Read the Full Article
'Statistically evaluated tornado frequencies since 1954. The year 2013 ranks near the bottom. More than three quarters of all years saw more tornado activity than 2013. -- In 2012 tornadoes were relatively rare, as no year saw fewer tornadoes than 2012 since tornado recording began in 1954. 2012 was the absolute low-point of the officially recorded tornado development of the past 60 years...Even though the average global temperature has risen half of a degree Celsius over the last 40 years, tornadoes have not become more frequent. Rather the contrary has occurred; they have decreased somewhat.'
