5,000-Year Record of Hurricanes Blows Out Global Warmers

May 28 (LPAC)--Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) geologists have studied records of 5,000 years of hurricanes that made landfall. The results don't sit well with the man-caused-global-warming brayers who want you not to question their contention that warmer ocean waters must mean more severe hurricanes.
Hiding the problem, the Washington Post simply buried the study's results under the headline, "Ocean Temperatures Not the Only Determining Factor in Hurricanes" and played up the brayers' line as though there is science to back it up.


What the Woods Hole study showed, according to a May 23 WHOI release, is that it is the El Nino/Southern Oscillation and the West African Monsoon that are the key determiners of hurricanes. The researchers found that the number of intense hurricanes increased when El Nino was relatively weak, and the West African monsoon was strong.


"Much media attention has been focused recently on the importance of warmer ocean waters as the dominant factor controlling the frequency and intensity of hurricanes. And indeed, warmer sea surface temperatures provide more fuel for the formation of tropical cyclones," the WHOI release noted. "But the work by [Jeff] Donnelly and [Jonathan] Woodruff suggests that El Nino and the West African monsoon appear to be critical factors for determining long-term cycles of hurricane intensity in the Atlantic."


The two geologists began their study in 2003 by sediment-core samples from Laguna Playa Grande on Viegues (Puerto Rico), an island extremely vulnerable to hurricanes. The geological record showed that there were periods of more frequent intense hurricanes from 5,000 to 3,600 years ago, from 2,500 to 1,000 years ago, and from 1700 AD to the present. Previous records from New York and the Gulf Coast matched those findings. The study's latest results are in the May 24 issue of Nature.

People still pay attention to global warming tripe??

Wake the fuck up, guys. If they gave a rats ass about the issue they claim to fight, they'd put all their money, research and attention on the root cause of the issue: dependance on a limited fossil fuel source for energy. This issue for the people behind, "YOU'RE DESTROYING THE PLANET!!" is about money and political power. This is why these assholes pay lip service to the ebils of the petroleum industry without actually doing a damned thing about their stranglehold (because if you dig deep enough you'll find out just how much money the petroleum industry pumps into global warming research annually...and really scratch your head).

What a stupid post. Let's just worry about Atlantic Hurricanes. Let's not worry about Pacific Typnoons, screw those people. What an idiotic way of thinking. Typical Fascist ideal, just worry about yourself, screw everybody else.

Sorry Bear, but whats the issue with global warming here:

1. The 4th IPCC report refrains from making comments about increased hurricane activity in North America;

2. This study does not claim to refute the existence MMGW or the effects of CO2 emmission on global temperatures;

3. The article clearly states the institute's finding that: "warmer sea surface temperatures provide more fuel for the formation of tropical cyclones", but El Nino and the African Monsoon are also critical factors (either of which may themselves be affected by MMGW, particularly the latter - this may go either way - not mentioned in the article though... Nor did the article contemplate a super-storm scenario where all of these factors are aligned).

4. You have failed to provide a source link, and I doubt the credibilty of the source considering the crappy standard of journalism and jingoistic references to the Washington Post "hiding" the facts by publishing them.

mk...i don't read the thing anyway...

2. This study does not claim to refute the existence MMGW or the effects of CO2 emmission on global temperatures;
and yet...the single biggest cause is the variation in water surface temps....

3. The article clearly states the institute's finding that: "warmer sea surface temperatures provide more fuel for the formation of tropical cyclones", but El Nino and the African Monsoon are also critical factors (either of which may themselves be affected by MMGW, particularly the latter - this may go either way - not mentioned in the article though... Nor did the article contemplate a super-storm scenario where all of these factors are aligned).
So what you are saying is...that the entire climate is dependent upon human activity...and that nothing that happens in it is the result of something other than human activity. So the fact that in Al-Gore's so called "levels of carbon dioxide - planetary heat" model, that the carbon dioxide react to changes in heat, really doesn't matter. Or that many things besides emissions result in higher C02 levels - like volcanoes, expanding cities, destruction of plants, autumn where all the trees lose their leaves. Or that there is no evidence supporting YOUR position rather than jingoism or 'c02 is associated with higher heat...we make c02...therefore we make heat'. I suppose none of those facts means anything to you, considering how you believe that humans are the cause of everything that is bad in this world.

4. You have failed to provide a source link, and I doubt the credibilty of the source considering the crappy standard of journalism and jingoistic references to the Washington Post "hiding" the facts by publishing them.
I found the article here:
Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee

quick google search found here:
News Release : WHOI Geologists Compile Longest Ever Record of Atlantic Hurricane Strikes : Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Work published (but not appearing) here:
Intense hurricane activity over the past 5,000 years controlled by El Nino and the West African monsoon : Abstract : Nature

lol you are retarded.
I suppose west africa and puerto rico are in the pacific?
Let me educate you. Hurricanes of the Atlantic are called Typhoons in the Pacific. You only addressed Hurricanes. Therefore ignoring the term "Global Warming".
Very typical propaganda tool.

bu the point is that people argue that hurricanes will increase in strength with higher global temperatures.

What you are saying is irrelevant. Its like saying that by not addressing crime in east and west coasts, that I am not really addressing crime if I only focus on one.

So you only have to address the Atlantic Ocean to Debunk Global Warming? What a strange way of thinking.
