New GWPF Paper Shows Hurricanes Are Not Getting Worse

January 14, 2019

By Paul Homewood




I am pleased to report that the GWPF have now published my latest paper on hurricane trends.

It demonstrates that, contrary to popular myth, hurricanes are not getting more frequent or more powerful.

The paper is based throughout on official data, scientific papers and IPCC reports.

Here is the Executive Summary:







Tropical cyclones are known by various names around the world – hurricanes in the Atlantic, typhoons in the W Pacific and so on.


Can I just make clear that this GWPF paper refers to ALL TROPICAL CYCLONES, not just Atlantic hurricanes.

The Introduction of the paper makes clear that all references will be made to “hurricanes”, purely for the sake of simplicity.

    A great succinct summary of reality. Thank you, Paul Homewood.

      Nobody is listening in California! 2019 started with a bang; 1,019 new laws signed, including a mandate that utilities make 60% (UP from the previous 50%) of their power from ‘renewable’ sources by 2030. I would like to say I feel sorry for the poor fools but in fact I hope to split my sides laughing in the not too distant future.

        Looks like people are going to have to learn by experience how stupid they are.

    The latest IPCC report, SR15, actually says hurricanes are decreasing:

    “Numerous studies towards and beyond AR5 have reported a decreasing trend in the global number of tropical cyclones and/or the globally accumulated cyclonic energy (Emanuel, 2005; Elsner et al., 2008; Knutson et al., 2010; Holland and Bruyère, 2014; Klotzbach and Landsea, 2015; Walsh et al., 2016).”

    Reblogged this on Tallbloke's Talkshop and commented:
    The only thing getting worse is the spurious climate alarm propaganda churned out every time a hurricane dares to approach the USA.

    Just hurricanes?
    What about the other 5 basins?
    Kind of a usa-centric world view?

      The paper does cover all TCs, but as I make clear in the intro, I have stuck to the term “hurricane” to avoid confusion.
