Meteorologist Mike Smith made an excellent backyard experiment a couple of years ago to…

"Very wet rain events" from tropical cyclones linked to earthquakes

From the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science , an interesting groundbreaking paper, ahem…but, wait for it, we’ll soon hear “Climate disruption causes more hurricanes and those cause more earthquakes” from the Rommists and McKibbenites. Research study shows link between earthquakes and tropical cyclones New study may help scientists identify regions…

AGW proponents seem hell bent on trying to repeat this “linked to” nonsense at any cost, why just the other day I found out I was apparently…

Pakistan floods last summer could have been predicted

Peter Webster at Georgia Tech is a colleague of Dr. Judith Curry. Data generated by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) in late July 2010 indicated imminent, extreme precipitation over Pakistan. Click here to see ECMWF Extreme Forecast Index maps and the centre’s newsletter article on rainfall predictions prior to the floods. AGU…
