‘Least extreme U.S. weather year ever?’ 2013 shatters the record for fewest U.S. tornadoes — 15% lower than previous record — 2013 also had the fewest U.S. forest fires since 1984

Much to the chagrin of man-made global warming activists who want to tie every weather event to so called ‘global weirding’, 2013 has turned out to be one of the “least extreme” weather years in U.S. history.  See: New Study: ’2013 ranks as one of the least extreme U.S. weather years ever’– Many bad weather events at ‘historically low levels’

‘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.’

Extreme Heat: The number of 100 degree days may ‘turn out to be the lowest in about 100 years of records’

Hurricanes: ‘We are currently in the longest period (8 years) since the Civil War Era without a major hurricane strike in the US (i.e., category 3, 4 or 5)’ ( last major hurricane to strike the US was Hurricane Wilma in 2005)

The latest data show both tornadoes and now wildfires in dramatic decline.

Morano: ’Global warming promoters have essentially said many bad things will happen due to global warming and guess what, bad things happen all the time so there is no end to their alleged ‘proof’ of global warming induced extreme weather. Any weather event anywhere on the globe. and say ‘well global warming made it worse’ - ‘We have Sen. Barbara Boxer, head of our Senate environmental committee, go down to the senate floor on the day we had an outbreak of tornadoes in Oklahoma and claim this is why she advocates a carbon tax. As though a carbon tax would have prevented these tornadoes! This is medieval witchcraft in modern times.’ - ‘You almost feel sorry for warmists,. but it is the holiday season, so let’s be charitable to them and say they are just flat out wrong.’

LA Times: ‘US wildfire burn acreage far below average’ – ‘Among the quietest of the past decade’ - ‘A wildfire season that began with dire warnings that dry conditions had set the stage for a year of flames across California and the West turned out to be among the quietest of the past decade. Although 2013 was marked by two high-profile blazes, one in California and the other in Arizona, nationally the total wildfire acreage, 4.15 million, is far below the 10-year average of 6.8 million acres.’

    But!!! But!!!! Global Warming, they said all hell was breaking loose.

      Just wait. Won’t be long before the global warming loons will be on here claiming that fewer storms and more storms are proof of man made global warming. Just like warmer weather and cooler weather is proof of man made global warming.

        Just watched a History Channel production on “The Little Ice Age”. First hour and half was factual. They even talked about the Medieval Warm Period which Michael Mann hid in his “Hockey Stick” graph.

        Then in the last 1/2 hour or so they interviewed the “Climate experts” who said, “Yup, the little ice age ended because of the Industrial Revolution/coal burning etc. These experts then went on to say, wait for this, “that global cooling will cause by global warming”.

        Got that? So, if man causes global warming then he causes global warming. On the other hand if man causes global cooling then that will cause global warming.

        Here’s a handy little study guide so 5th grade students get the picture, guided by a moron government school “Teacher” who will “Guide” the students to the “correct” conclusion.

          How about this? Greenland is called Greenland because it was green when the Vikings settled there 1000 years ago.

          • KaptKan1 .

            And I, for one, wish that the earth WERE warming overall; it makes for a better environment for humans than an ice age. Greenland and SIberia and most of Canada and even the Antartic would become farm, forest and pasture land. I fail to see the downside.

            THERE IS A BIG PROBLEM WITH FARMING AT THE SOUTH POLE .

            THE ICE OVER THAT CONTINENT IS 2 MILES THICK !
            IT IS SO HEAVY THAT IT HAS LITERALLY SMASHED THE LAND IN
            THE CENTER DOWN BELOW SEA LEVEL .

            IF IT WERE TO MELT , THAT VOLUME OF ICE WOULD RAISE
            THE SEA LEVEL WORLDWIDE & MOST OF THAT CONTINENT
            WOULD BE UNDERWATER .

            “Chill,” bro and turn off that caps lock.

            Iceland is called Iceland because it was icy when Vikings settled there 1000 years ago. And now it is warm enough for people! Iceland is the opposite of Green land.

      Well it is Financially and Politically?
      But cheer up at least you will have Obama Care after your $4000 deductible and you co pay!

    Fewer tornadoes… Climate Change. More tornadoes… Global Warming. If you don’t believe, you’re a heretic.

    • Chicago720

      correction… if you don’t believe it, you’re a flat-earther, a moron, a heretic, and probably a Jesus freak – just for good measure.

      • FusterCluck

        You forgot akin to being a “Birther”

    • KaptKan1 .

      It’s all called being a “denier” now. This implies that they have Truth and those who disagree are denying that Truth. And the irony is that they hate all (other) religions.

  • libwithIQ

    Damn that man made global warming for causing all the extreme weather conditions!!! Wait. Less tornadoes? Less hurricanes? Cooler weather? More arctic Ice? How can that be?
