    The Eastern United states got over 200 people killed from two different tornado systems in the last two months and now...

    More recently, Yellowstone just got 25 feet of snow!!!!

    What a year this has been...

    In Canada, we have been having a strange year across the board as well. A very late spring in Alberta and here in the Yukon, though at least we have had fairly average precipitation and because of our mountainous terrain, tornadoes are unknown. I don't believe I have ever witnessed or heard tell of anything larger than a 'dust devil' although we can get some fair storm winds. Only once have I known 100mph+ winds in these parts, and that was on Atlin Lake. B.C., an early September storm. Watching the news, it is heart-wrenching to witness the damage in Joplin and that being but one of the areas so affected, though possibly the area with the most extreme devastation. There is more weather related events in the news than I can recall of any past year.

    Proponents of the global warming scam would like to tie this recent tornado outbreak in to their cause, but lack the evidence to support it.
    The real cause is found in what they are not reporting. There is a 22 year sunspot and solar flare cycle.
    The severe weather peaks out at the midpoint or the coolest point of these cycles. 1925, 1947, 1969, 1991, 2013...
    The high solar activity peaks are 1914, 1936, 1958, 1980, 2002, 2024... Recognize any of theses years in history?
    1936...dust bowl years. 1980 was the hottest summer on record.

    The great tri-state twister of 1925 hit at the peak cool year back then.
    The Oklahoma death record setter hit 22 years later in 1947.
    22 years later hurricane Camille hit in 1969.
    The next cycle (1990-1991-1992) were record years for F-5 tornadoes across Kansas...

    -F-5 Hesston, Ks tornado March 13, 1990.
    -F-5 Andover, Ks tornado April 26,1991.
    June 19, 1992 - Largest Kansas hailstorm in over 40 years cut a swath across half a state with softball size hail...

    This solar cycle will hit it's low peak again in 2013. We are still two years away from the worst weather.

    Yeah, I recognize those dates - like hurricane Camile in 1969, etc.

    Thing is though, your "evidence is FAR from being proof of ANY kind. There have been MANY terrible storm events (I'm old enough to remember most of them since I'm 69) that don't fall anywhere near the pattern you're claiming.

    You have to to look at ALL severe weather events for the entire 20th century, not just cherry-pick the dates you want - and when you do, you'll find out the sunspot claim is totally bogus. :shrug:

    I'll agree with you that many powerful weather events have happened outside of the influence of this cycle.
    There are other factors to be sure. El-nino's, La nina's, jet stream locations, etc...

    The most powerful twister ever clocked with doppler radar was dead right in the wrong end of my cycle pattern defying it's influence.
    That was the 1999 Moore, Oklahoma tornado with winds clocked at 318 mph.
    There are many others...1955 Udall, Ks., 1997 Jarrell, Tx., 2007 Greensberg, Ks., that don't fit the pattern. These F-5's wiped entire towns off the map, some well after dark.
    They were isolated events powered by the combination of many factors, not the solar cycle I mentioned... that's true.

    Still the overall effect on weather that the 22 year solar flare and sunspot cycle has can not be dismissed as "totally bogus".
    It does in my opinion have a significant influence on weather patterns on a consistent basis.

    Camille in 1969 was only the second category 5 hurricane to ever hit the U.S. mainland.
    Hurricane Andrew in 1992 was the third and last one. It stuck 23 years after Camille. Only one year off the 22 year pattern.
    That being said, I would absolutely add the super tornado outbreak of 2011 to the list of statistics supporting the effects of this repeating solar cycle which will not peak until 2013.

    And, I'm sure someone will blame this on "Global Warming." However, if you look at last year's weather activity and compare it to this year's, you'll find that both average out to what we would expect in a 2-year period. I remember asking myself last year "where the fuck are all the tornadoes?" because I was so disappointed (not that I'm sick in the head, but because I find them fascinating).

    Plus, NOAA is saying this has nothing to do with GW.

    It's been raining forever here in Oregon--I'm sick of it, and my joints are aching. We expect a lot of rain here, but this has been an exceptionally wet season.

    Where I live up high in the mountains of Northeast PA, we get intense late April storms followed by May showers. I have video proof of this as I love recording nature.

    But funny thing- those April storms are now June tornadoes.

    Wonder why.

    We have been mostly in drought for the past 13 years here-except when we got hit by hurricanes or tropical storms!
    Plus when I was a kid the normal high in summer' was about 93F. Now it's more like 100.
