Hurricane Dorian Livestreams

This storm is an absolute beast, with sustained winds of 185mph and gusts of 220mph putting it right up there in the pantheon of recorded Atlantic hurricanes. We can only hope and pray for anyone caught up in this. https://youtube.com/watch?v=Nvdw7rSemgI https://twitter.com/RyanMaue/status/1168207982775164930?s=19 https://twitter.com/i/events/1167460137071607808 https://twitter.com/MJVentrice/status/1168257926202572802?s=19 https://twitter.com/NHC_Atlantic/status/1168204860577026049?s=19 https://twitter.com/splillo/status/1168250674183901187?s=19 https://twitter.com/WPLGLocal10/status/1168232955887718401?s=19 https://youtube.com/watch?v=KC2qZpf8ghk https://twitter.com/ChrisMartzWX/status/1168208942092247040?s=19 https://YouTube.com/watch?v=rk_GoTxJf-g https://twitter.com/metoffice/status/1168204706482724865?s=19 https://youtube.com/watch?v=ZSl9alYvG-o

Watch “Your Life is About to Change Are World Events Adding Up Yet (843)”

Chiefio put an interesting piece up last week titled Crop Failure Year Looms which I highly recommend - and the comments. Now David Dubyne who runs the Adapt2030 channel has put up a video synthesising much of the global news reports of droughts and floods as the jetstream changes into a deep meridional flow in … Continue reading Watch “Your Life is About to Change Are World Events Adding Up Yet (843)”

Climatologist: Why so many tornadoes this year? Not what some may think

There’s no clear link between global warming and tornadoes. But in terms of twisters that upend homes and lives, a review published in October in the journal Nature adds insight.
Notorious “Tornado Alley” — the band of states in the central United States, including Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, that each spring are ravaged by hundreds of tornadoes — is not disappearing. But it seems to be expanding to include more of the Midwest and the Southeast’s “Dixie Alley,” a term coined in 1971.

That means a higher frequency of tornadoes in Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, Kentucky and eastern Missouri.

Kansas City Star | ‘Here we go again’: Is latest spate of tornadoes a new normal in Missouri and Kansas?

[1974 was] the most violent tornado outbreak ever recorded (as of 2019), with 30 F4/F5 tornadoes confirmed. From April 3 to 4, 1974, there were 148 tornadoes confirmed in 13 U.S. states and the Canadian province of Ontario.[nb 1] In the United States, tornadoes struck Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and New York. The outbreak caused roughly $843 million USD (~equivalent to $4.58 billion in 2019) with more than $600 million (~equivalent to $3.3 billion in 2019) in damage occurring in the United States. The outbreak extensively damaged approximately 900 sq mi (2,331 km2) along a total combined path length of 2,600 mi (4,184 km).[1][2] At one point, as many as 15 separate tornadoes were on the ground simultaneously.

Clearly we must now protest and chant I want you all to panic! so we can give up our cash and liberties so we can control flying monkeys tornadoes.

Politicians keen to promote climate alarm run the risk of embarrassing themselves when pronouncing on random weather events.

H/T Climate Change Dispatch

With destructive tornadoes comes climate alarmism, so it’s useful to know why so-called global warming would produce fewer – not more – cyclonic events, says Dr Roy Spencer.

Progressive politicians like Al Gore, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D.-N.Y., don’t hesitate to blame any kind of severe weather – even if it is decreasing over time – on global warming.

With the devastating Dayton, Ohio, tornadoes fresh on our minds, it is useful to examine exactly why (modest) global warming has produced fewer – not more – of such events.

The simple answer is that tornado formation requires unusually cool air.
