Tornado Stats For 2015

March 10, 2016

By Paul Homewood  




NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center have now finalised their tornado data for 2015.

The year finished with 481 tornadoes of EF-1 strength or greater, the fourth year in a row that has been below average.


Perhaps more significantly, the number of EF-3 and stronger tornadoes was one of the lowest on record. You have to go back to 1987 to find fewer. There were no EF-5s at all, and only three EF-4s.




Rent seeking junk scientists continue to torture the data in order to convince people that tornadoes are somehow getting worse. Unfortunately for them, the evidence is utterly clear – the opposite is the case.

    Yet another catastrophic-man-made-global-warming metric going in the opposite direction.

    What other global warming falsehoods are you warned about which are simply designed to frighten you into belief?

    Are these statistics corrected for Doppler radar detecting more tornadoes since the radar’s existence?

      NOAA reckon that excluding F0s is enough to allow for Doppler etc, though my view is that you need to exclude F1s as well

      “Denierlist” is a truly awesome site. Not only is it a comprehensive list of the most prominent CAGW sceptics, some of whom I had not heard of, it quotes their ideas and links to their work! No rebuttals are included just referrals to DeSmogBlog. Of course it is a comfort blanket for the faithful but if any, even accidently, click one of those links an entire new world of perception lies open too them.
      As you say – “a most useful list”.

      Not “all the good people”; I am most disappointed not to be there.
