A ‘head scratcher’ – No Atlantic Hurricane by August in First Time in 11 Years
WUWT ^ | 8/30/2013 | Anthony Watts

Posted on 08/31/2013 10:06:14 AM PDT by Signalman

Where are all the hurricanes Al Gore, Bill McKibben, Joe Romm, and Brad Johnson say are supposed to happen due to global warming?

August is about to end without an Atlantic hurricane for the first time since 2002, calling into question predictions of a more active storm season than normal.

Six tropical systems have formed in the Atlantic since the season began June 1 and none of them has grown to hurricane strength with winds of at least 74 miles (120 kilometers) per hour. Accumulated cyclone energy in the Atlantic, a measure of tropical power, is about 30 percent of where it normally would be, said Phil Klotzbach, lead author of Colorado State University’s seasonal hurricane forecasts.

“At this point, I doubt that a super-active hurricane season will happen,” Klotzbach said in an e-mail yesterday.

The most active part of the Atlantic season runs from Aug. 20 to about the first week of October. The statistical peak occurs on Sept. 10, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

I’m on Florida’s east coast. We’ve had afternoon thunderstorms all summer. In the years we have afternoon storms we don’t get hurricanes. In ‘04 and ‘05 we didn’t have the afternoon storms.

Although Hurricane seasons starts in June, the real hurricane season has yet to begin.

Sept seems to be the real peak here.

But it is oddly quite this year.

Give it a rest, deniers. Can’t you see that Climate Change™ is responsible for upsetting the normal balance of our planet’s weather systems?

The only solution is to pass a global carbon tax on all that deadly CO2 you morons are expelling into our delicate atmosphere!

After moving to Fla in Summer ‘60, we had our first taste of hurricanes and it was Hurricane Donna. No fun, as we lived on the beach and had to evacuate to higher ground, if you can call it that in Fla. It was one vicious storm. I was a precocious 12 at the time, and pretty cocky.....until it hit.

I understand the Al Gore is under suicide watch, while his braintrust (snicker, snort) is attempting to come up with a story, any story to explain how a season with little or no hurricanes is damaging to Mother Earth and how it was caused Climate Change or Global Warming, which ever is appropriate at the time.

September and October are the worse months for hurricanes.
Central and South Florida are being pounded by daily rains and the ground is saturated .
If we get one this year , even a small one , it is going to be BAD because of major flooding

No weather is extreme weather so this, like everything else, proves AGW.

The way we could prove it is just kill every human being on the planet and measure the drop in global temperatures.

Then we'd know for sure.

But, but we were told, back in 2005, by none other than NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC that super storms were in our future because of GLO-BULL warming!

How many category 5 super storms have hit the US since Katrina and Rita! Sandy was barely above a tropical storm when it hit NYC at a high tide, and two nor'westerners barreling down on her.

There is a certain level of excitement when a major hurricane is churning off the East Coast. There's a run on plywood at the Home Depot. I can fill my garage with cases of beer without getting a hard time from the wife. She's putting fresh batteries in flashlights, pulling out the candles and filling plastic containers with water.

I like to go to the beach during these times. The surf is always a little bit choppier and rougher. A stiff breeze keeps the mosquitoes at bay. Thick, fluffy cumulus clouds scud across the sky. I'm filling up all my red gas containers and getting the propane tanks filled. Doing an oil change on the generator and testing it out - just in case.

When a hurricane is nearby, the air gets kind of heavier, more tropical. I get in the mood to mix pitchers of margaritas and drink them out on my picnic table in the backyard while listening to the radio. I start getting phone calls and emails from far-away friends and relatives concerned about me being in the "path of a monster" as according to the Weather Channel - even if landfall is projected to be some 600 miles down the coast from where I am. Apparently I am in jeopardy just by living on the Eastern Seaboard.

When a hurricane does pass over my house, even if it's blown-out remnants, it's always an event. Businesses shut down. Highways close. I'm walking my dog around the neighborhood with a gusty wind and periodic downpours and neighbors think I'm crazy for being out in it. Branches blow off trees and I like the way the bigger trees sway back and forth and my dog and I pass through the swirling winds. If we get drenched - no big deal. The rains are so warm and I'm usually in shorts and sandals anyway. My dog doesn't care and appears to even like getting wet.

For some reason, hurricanes and beer go together. After a hurricane passes by, everybody has recycle bins full of empty beer cans on trash day. Some wine bottles but not as much as what you see after Thanksgiving and Christmas.

How many category 5 super storms have hit the US since Katrina and Rita!
--------------------------------------------------------

Katrina and Rita were only Cat 5 'super storms' out in the Gulf. Both were low end Cat 3's when they made landfall.

New Orlean's massive damage was due to flooding when the levees failed. The levees failed due to mismanagement by the Corp of Engineers.

Responsibility for the failures and flooding was laid squarely on the Army Corps in January 2008 by Judge Stanwood Duval, U.S. District Court, but the federal agency could not be held financially liable due to sovereign immunity in the Flood Control Act of 1928.

I’m on Florida’s east coast. We’ve had afternoon thunderstorms all summer

Years ago, while I was still in the Air Force, I had to make a visit to a defense contractor in Florida. As we walked to the cafeteria for lunch, I noticed all the thunderheads in the sky. No one was paying them any attention. I thought, if I were home in Ohio and saw storms like those, I'd be running for cover, instead of casually walking across the parking lot.

The way I heard it, the money intended to maintain the levees was spirited off to other uses by the RAT administrations of NOLA.

Algore will, of course claim that the dearth of activity is an ominous sign of Global Warming Climate Change whichmakes it all the more necessary for the World Government to take over everything and reduce the world population right now to 500 million or so.

You could be on to something. The trend for the last 10+ years has been cooling. We need more SUV's and more carbon to reverse the cooling.

None of you are obviously getting the message. A lack of hurricanes is a direct result of “Climate Change” and if you dare disagree or even question the notion in the least bit, you’re an anti-science Denier and don’t even deserve to have an opinion.

I am on Florida’s northern Gulf coast. We have not had a discernible summer this year except for a total of 3 or 4 days- marginally. We have had a rainy season like this area has not had since that was the norm back in the 50s and 60s.
Some nights I have wished I had a long sleeve shirt at work (I am a night security guard at a shipyard).
