    Ooops. The Deniers are very quiet

    Since the deniers think that anything not affecting the US is not real, they are missing the most massive cyclone (hurricane for the uneducated) ever. It is about the hit the Phillipines. "quiet hurricane season" is really too narrow a focus.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • I do hope you read the IPCC report on cyclone that hit the Phillipines.
      And I am glad we have a quite hurricane season.

    • Ooops, why is a quite hurricane season, make you so angery. Good news that we are having a quite hurricane season.

    • Problem is that the AL Gore supporters are really too narrow a focus.
      But, good news about the quiet hurricane season.

    • Typhoon Haiyan had wind speeds of up to 170 mph and was rated as a category-five storm early Thursday. An average of 20 typhoons hit the Philippines every year. In 2011, typhoon Washi killed 1,200 people, displaced 300,000 and destroyed more than 10,000 homes. Bopha, the strongest storm to hit last year, flattened three coastal towns on the southern island of Mindanao, killing 1,100 people and destroying crops, property and infrastructure worth $1 billion.
      Earthquakes, volcanoes, typhoons.. they need our prayers.

        Typhoon Bopha slammed ashore on the Philippine island of Mindanao at 4:45 am local time on Tuesday morning as a Category 5 storm with 160 mph winds. Bopha is the third Category 5 typhoon to affect the Western Pacific this year, and the strongest typhoon ever recorded to hit Mindanao, which rarely sees strong typhoons due to its position close to the Equator. The death toll from the powerful storm already stands at 40, and is expected to rise. While passage over land has weakened Bopha to a Category 2 storm, the tropical cyclone is spreading torrential rains over a large portion of the southern Philippine Islands, and this will cause serious flooding problems today. The island of Mindanao is highly vulnerable to flood disasters from tropical cyclones; last year's Tropical Storm Washi, which hit Mindanao on December 16, 2011 with 60 mph winds and torrential rains, killed over 1500 people. Before hitting the Philippines, Typhoon Bopha brought a storm surge estimated at ten feet to the island nation of Palau, where near-total destruction is being reported in some coastal areas.
        Bopha: the 2nd most southerly Category 5 typhoon on record
        Bopha, a Cambodian word for flower or a girl, became a tropical depression unusually close to the Equator, at 3.6°N latitude. Tropical cyclones rarely form so close to the Equator, because they cannot leverage the Earth's rotation to get themselves spinning. Bopha became the second most southerly Category 5 typhoon on Monday at 7.4°N latitude. The record is held by Typhoon Louise of 1964, which was a Category 5 storm at 7.3°N.

        Serious storms, but.. still no proof supporting man made CO2 is the root cause. Give up , piloal.gorexxx

      • So much for the "quiet season".

        Sentiment: Strong Sell
