    Apparently not only the most severe storm historically, but ever. So glad those predictions of increased storm severity with AGW and climate change were so wrong.

    Although a believer in global warming, this storm is not much bigger than one I had to plot in 1963 or ’64. That storm had sustained winds of 171 knots (196.8 mph, 316.8 kmh). This just before scientists said we were in a period of global cooling.

    Typhoons hit the Philippines how many times a year and have been doing that for how long?

    This is just trolling on Gorebal Warming.

    For you guys who are talking about the “coming ice age in the 1970s,” it’s possible to find out the actual story, which is, in brief, based on limited data over a few decades, there was some concern that we might be ending a short interglacial period, but the consensus of the time was “need to do more research, we don’t know enough yet.” For more details, here’s the scoop from RealClimate.org:

    Oh, and just to really nail this myth into its coffin, they checked papers of the time.

    “Between 1965 and 1979 we found (see table 1 for details):
    7 articles predicting cooling
    44 predicting warming
    20 that were neutral”

    So, yes, global warming was expected as early as the 1970s.

    The Anthropocene and the death of civilization
    Some people, in fact most people, recognize the threat of climate change and the need to address the already unavoidable consequences of it.

    Is that where they outsourced the tech support to? Usually they go to India for that…

    Just a note: Atlantic Ocean = “Hurricane”, Pacific Ocean =“typhoon”. Interesting that some of the discussion from some sources, the “deniers” don’t know that “difference”. BTW, my son rode through a big one in Guam, while everyone was “under cover”, one of their dogs stayed out in the middle of an open field through the whole thing. HIs attitude was “Ho-hum”. (They WERE a little surprised he didn’t literally get “blown away”.)
