BlueSardine saysHas the water risen to your doorstep yet? I have champagne on ice...Ah, the nature of the conservative right is revealed once again. You are petty and despicable.

Great power is out FPL sucks. I have to resort to posting on petnet with my phone. How uncivilized

Looks like I triggered Shrek again with the truth. He's throwing a pissy ROTFLOL fit.
Yeah, I never would have thought about making a comment like that without your tutelage...Thanks for the lesson you petty despicable hypocrite...Dan8267 saysBlueSardine saysHas the water risen to your doorstep yet? I have champagne on ice...Ah, the nature of the conservative right is revealed once again. You are petty and despicable.Rin saysHey Blue Sardine, have you ever thought about dying of natural causes, since it's illegal for me to advocate suicide? Dan says Does auto-erotic asphyxiation count as natural causes? Because I've got a bet on that in the dead pool.
Some enterprising conservatives will no doubt find particular sites where the number of intense hurricanes has decreased, and use that to make a crappy case that global warming decreases hurricane intensity.
Ironman is looting Georgie's. Dan went down to cut him down with a sawed off shotgun.
https://www.gfdl.noaa.gov/global-warming-and-hurricanes/ It is premature to conclude that human activities–and particularly greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming–have already had a detectable impact on Atlantic hurricane or global tropical cyclone activity.
It is premature to conclude that human activities–and particularly greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming–have already had a detectable impact on Atlantic hurricane or global tropical cyclone activity. That said, human activities may have already caused changes that are not yet detectable due to the small magnitude of the changes or observational limitations, or are not yet confidently modeled (e.g., aerosol effects on regional climate).
Anthropogenic warming by the end of the 21st century will likely cause tropical cyclones globally to be more intense on average (by 2 to 11% according to model projections for an IPCC A1B scenario). This change would imply an even larger percentage increase in the destructive potential per storm, assuming no reduction in storm size.
There are better than even odds that anthropogenic warming over the next century will lead to an increase in the occurrence of very intense tropical cyclone in some basins–an increase that would be substantially larger in percentage terms than the 2-11% increase in the average storm intensity. This increase in intense storm occurrence is projected despite a likely decrease (or little change) in the global numbers of all tropical cyclones.
Anthropogenic warming by the end of the 21st century will likely cause tropical cyclones to have substantially higher rainfall rates than present-day ones, with a model-projected increase of about 10-15% for rainfall rates averaged within about 100 km of the storm center.
The strongest hurricanes in the present climate may be upstaged by even more intense hurricanes over the next century as the earth’s climate is warmed by increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Although we cannot say at present whether more or fewer hurricanes will occur in the future with global warming, the hurricanes that do occur near the end of the 21st century are expected to be stronger and have significantly more intense rainfall than under present day climate conditions. This expectation (Figure 11) is based on an anticipated enhancement of energy available to the storms due to higher tropical sea surface temperatures.
human activities may have will lead is projected will likely cause may be upstaged Is that what you call "science"? The quote I brought is in the present tense, and does not involve any could may will in the future when the auther is retired.Come back when you have smay be upstagedomething of substance. Oh, and and educate yourself on what science is:
human activities may have
will likely cause
may be upstaged
Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters). However, the annual rate of rise over the past 20 years has been 0.13 inches (3.2 millimeters) a year, roughly twice the average speed of the preceding 80 years.
Climate change science isn't vague
The proof is empirical and undeniable.
That's $1640 per U.S. tax payer, and it's just for Irma.
You're right, Dan. Before industrialization, there were no hurricanes.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/09/19/delingpole-climate-alarmists-finally-admit-we-were-wrong-about-global-warming/ And now, acclaimed climate scientists admit their models were very wrong.
. Before industrialization once in 500 years storms came once in 500 years. Today we had three in a single year.
Breitbart is a blatant propaganda mill.
Irma at landfall comes in 7th-8th behind 1935 Labor Day storm.
“As long as the climate isn’t changing, you can define these things reasonably well,” Trenberth said. “With climate change … what used to be a 500-year event is becoming a 70-year event or a 50-year event. It doesn’t mean that they’re common, but they’re no longer anything like as rare.”“That’s what the changing climate has done,” Trenberth added. “It means the extremes are greater — and if we don’t adapt to these, if we don’t take them into account, if we don’t build more resilience, we will suffer the consequences.”
There’s very little doubt among scientists that climate change has ratcheted up the potential intensity of hurricanes and other large storms, Mann says. “There’s now a pretty solid consensus that … the strongest storms will be stronger.”To understand how that happens, we can think of hurricanes as “heat engines.” At the start of a hurricane, warm air near the surface of the ocean rises, leaving a pocket of lower pressure air below. Other air from surrounding areas fills that pocket, and in turn warms and rises. As this cycle continues, “new” air swirls as it replaces the air that rises from the pocket. Meanwhile, the warm, moist air in the sky then forms a system of clouds, which spins and grows like an engine feeding off heat.The contrast in surface and aloft temperatures drives that engine, and, thanks to global warming, surface temperatures are rising significantly. “It’s making those heat engines more efficient,” says Mann. And with more efficient heat engines come more intense storms.“The old rules don’t apply anymore,” said Mann. “We’re no longer talking about chance alone. We’ve loaded the dice. We’ve loaded the weather dice by warming the planet and intensifying these storms and raising sea levels to the point where a storm that we’ve called a 1000-year event … is now a storm that we expect to happen once in maybe 20 or 30 years.”
Piggy, you are just plain wrong
Dude, I just showed you that you lied (or were "plain wrong") in the very title of the post.
The most powerful Atlantic Ocean storm in recorded history is sweeping across the Caribbean leaving destruction in its wake.
The most powerful Atlantic Ocean storm in recorded history
Only an idiot thinks that the measurable increase in severity of hurricanes is unfounded
Anyone else notice there was a major earthquake in Mexico today the same time Maria is doing it's thing and when Irma was churning, there was a major earthquake in Mexico. Coincidence or something more ?
$200 billion in damages from Irma. That's $1640 per U.S. tax payer, and it's just for Irma.
Once more piggy demonstrates that climate change deniers are liars.
Coincidence or something more ?
You showed no such thing.

A groundbreaking study shows that earthquakes, including the recent 2010 temblors in Haiti and Taiwan, may be triggered by tropical cyclones.
Very wet rain events are the trigger," said Wdowinski, associate research professor of marine geology and geophysics at the UM Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. "The heavy rain induces thousands of landslides and severe erosion, which removes ground material from the Earth's surface, releasing the stress load and encouraging movement along faults."
