Recently NTZ published a post on a study which examined Vietnam tropical cyclone activity.
The study found that for Vietnam “none of the meteorological trends such as frequency, central pressure, wind speed, or storm intensity show any significant increase or decrease over the last four decades.”
But such a trend is not only seen for Vietnam, but virtually the entire Pacific. For example Japanese climate blogger Kirye compiled the stats on Japan typhoon landfalls and here we see they have not risen significantly, and the number of typhoons formed has even fallen:
Number of typhoons formed: . Number of typhoons landings in Japan:
At his latest Saturday Summary, meteorologist Joe Bastardi shows that this year’s hurricane season is off to a slow start as conditions in the main development zone will remain unfavorable for at least another week.
All of this tells us that global warming alarmists’ warnings of more frequent and intense storms have been completely WRONG so far.
Hurricane frequency falling
Now we look further at the statistics for global tropical storm activity from expert Dr. Ryan Maue here:

Looking at total global tropical storms, Dr. Maue’s data show no trend in close to 50 years:
The next time someone claims tropical cyclones have gotten worse and more frequent, you might want to tell them to look at the data and to stop parroting alarmist nonsense spread by the media.
