Understanding Climate Change

The US was hit by dozens of major hurricanes from 1899 to 1996. Those were just weather, but two major hurricanes in the last 12 years is climate.

Note that New England was hit by two major hurricanes in both 1944 and 1954, and none since then.

    Worth mentioning that just a few feet to the south the strong Cat 3 Long Island Express made landfall on Long Island New York, and a bit later a second landfall on Connecticut (officially a part of New England) still as a Cat 3. Some 600-800 people perished in one of worst ever.

    Anyone notice in the zealous charge to name as many storms as possible that they skip “L” naming Maria before Lee? Speaking of which was Lee ever really a storm. I found it interesting that a depression was named in the first place. Then in it headed out into the Atlantic where miraculously it became a full blown miniature hurricane in the course of a few hours. WTF? Was it photoshopped?
