An analysis of the most comprehensive datasets on hurricanes show hurricane activity has decreased the past 25 years. Alarmists exposed as frauds…
Today we look at an analysis by data analyst expert Zoe Phin here of the largest collection of historic hurricane data available: IBTrACS (International Best Track Archive for Climate Stewardship), kept by the NOAA.
The dataset archives 13,545 storms going back to 1842, from a total of 14 agencies.
First Zoe notes that it is definitely true the number of detected hurricanes has increased – but this is mainly due to modern sensing technology.
To get a good picture on total hurricane energy, Zoe counted the hours spent in certain wind speed categories:
Cyclic – no upward trend!
What follows are her results. Category 1 is cyclic/no-trend:
Category 2 had increased, but has dropped the last 25 years:
Category 3 increased before 1995, but has been dropping since:
Category 4 is cyclic/no-trend, dropping modestly since 1995:
Category 5 has decreased overall, and has been flat the past 25 years:
10-yr CMA means 10-year centered moving average.
“Where is that extra energy for hurricanes?,” Zoe asks.
CO2 is supposed to be causing warming, which in turn has been claimed to “supercharge” hurricanes. But the data show it isn’t true and that it’s just bad journalism based on junk science.
Expert data analyst Zoe also found there has been a decrease in hours spent with winds above 20 knots during the satellite era.
Clearly there’s been no extra storm energy, which climate models said we would get from carbon dioxide. Clearly we can all sleep sound at night, knowing full well CO2 isn’t making the planet stormier.
