THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper predicts a decrease in tropical cyclones in the future
A paper published today in the Journal of Climate finds climate models predict a decrease in tropical cyclones due to alleged warming from CO2, the opposite of claims by climate alarmists. According to the paper, "Tropical cyclones are shown to decrease in frequency globally by 9% in the [doubled CO2 simulation] and 26% in the [quadrupled CO2 simulation]." The paper corroborates many other peer-reviewed papers projecting a decrease of the frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones and hurricanes in the future. Multiple observational studies also find that tropical cyclones decrease with warming.Climate Change May Stop Invasive Ant Cold | LiveScience

On Monday, Republicans on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee — including Barrasso — demanded that EPA provide more data on global temperatures and charged that Obama was making inaccurate statements. But they also pivoted back to the economy.
“To promote his global warming agenda, the president has stated that ‘temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted even 10 years ago,’” wrote committee ranking member David Vitter (R-La.) and members including Barrasso and Inhofe. They added, “The American people deserve to know if the president has the facts straight, particularly as EPA presses ahead with zealous regulations that will drive up the price of electricity and make it harder for American workers to compete in the world economy.”
