn’t expected to continue into the future. In fact, these same models actually project future decreases in Atlantic tropical storm frequency in response to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations.

There is also evidence for a slowing of tropical cyclone propagation speeds over the continental U.S. over the past century.

But most importantly, within ALL of the findings, there is no strong evidence of increasing trends in U.S. landfalling hurricanes or major hurricanes, or of Atlantic basin-wide hurricanes or major hurricanes since the late 1800s, states Knutson.

In other words, one of the long-standing and key implications of CAGW, which has had ordinary folks concerned for decades now, has categorically been laid to rest: anthropogenic global warming does not lead to an increase in storms, neither in frequency nor intensity.


Tackling the first question —“What changes in hurricane activity are expected for the late 21st century?”— even given the unequivocal debunking of one of the key pillars of the AGW theory, NOAA’s Tom Knutson still goes on to repeat all of the other ‘usual suspects’, and he blindly contradicts some of the aforementioned findings along the way, too:

Sea level rise will apparently mean increased coastal flooding for the tropical cyclones that do occur.

Tropical cyclone rainfall rates are projected to increase in the future due to more atmospheric moisture content.

Globally, ‘they’ still expect tropical cyclone intensities to increase (by 1 to 10% according to model projections for 2 degree Celsius of global warming–bit of a range there). But “storm size responses to anthropogenic warming are uncertain.”

And lastly, the global proportion of tropical cyclones that reach very intense (Category 4 and 5) levels is projected to increase due to anthropogenic warming over the 21st century. However, and immediately contradicting itself, the “consensus” also states that there is less confidence in future projections of the global number of Category 4 and 5 storms, since most modeling studies project a decrease in the global frequency of all tropical cyclones combined.

Confused grunt

Given the disastrous track record of NOAA, NASA and the IPCC, combined with the fact that these bodies are still publicly contradicting themselves at every turn (cries for help?), I am confidently filing the above projections under ‘politicized dogma soon to go the same way as the hurricane intensification theory’ — that is to say, thoroughly debunked by real-world data.

Just give it time…

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).

Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.

    Current major cyclone forecast: Hurricane hitting Cabo today, wind chop 18′ every 9 seconds. Typhoon hitting NE Taiwan Saturday, wind waves offshore 30′ every 11 seconds. Hurricane Larry hitting Nova Scotia tomorrow, wind waves 44′ every 14 seconds.

    Super Typhoon Haiyan 2013 was from alignment/solar flare. It hit N America and the cold front was intense. The storm went through EU and most of Siberia almost to the Pacific and the low shot due North on Thanksgiving over the N Pole into Canada and into USA bringing a cold front that froze cattle in situ. The storm had been renamed several times by then, winter storm bla bla bla.
    It shot North in Siberia because it ran into another cyclone heading in the same direction up off Kamchatka.. It was in the middle of the night when I was tracking it and I was in awe. I have Sat pics saved from the event on my old pute with XP including solar flare pics along with hundreds of other pics of crap like that nobody gives a frying fruck about.

      Hi Dirk. IT would be great to see some further references of solar flare-tropical storm genesis.
      Great to read your personal account of correlation.

    The IPCC throw this out to give credence to their other garbage.
    The oldest trick in PR.

    Will Hurricane Larry spike Greenland’s SMB Sunday/Monday?

    In the IPCC Paris Statement it says unambiguously that between 1918 and 2018…a longer period than before 1970….. and not chosen for fraudulent reasons, that all types of storms inc. tornadoes, hurricane, cyclones , typhoons etc freekin cet are far less numerous now and far less powerful. And cause far less damage and have resulted in far less $ and lives destruction. Same goes for drought’s and fires…so why are we hysterically told otherwise by the Chicken Little freaks?
    And re latest space age 1970’s climate change malarkey, If they cant get tropical storms to show a higher intensity after 1970, a period of time where the temps were quite a bit cooler than the 1930-40’s and now due to natural cycles, then they have no argument worth sun dried turds.
    Grow a brain or learn to read more widely, either will show you what a fool you are should you believe the vile leftist propaganda……..
