Lie #13: Hurricanes “getting stronger”

Christopher Monckton of Brenchley, writing for the Science and Public Policy Institute:

Gore says scientists had been giving warnings that hurricanes will get stronger because of “global warming.” They will not. Over the past 60 years there has been no change in the strength of hurricanes, even though hydrocarbon use went up six-fold in the same period. Research by Dr. Kerry Emanuel, cited by Al Gore’s spokesman and “environment advisor,” Kalee Kreider, has been discredited by more recent findings that wind-shear effects tend to nullify the amplification of hurricane strength which he had suggested, and, of course, by the observed failure of hurricanes to gain strength during the past 60 years of “global warming.”

Hurricane strength and number has been covered here at GL repeatedly: here and also here.

    It’s painful how stupid you are. No, really. Painful, but somehow comical at the same time. I’m finding immense pleasure in your ignorance. I may have to actually book mark your site just so I can come back, point and laugh.
