THE MORNING RANT: The Science™ Regarding Climate Change and Hurricane Frequency Has Changed Again; More EV Towing Follies

It’s been a historically quiet hurricane season so far, but it may finally be picking up. For several decades, one of the apocalyptic predictions of the Sustainable Organic Church of the Carbon Apocalypse has been that there will be more hurricanes.

Here are a few blasts from the past:

Study Blames Climate Change for Hurricane Rise [Reuters – 7/29/2007]

The number of Atlantic hurricanes in an average season has doubled in the last century due in part to warmer seas and changing wind patterns caused by global warming, according to a study released on Sunday.

And here is your tax dollars at work, this is from The National Climate Change Assessment (“NCCA” of 2014

The intensity, frequency, and duration of North Atlantic hurricanes, as well as the frequency of the strongest hurricanes, have all increased since the early 1980s.

There has been a substantial increase in most measures of Atlantic hurricane activity since the early 1980s, the period during which high-quality satellite data are available. These include measures of intensity, frequency, and duration as well as the number of strongest (Category 4 and 5) storms.

The folks over at The Heartland Institute have put a lot of resources into debunking the climate hysteria. The chart below is from Heartland’s Climate At A Glance site. It tracks the total number of tropical storms every year since 1970, and also the subset of that total that were hurricanes. A few things stand out.

• The NCCA only referenced Atlantic hurricanes, not the global number of hurricanes. Perhaps their data was legitimate for that small section of the globe, but as shown in this chart, the lower line is the number of global hurricanes (or cyclones, or typhoons, or whatever you want to call them.) It has not trended upward in the past 50 years.

• The number of named tropical storms (top line) is increasing while the number of hurricanes is trending downward. I presume this is because of how aggressive the climatistas have been in slapping a name on every 39-mph gust of wind. It’s harder to fake the number of hurricanes though, because those require sustained winds of 74 mph.

Tropical Cyclone Frequence since 1970.JPG


With the frequency of hurricanes not behaving as The Science™ foretold, and now that we’re in a year in which there was an almost no tropical activity during the Atlantic’s peak hurricane season, The Science™ has changed!

This is from a New York Times article earlier this week about Hurricane Fiona.

A warming planet can expect stronger hurricanes over time and a higher incidence of the most powerful storms — though the overall number of storms may drop, because factors like stronger wind shear could keep some weaker storms from forming.

If the climatistas weren’t trying to destroy western civilization with their phony science, this evolving science to fit the current weather would be funny.

And ponder this, since global warning now results in fewer hurricanes according to the latest iteration of The Science™, taking the prescribed actions to reverse global warming would thus cause an increase in hurricanes.

Hey New Orleans, the Church of Greta Thunberg wants to save the world by inflicting more hurricanes on you.

Of course, this could still end up being a very busy hurricane season. If October has a steady parade of hurricanes, you can rest assured that The Science™ will have changed again, and that all those October hurricanes are also proof of global warming.

Stories about the futility of using EV trucks to do long distance towing just never get old.

I don’t really want to laugh at the misfortune of a family getting stranded on the western plains because they made the foolish decision to tow a camper behind an electric pickup, but it’s important for these stories to get out, so that the reality (futility) of EVs is understood, especially as it relates to trucks that are engaged in heavy hauling.

A couple with three children known as “The Electric Family” decided to document their 500-mile journey from Lincoln, Nebraska to Denver on You Tube. They had an electric Ford F-150 Lightning towing an Airstream camper.

Family Towed Camper with EV Truck - It Died and Had to Be Towed to New Charger by Fuel-Powered Tow Truck [Western Journal – 9/12/2022]

When the Krivolavek family pulled up to the Electrify America charging station in Ogallala, Katie said all the chargers read “unavailable.”

Steve called EA, who attempted to reboot the charger. Even after the reboot, it did not work. In addition, Katie said neither Kampgrounds of America sites in the area had car charging available. She and her children decided to walk to a nearby restaurant, and Steve planned to drive 30 miles down the road to find a charger.

The family had to leave their camper unhooked in Ogallala because the truck did not have enough charge to pull it 30 more miles.

“When Steve got to Julesberg, he had 0 percent,” Katie said. “Eventually, we had to call a tow truck and have the truck towed back to Ogallalla…”

“And it was also 100 degrees, so we could not stay in the trailer in the Walmart parking lot. We had to go across the street and get a room in a hotel.”

Katie said the truck had enough charge to get to Julesburg in the morning, and the family was ultimately able to continue on their way. But she had a warning for fellow EV owners.

“In the end we made it, but beware of EA’s chargers and have a backup plan,” she said.

Being able to have a gasoline-powered tow truck rescue you is an OK backup plan, I suppose, but it’s scary to think about what might happen when gas-powered tow trucks are illegal, and there is no way to rescue a stranded family in the middle of nowhere.

Songs of the Season

After several delightfully dry, cool weeks to start September, it got hot again around these parts. I guess that means we’re in an Indian Summer.

Speaking of which, here are Roy Orbison, Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, and the Gatlin Brothers singing “Indian Summer.” They all have great voices, and it’s a great song, you have to wonder how it happened that those guys came together to sing this song.

Have a great weekend.

Let's say you and your family can afford more than one $65,000+ electric car. I know, but let's pretend you can.

Are you going to charge both simultaneously? Forget about it cost-wise. What would that require voltage-wise and permit-wise? That would be what, electricity for two or three additional houses plus the house you're living in, right?

There are roughly 1 billion ICE cars in the world, an EVs battery pack has any where from 4000 to 7000 individual battery cells, that would mean at the high end, they would have to manufacture 7 trillion lithium ion cells just to replace existing cars, and trillions more into the future to support those cars.

I find that everyone of the EV lovers who have issues in their long distance travels say this, but don't ever specify what exactly what that plan should be. There are 2 that I can think of an both highlight the issues with EV only travel:
1. Increase the number of charging stops - that way you can be sure to spend more time "refueling" than traveling.
2. Have some sort of gas powered rescue vehicle - that puts a damper in the pipe dream of total EV usage.

OTOH, mockingly, he was told if he got EPA lead certified, he could repaint himself. He did. He repainted for a fraction of the cost and then pointed out to mgmt all of the EPA violations their guy was doing. Added these to the ongoing lawsuit he had against the building (on which I represented him). Wasn't worth a lot of money, but it did beget a nice insurance settlement. :->

What greenies may not realize is battery chemistry has been well-known for a hundred years. The physics of the charge/discharge cycle can be honed with better software, better construction, better cathode materials, and better electrolyte solutions, but you're still limited. Figuring out a solid state electrolyte helps, and figuring out a foldable form of lithium certainly helped, but we keep bumping up against the limits of chemistry.

Storing electricity for massive uses, like a city, is impractical (ie, crazy). Without storage, renewable energy sources are hugely expensive failures.

Instead, and stay with me here, how about producing enough electricity to power demand??? Huh?! 'Cause we can do that!

So you can't fully discharge your battery any longer? The "zero percent" the silly towing EV family mentions in their video was really 10%, and the manufacturers aren't allowing users the extra range in emergencies?

222 I have come to believe the people working towards making fossil fuels illegal all live in the primary urban areas and the furthest they have ventured from them approaches never. If they had actually went and took the time to understand the American West they would realize that modern agriculture runs on oil and given the limited of range of EVs, the minimal electrical infrastructure in these primarily rural areas, and the amount of time to recharge a EVs leads directly to reduced output from farms and ranches. That will definitely work out well. The proverbial canary in the coal mine here is passenger EVs that can't make a normal western USA trip without getting stranded or taking twice as long or more than fossil fuel transportation. If the climate authoritarians and their phony climate crisis are successful at scale, they will cause catastrophic agricultural, economic, and social disasters that undo the last 500 years of technological advancement.

This jaw-droppingly idiotic "agenda" is clearly the result of surveys and focus groups. It is a laughable non-agenda that they hope will not interfere with the natural process of a mid-term election, in horrendous national conditions, just coming to them without any effort.

The pathetic platitudes about the economy - minus any specifics of course - are as predictable as they are contemptible. The C19 vaccine thing, and the trademark scientifically illiterate "beat this virus", are bizarre. Seems impossible that those were "issues" that emerged from the surveys.

Posted by: rhomboid


Sorry, but the science is not that complicated. CO2 is measurably increasing. It's clearly increasing due to human activity. CO2 absorbs in the infrared and hence enhances the greenhouse effect.

But it really doesn't matter anywhere near as much as the high priests of climate science claim. Why? Because the effect on temperature is logarithmic in CO2 concentration.

Let's say the earth warms 2C from a doubling of CO2. You have to double it again to get another 2C. And so on.

2C is no big deal and we are very unlikely to go much beyond that (IPCC thinks its higher but the actual data doesn't support their models).

>>Sorry, but the science is not that complicated.

They have not proven that CO2 is the main driver of "warming," whatever the fuck that means because they have not defined a point or optimum to measure from.

CO2 has been demonstrated to be lagging while solar output has been demonstrated to be leading.

Solar Output goes up, temperatures go up, measured CO2 increases ever so slightly.

Atmospheric CO2 comprises a mere four one hundredths of a percent of atmospheric gases, mans contribution is minuscule, essentially a rounding error in a 5 quadrillion ton atmosphere.

290 quantum mechanic, even sorrier, but yes the science isn't that complicated, but you seem to have missed it.

CO2 concentration does not determine "earth temperature" by itself as the geologic record and paleoclimatology easily show. Even non-quantitative history confirms this.

Exactly what does combine to do so, and whether that changes or is constant, is not known or understood.

So there's just two tiny problems with all this. One, there's no basis for it (CO2 does not = temperature), and two, absolutely unclear that small temperature changes (which have occurred a zillion times) matter.

The sign of the impact of CO2 on temperature is not in dispute. That's basic physics. The models fail in magnitude, not sign. Primarily because because they fail to correctly account for all the other atmospheric processes.

Paleo (historical) data is useful. But it has been misused by the high priests of climate science as well.

as far as what Month is the worst, The "Big One", americas worst hurricane that hit Galveston on sept 8th 1900...it then ran due north through the US actually hitting Iowa...Chicago had many deaths and 85mph winds, steam ships capsized and sunk on Lake Erie, deaths in NY, 77mph winds in Toronto, ...Montreal...thence up through Newfoundland...it caused more than 232 deaths in 6 Canadian provinces.

FWIW, the median household is now spending about 71k per year up from 60 K or so in 2020. So effectively, the Biden junta has made everyone poorer by about 11k in two years.

Much like motorcyclists that leave their petcock in reserve mode, have the bike pushed a few miles to fill up and then have a very hard time getting it to start.
