    To prove that facts mean nothing to the loons, remember after Katrina how the global warming zombies said

    that from now on the hurricane seasons were going to more violent due to global warming? The real experts, hurricane-ologists, said no, hurricane seasons are cyclical and we were now due for milder hurricane seasons. Well guess what? The nutty global warming loons were wrong the experts, real experts, were right. Did this proof deter the loons? No, it did not. Instead, they doubled down and said last year all of the Artic ice was going to melt. Well guess what? Last year we had one of the earliest freezes in Artic history, a record winter in the northern US and the Artic added 50% more ice. Did this deter the loons? No, it did not. Proving facts mean nothing to a loon. They hate facts and reality. They love living in an alternate reality.

    Atlantic hurricane season begins Sunday: Will record streak without major hurricane landfall end?

    By Brian McNoldy

    May 30 at 10:55 am

    After a six-month break, hurricane season is here again. It is expected to be a relatively quiet season, but that does not mean we should let down our guard; just a single landfall at a vulnerable location can be a major disaster.

    Some very lucky years

    The U.S. has been extraordinarily fortunate lately: we have not been witness to the fury of a major hurricane (category 3 or higher) landfall since October 2005 when Wilma hit southwest Florida as a Category 3 storm. (Other countries have not had such good fortune these past few years. )

    Since the hyper-active 2005 season, the U.S. has had just six Category 1 and 2 hurricane landfalls: Humberto (TX), Ike (TX), Gustav (LA), Dolly (TX), Irene (NC), and Isaac (LA). Sandy was not technically a hurricane at its NJ landfall, and if it were, it would have been a Category 1 storm.

    • its a waste of time even trying to convince the libs of anything - they are sucking off Obama's breast milk of Communism and are lost forever...

    • Not one loon addressed the subject of this post. That speaks volumes. Everyone of them refused to answer the post. All they can do is change the subject, as if changing the subject is an answer and they think they are being clever.

    • First of all, hurricanes happen all over the world, not just in the Atlantic. They are called Typhoons in other parts of the world. Secondly, the idea is GLOBAL climate change, with the emphasis on GLOBAL. So your little localized observations are hardly anything to write home about, and in fact, many observers including Al Gore at the time, dismissed the very points your making as if all persons who are studying Global Climate Change said it with unanimity. Global Climate Change is about as scientifically certain as most other scientific subjects that are studied these days, but certainly there will be people who write something, rhetorically, and others who will use it rhetorically, and NEITHER will be addressing the scientific reality.

      Storm intensity, not the number of storms, has been increasing around the world. Most people can attest to that by watching the news. Tornados included, you nincompoop. Typhoons in Asia, as we all know, have also been particularly intense of late. But the impacts of global warming will not just be storms, but rising seas, the melting of the arctic AND the Antarctic, the massive increase of CO2 gasses, etc. The notion that this is a partisan issue, is further part of your delusion as a card carrying member of the anti-science idiot party. But it doesn't have to be like that. You could simply decide that science is useful and begin reading the SCIENCE articles, not the stupid button pushing articles.

      • China is the world's largest polluter and polluting more and more each day. Does anyone in their right mind think China is going to stop polluting? The loons never address that.

        We could go back to the mid 1800 with no power plants and go every where by horse power and China and India would not just keep polluting. By necessity would accelerate their polluting.

        We are cutting down our emissions daily and China and India are increasing theirs daily. They are bringing two coal powered power plants on line every week and will continue to bring them online for the next 20 years. Have the loons a solution for that? NO! They just want us to bankrupt ourselves on bogus global warming.

        Do I want cleaner air and water? Of course I do. Do I want to destroy our economy and industries to do it? No!

    • All I hear from the loons on this post is what we always hear when they know what you post is the truth are insult, changing the subject and the chirping of crickets.

    • good news Loony Pole, the ACA offers top notch psychiatric too can cure the delusions you suffer from.

    • Someone Tell the Record Polar Ice Cap It Should Be Melting
      May 15, 2014

      James M. Taylor, J.D.
      James M. Taylor is managing editor of Environment & Climate News, a national monthly...

      The Southern Hemisphere polar ice cap for the month of April 2014 surpassed its greatest April extent in recorded history. The new record extends a long-term expansion of the Antarctic ice sheet that defies alarmist claims that global warming is or should be melting the polar ice caps.

      Ironically, the record Antarctic ice extent occurred as global warming alarmists released a paper claiming recent global warming has now made it inevitable that Antarctica will lose its ice cap nearly 1,000 years from now. The establishment media has given the alarmist paper extensive and uncritical press coverage, even though objective scientists have pointed out glaring flaws in the paper. For example, objective scientists question why recent warming has put the Antarctic ice sheet past a tipping point when the ice sheet has survived many warmer periods in the past.

      Satellite instruments measuring the precise extent of the Southern Hemisphere polar ice cap report the polar ice cap has been steadily growing for decades. Moreover, the combined extent of the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere polar ice caps have been above the long-term average almost uniformly since 2012.

      • pole, you're a terrible moron who propagates total and complete BS from BS RWNJ organizations, whose moose dung names are diametrically opposed their true purposes and nature (think ; "Clean Air Act" or "No Child Left Behind" for pretty good examples of how you RWNJ like to name your dogs). Environment & Climate News is brought to you by The Heartland Institute ---- "The mission of the Heartland Institute is to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems".
        ^Try getting out of your "echo-chamber", sometime...
        You don't engage with fact, so don't expect your arguments to be elevated to a "teach the controversy" moment because there is no real dispute amongst 97% of true climate scientists, only minor differences in the level of alarm and when the "tipping point" actually is... but I guess you'll have to wait for Sean, Rush and, if he ever comes around, the very confused Mario Rubio ,, to become believers...

      • These facts are irrefutable! But I'll bet the moron and his clone flop will post something off topic and false to prove their fantasy of global warming is real. I'll bet they both have laminated pictures of PT Barnum in their wallets right next to the laminated picture of The Dear Leader.

        They will not refute the Washington Post article or the article on the polar ice caps. They can't. But truth and facts mean nothing to them. Their loony left ideology means everything to them and facts or truth will never get in the way of their hard left socialist ideology.
