Is it too much to ask that warmists learn a little history?

Is it just me, or do the great storms of the past come across as by no means less impressive than what we see today?

Is it too much to ask that warmists learn a little history?

J. Hope

And I quote: “…when they find themselves in the path of a ridiculously powerful storm that may not have been anywhere near as devastating without human impacts, their rhetoric won’t count for much.”

(He’s quoting from iceagenow post “Tropical storm shocks scientists – Shatters record for lowest temperature on Earth.”)

Note the wonderful use of that universal cover-your-ass get-out word ‘may’. So how exactly do you *prove* that such storms are in fact worsened by ‘human impacts’?

For example, how would a warmist explain that in 1780, when the global human population was less than one billion, a hurricane killed more than 22,000 people in the Eastern Caribbean region?

Or that in 1274, when the population was considerably lower, 13,000 people died in a single typhoon in Japan?

Or that in the year 1737 a cyclone struck India from the Bay of Bengal and claimed the lives of some 300,000 while sinking 20,000 ships?

Or that in 1897, more than 170,000 people perished when cyclone and storm surges swept through East Pakistan?

If I’m jumping around in history here, it’s only because there are so, so many examples to choose from. I could go on and on. All this, and plenty more, long before the preachings of AGW ever took a hold on the irrational minds of the gullible.

Now compare that to the 1,880 deaths from one of the worst disasters of modern times, Hurricane Katrina, which was as much a phenomenon of human mismanagement as it was of the ravages of nature.

Is it just me, or do the great storms of the past come across as by no means less impressive than what we see today?

And is it too much to ask that these warmists should learn a little history, instead of merely banging their tired old drum?
