Climate Activists Hype Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda False Claims

We Prepared our readers for the onslaught of Global Warming / Climate Change buffs to blames the so-called ‘Super’ Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) on Man-made global warming.

We also stated that the data was going to be exaggerated (worst storm in History, Surge and wind data etc.) and it was.

Climate Depot has put Haiyan (Yolanda) into perspective with some actual facts:

Yolanda philippinesScientists reject Typhoon Haiyan link to man-made global warming: Storm expert Brian McNoldy of U. of Miami: ‘We don’t get to pick and choose which storms are enhanced by a warmer climate and which ones aren’t’ — Brian McNoldy, a senior research associate at the University of Miami: ‘While Haiyan was absolutely amazing, it’s not alone. It’s in an elite company of a handful of other tropical cyclones scattered across the decades and across the world.’ — Haiyan ‘was just as subject to this year’s climate as the numerous others that weren’t so impressive. Extremely intense tropical cyclones are rare, but have always been a part of nature — we don’t need to find an excuse for them.’

Gabe Vecchi, a research oceanographer with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), said that if global warming altered Haiyan, it did not do so to a significant extent. ‘I expect that the contribution of global warming to Haiyan’s extreme intensity is likely to have been small, relative to other factors like weather fluctuations and climate variability.’

Prof. Roger Pielke Jr. rips media for Haiyan hype: ‘Super powerful storm doesn’t need the extra hype. Reality is bad enough…Philippine Met Service predicted max 18 ft surge from Typhoon Haiyan. So Anderson Cooper’s [show] of CNN ‘off by 22-32 ft’ — Pielke Jr. : ’Indeed, pretty scary and devastating. So why the need to hype with false claims of 40-50 ft? (on CNN’s Anderson Cooper)

Philippine Met Service: ‘Some of the reports of wind speeds were exaggerated’

Flashback study shows most frequent typhoons happend in Little Ice Age: ’2004 paleoclimate reconstruction of hurricane landfalls in South-eastern China: ‘Remarkably, the two periods of most frequent typhoon strikes in Guangdong (AD 1660–1680, 1850–1880) coincide with two of the coldest & driest periods in northern & central China during the Little Ice Age’

Meteorologist Joe Bastardi: ‘If you really studied typhoons,then Haiyan is perhaps as big as they come, but you dont shoot your mouth off about it being strongest ever’

Media incorrect to claim (driven by warmist Jeff Masters) of Being The Most Powerful Hurricane Ever — Haiyan Was Only A Category 4 — ‘Weather officials said Haiyan had sustained winds of 235 kph (147 mph) with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph) when it made landfall. By those measurements, Haiyan would be comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S., nearly in the top category, a 5.’

Real Science: ‘Jeff Masters exaggerated the wind speeds by 50 MPH and got thousands of news publications to print his lies, which are now the sacred legend of the climate religion.’

The Philippines Have Always Had Super Typhoons — See list from 1882-1938

Analysis: ‘Every time there is a big storm, someone with an authoritative sounding title makes a bogus claim. The press corpse picks up on it, and it becomes sacred legend. No amount of scientific rebuke can undo the legend’

UK Paper Blames Typhoon Haiyan on Global Warming: ‘As climate change continues, we should expect more devastating storms’ — Meteorologist slams claim

Meteorologist Dr. Ryan Maue slams claims as the ‘first of many garbage articles to come’

Maue: ‘Over past 1,000 years, Philippines have been hit by 10-20 thousand tropical cyclones. Don’t be so arrogant to believe man caused Haiyan.’

  1. I found it Interesting that the U N according to the News claimed it was not due to climate change, Usually they push the climate change agenda. The IPCC data on Global Warming was based on half baked agenda driven science. The difficult issues with any science debate are: Who pays and sets up and presents the research and results?
    Is all the available data used and all the facts factored in?
    Are the unknown variables as near as they can be to draw up to represent an as accurate as possible prediction or assessment?

    Lets examine the possible missing parts in climate change events like:
    Our solar System Position within the Galaxy and external magnetic forces Influences. Solar and lunar activity. Polar shift, Earth’s magnetic field weakening since 1970. Natural weather change cycles that have occurred in Earth’s past some that have changed lush rainforests into deserts. Nuclear Tests that were carried out in the Van Allen belt since 1959 like the 1962 Project Starfish prime. Then we have the Micro wave and other radiation from communication devices, built up areas and deforestation since the Industrial age started, and the far fetched but possible H A A R P device use in combination with CHEMTRAILS.
    To use human car or transport and industrial emissions as the sole cause for agenda driven profit based climate change model without the other factors could be a deliberate attempt to mislead the public due to globalisation agenda reasons. These factors could be and are only a small percentage of the entire problem. I am always concerned when scientists are muffled and prevented from presenting alternate arguments by Governments due to powerful lobby groups. As such the entire global warming and climate change argument looses credibility. We can not argue that it is not happening. As it is plain that it is. However, why and what is causing the changes could be debated and need to have a free and open platform without restrictions imposed by any side.
    The human pollution factor is not responsible for Global warming on Mars and the other planets in our solar system.
    Poor guess work science fools some people but it does not fool all the people. Agenda driven media pushed political science is usually the conspiracy theorists challenge for answers that make more sense based on facts. The problem is that most of the so called conspiracy theory information actually have some basis in fact and years later are revealed to have been truth based on facts.

    What I found interesting was that some 2 months ago I receive an email with a tittle The Vatican opposing the Illumination.

    I read the article attached and brush it off, but it bothered me for some reason.
    A few weeks later the huge storm hits the U K and travels past Germany at 215 K per hour winds. This seems strange as Europe hardly ever if never had this happen, O K monitor the situation. Then the Typhoon huts the Philipines, the strongest yet recorded. (Coincidence, the Phillipines is 90% Catholic). A few web sites blamed CHINA as they hate the Phillipines and Vietnam, H A A R P was declared as the weapon used? The U S A was first on site from the Japanese based fleet a day or two later to offer assistance? How long does it take to get permission and get a fleet mobilised how long is the trip? I know the US NAVY monitors weather and is on stand by at all times.
    Then Italy (Sardinia?) gets flash floods that kill 18, and oddly this is followed by a storm and flood in Saudi Arabia killing 10.
    Blame God, Man, climate change. Or even Aliens this was strange and seemed selective.
    But all this is speculation and coincidence and has no basis in fact.
