Tracking Progress on Disasters, 2018 Update

Damn this is not going to generate clicks. The media demand their #DisasterPorn narrative

Roger Pielke Jr.

The figure above shows disaster losses as tracked by Munich re from 1900 to 2018, based on an update published earlier this week (here). The update allows me to add another year to the data reported in this paper:

Pielke, R. (2018). Tracking progress on the economic costs of disasters under the indicators of the sustainable development goals.Environmental Hazards, 1-6.

The graphs below show losses as a percentage of global GDP from 1990 to 2018, for all catastrophes (top) and those that are weather/climate related (bottom)

  • Overall losses were at about the 1990-2017 average ($160b vs $163b)
  • Weather/Climate losses were above the 1990-2017 average ($147B vs $129B)
  • Overall losses are well below the 1990-2017 average (0.19% vs 0.28%)
  • Weather/Climate losses are slightly below 1990-2017 average (0.18% vs 0.22)

Bottom line:

  • 2018 saw substantial disasters with large costs.
  • However, in terms of economic damage it was…

Erratic motion of north magnetic pole forces experts to update model that aids global navigation.

Something strange is going on at the top of the world, a Nature article says.

Earth’s north magnetic pole has been skittering away from Canada and towards Siberia, driven by liquid iron sloshing within the planet’s core.

The magnetic pole is moving so quickly that it has forced the world’s geomagnetism experts into a rare move.

Caroline “Do As I Say, Not Do” Lucas

It’s clear they’re is no crisis and that this is manufactured as a power/cash grab. We, the people, demand an audit of where the trillions have gone to faceless NGO’s and green troughers. Where’s the money coming from Caroline?


By Paul Homewood

Labour’s plans to increase green taxes on air flights will doubtlessly go down well with Caroline Lucas, our only Green MP.

It was Lucas who a few years ago notoriously called air travel “as bad as knifing aperson in the street”, as the Mail reported:

A leading politician has sparked outrage by comparing people who fly to Spain on holiday with knife-wielding criminals.

Caroline Lucas has been a fierce opponent of the proposed third runway at Heathrow.

Caroline Lucas, the leader of the Green Party, suggested that travellers who regularly jet off to the Costas are threatening the lives of others – and do as much damage as thugs who stab people in the street.

Ms Lucas, who is also a Member of the European Parliament, made the controversial comment during a televised ITV debate about plans for a proposed third runway at Heathrow. She…

Look like the cold is on the move and the sudden stratospheric warming could impact for months to come.

It seems that rumours of the end of snowy European winters have been greatly exaggerated. Countries as far south as Greece have been badly affected.

Winter storms have killed several people across Europe, including in Germany, reports
