If it wasn’t for this “quirk”, we’d be totes doomed from all the hurricanes created due to you driving a fossil fueled vehicle and daring to use electricity for Internet
A climatic quirk seems to be slightly shielding the U.S. coast during busy hurricane seasons, often weakening major storms just as they approach America’s beaches, a new study finds.
That could help explain why it’s been more than 11 years since a major hurricane with winds of more than 110 mph has hit the United States mainland.
Oh, and it seems we are “privileged”, too, while other nations get crushed!
“It’s a lucky byproduct for the United States coast,” Kossin said. “It’s really unfortunate that we’re the only ones that seem to be benefiting from this situation.”
Surprisingly, uber-Warmist Seth Borenstein, the article writer, fails to mention ‘climate change.’ But, you know this is a Narrative setter, meant to lead to more Excusemaking for the dearth of hurricanes making landfall on the US coast despite all the prognostications of doom from the Cult of Climastrology. The American Interest notes what the NY Times has to say about this study
When climatic conditions favor a lot of hurricane activity, they also create a buffer zone that weakens the storms as they approach the coastal United States.
It appears OK now to note that US hurricanes & damage have decreased
Not sure about the magic force field, but good news If holds up. https://t.co/yhT4aVXL2v
