Thunderf00t is a shithead. It doesn't matter if what he tries to claim is correct anymore. He faked videos to bash other youtubers. He will be downvoted for the rest of his life.

Here he's even trying to make it appear that PewdiePie was making a global warming argument, which is not the case at all. He was making a point about celebrities using images of forest-fires to justify their virtue signaling. And some of the images weren't even accurate. Wrong places. And that the celebrities were asking for prayers in social media on behalf of "mother earth".

What a fucking asshole.

We should ignore and forgive all the outright lies the right-wing guys say because this guy was once a dick.  Sure.  Sure.

Not a fan of Mr. left foot. But this was well done.

Also anything that makes loony conservaturds look like arrogant idiots (by self-exposure of course) is a rational and comedic thumbs up.

TIL - Hurricanes did not exist until the industrial revolution.

Yeah, weird.

How would that ever have an anthropogenic connection?

exactly. 1 cat 4 hurricane every 4 years on average before the revolution is exactly the same as 1.5 cat 4 hurricanes per year on average currently. it's hurricanes and hurricans, no different, no change.

TIL - Storm tracking pre-revolution was JUST AS GOOD AS storm tracking in modern age of satellites.

What has always puzzled me is what climate change deniers think scientists have to gain by claiming that climate change exists. Nothing, as far as I can see, apart from the hope that we might begin to change our ways and save our species from possible extinction. Whereas the Republican government has plenty to gain for themselves and the oil companies they support (and who support them) by claiming that it's all nonsense. It makes perfect sense that a Republican politician would lie about climate change, but it makes no sense to me why some guy off the street would take their word for it over the overwhelming majority of scientists.

We'll be the last ones to go extinct on this planet. Warmer climate sounds nice to me. The idea the Eartch can't handle a bit of extra CO2 than was scheduled is infantile..

The relation between global warming and hurricane activity is not fully explored. This is a recent study on the issue.

The executive summary at the beginning will suffice for most.

As the study CLEARLY states it is NOT a denial of the human caused global warming theory.

I haven't seen the video yet but thought this would be good additional info.

Was just looking at the same site. 

Existing records of past Atlantic tropical storm numbers (1878 to present) in fact do show a pronounced upward trend, correlated with rising SSTs (see Figs. 1 and 9 of Vecchi and Knutson 2008). However, the density of reporting ship traffic over the Atlantic wasrelatively sparse during the early decades of this record, such that if storms from the modern era (post 1965) had hypothetically occurred during those earlier decades, a substantial number would likely not have been directly observed by the ship-based “observing network of opportunity.” We find that, after adjusting for such an estimated number of missing storms, there is a small nominally positive upward trend in tropical storm occurrence from 1878-2006. But statistical tests reveal that this trend is so small, relative to the variability in the series, that it is not significantly distinguishable from zero (Figure 2). Thus the historical tropical storm count record does not provide compelling evidence for a greenhouse warming induced long-term increase.

there are 2 kinds of climate change deniers, those who are still invested in seafront property, and those who have disinvested in it.

The ones living in the Florida Keys arnt the same ones observing safely clinging to their political religions. When science becomes unpoliticized you have 1 side. The 1 actually trying to help out and understand. This war on information in service to the privledged few. Is not really helping anyone truly, in the eye of catastrophy
