Global hurricane activity at historical record lows: new paper
Watts Up With That?

June 26,2011

Ryan Maue


During the past 6-years since Hurricane Katrina, global tropical cyclone frequency and energy have decreased dramatically, and are currently at near-historical record lows. According to a new peer-reviewed research paper accepted to be published, only 69 tropical storms were observed globally during 2010, the fewest in almost 40-years of reliable records.

Furthermore, when each storm’s intensity and duration were taken into account, the total global tropical cyclone accumulated energy (ACE) was found to have fallen by half to the lowest level since 1977.

In his new paper “Recent historically low global tropical cyclone activity”, Dr. Ryan Maue, a meteorologist from Florida State University,


It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952

RE: Global hurricane activity at historical record lows: new paper
Interesting. There was a study that came out showing that Atlantic hurricane intensity and frequency was directly tied to dust coming off Africa. The AGW people used this to suggest that rising CO2 and thus rising temps would increase the dryness and thus the dust making everything worse.

Now those of us on the denier side know that warmer climate can be tied to greener deserts which would mean less dust.

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”.J Robert Oppenheimer.
