    Tornadoes whipped up by wind, not climate

    http://www.france24.com/en/20110428-...mate-officials

    "If you look at the past 60 years of data, the number of tornadoes is increasing significantly, but it's agreed upon by the tornado community that it's not a real increase," said Grady Dixon, assistant professor of meteorology and climatology at Mississippi State University.

    "It's having to do with better (weather tracking) technology, more population, the fact that the population is better educated and more aware. So we're seeing them more often," Dixon said.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henny_Penny_(fable)


    A very early example containing the basic motif and many of the elements of the tale is some 25 centuries old and appears in the Buddhist scriptures as the Daddabha Jataka (J 322).[19] In it, the Buddha, on hearing about some particular religious practices, comments that there is no special merit in them, but rather that they are "like the noise the hare heard." He then tells the story of a hare disturbed by a falling fruit who believes that the earth is coming to an end. The hare starts a stampede among the other animals until a lion halts them, investigates the cause of the panic and restores calm. The fable teaches the necessity for deductive reasoning and subsequent investigation.

    Whether or not monitoring and instant media makes it seem more relevant in today's world is one thing.

    But the title is completely and utterly retarded. The wind, I hate to break it to you, is part of the Earth's climate. It's the same damned thing as saying:
    Tsunami Caused By Currents, not the Ocean

    from personal view, the wind dont cause tornadoes tornadoes CAUSE WIND!? but as to the insight and the fable about QUANTITY or increased CALAMITY, does that apply also to EVERYTHING the "PROMOTERS of CALAMITY" SUGGEST!? :cwm2: : :spin2: :

    senior, with all due respect tornadoes ARE caused BY wind, umpteen thuosand feet in the atmosphere. one of the first principles of "thermal dymanics" .... two unequal air masses(hi & lo or hot & cold) WILL trade places if at all possible. ie: one of these air masses are not in a sealed box. When these air masses meet one goes up and the other goes down causing movement of air or more commonly known as wind. now if these air masses are large enough and fairly equal in size and you mix in Gulf moisture we now have the main ingrediants for a mezo-cyclone which when conditions are perfect will produce a funnel cloud and sometimes just sometimes these funnel clouds hit the ground and are then catagorized as Tornadoes. point being that these conditions start with air movement/ wind.

    .. Tornadoes whipped up by wind, not climate. more like "Tornadoes whipped up by HAARP, not climate... Hey man, all the missing rain due west Texas is now in that big river flooding Louisiana and Mississippi ......get use to it mumbles :1crysad: Weather control is part of life. I dont care where you live, ur wx gets jacked with daily :1crysad:

    so hot and cold AIR causes tornadoes!? earth warm/outer space cold!? and you forgot to include the global warming angle!? yes or no!? :freak3: :spin2: :

    Roker also offered a theory on why tornadoes are seemingly touching down in more urban areas as of late. His answer: Climate change.

    “And you know look – yesterday, or the day before yesterday, we had the tornado in Minneapolis,” Roker said. “We have had these tornadoes and earlier this week we had a tornado in Philadelphia. And so, you know our weather, or climate change is such now that we are seeing this kind of weather not just in rural parts of our country, but in urban centers as well.”

    Pat Robertson said that "a pact to the devil" caused the devastating earthquake in Haiti, and now Danny Glover proposes a marginally less insensitive cause: climate change.

    "What happened in Haiti could happen to anywhere in the Caribbean because all these island nations are in peril because of global warming," Glover said. "When we see what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens, you know what I'm sayin'?"

    Hmm...

    I could have sworn that all along we've been saying 'LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS'.

    When you pulled out polls showing that the majority of weathermen don't believe in global warming, we said 'Who gives a ? LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.'

    When you pulled out things Al Gore said, we said 'Who gives a ? LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.'

    When you pulled out things politicians said, we said 'Who gives a ? LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.'

    When you pulled out things industry PR people said, we said 'Who gives a ? LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.'

    Now, when you pull out things actors and weathermen are saying, I'm going to still say 'Who gives a ? LISTEN TO THE SCIENTISTS.'



    Of course, being the master of shifting the goal-posts, I doubt you would understand consistency.

    The study documents how the weather is already becoming more extreme in Australia — worse droughts, worse deluges, and worse heatwaves — and warns of “Abrupt, non-linear and irreversible changes in the climate system.”

    and the effect on the world if australia burns more or less coal? none. australia is not relevant. china, india, russia.

    china is burning coal around the clock to build windmills for moonbats like you.

    Caption: China has huge reserves of coal, much of which is very low grade and highly polluting. Slum dwellings in Suihua, Heilongjiang Province emit coal smoke into an already highly polluted atmosphere.

    you want to give science and math lessons to somebody? start with your own leaders.

    What exactly is your point?

    That scientists agree that global warming will have significant impacts? That Australia will suffer because of global warming? That China is producing windmills? That Australia has a small population?

    you, as a tax payer, are paying for constant discussions, by your leaders, about carbon taxes, cap and trade, global warming, blah, blah. you don't have anything you would rather spend your money on? couple of sheep, perhaps?

    carbon taxes in australia will have no effect on anything, anywhere. these experts and politicians need to find real work to do.

    it does matter what china does, but in case you haven't heard, there is only one party there, and not much dissent is allowed. if the chinese party leader wants to burn coal, everybody will breath the smoke and like it.

    now, you think we need cap and trade in samoa?

    Of course we are. That is what they are there for. The overwhelming majority of Australians want a carbon emissions trading scheme and the political discussion in Australia reflects that. What would you rather they talk about? Our PM's birth certificate? Who's been getting blowjobs and where? Where Muslims are allowed to build mosques?

    carbon taxes in australia will have no effect on anything, anywhere. these experts and politicians need to find real work to do.
    They will have a real impact on Australia. We have the highest per-capita emissions in the developed world.

    it does matter what china does, but in case you haven't heard, there is only one party there, and not much dissent is allowed. if the chinese party leader wants to burn coal, everybody will breath the smoke and like it.
    China acknowledges that climate change is real. They are not stupid, and they are well aware of how delicate their food supply is. China is extremely vulnerable to climate change, and the Great Chinese Famine is still well within living memory. China disagrees with the west over who should bear the cost of mitigating climate change.

    it's worse here. unemployed men steal all the copper wire and pipes out of foreclosed houses, to sell to the chinese, who sell it back to us as windmills and other finished products. in the meantime, our moonbat messiah is off on another european vacation. why don't any of those scientists or al gore tell us the carbon footprint of the president, family, staff, security, cars, airplanes . . . ?

    Re: Tornadoes whipped up by wind, not climate

    Tornadoes are caused by temperature differences in the atmosphere, the greater the tempereature differences the more violent the storms, tornadoes and hurricanes.

    However Greenhouse gases resist temperature changes and make the atmosphere more evenly warm by trapping the heat more evenly. Less temperature change means fewer less violent storms. But for some reason that isn't catastrophic enough for Global Warming propogandist, so we are told the exact opposite.
