Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer reports: 

3,264 Days Without a Major Hurricane Strike

October 1st, 2014 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

Who would have predicted it? As of today (October 1) it’s been nearly 9 years since a major hurricane (Cat 3 or greater) has struck the U.S., the last being Wilma in October, 2005.

Remember the 2005 hurricane season? Landfalling hurricanes right and left. Katrina! This was going to be the new normal in a Global Warming world.

Then the bottom dropped out of tropical activity.

As the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season slowly winds down, here the latest tropical outlook from the National Hurricane Center:

Pretty dead. The number of named storms as of today continues below normal:

One might explain the current drought in tropical systems on El Nino, except even that has mostly fizzled compared to early predictions.

While a few “experts” claim to “see the fingerprint” of human caused climate change in the latest severe weather events (which, paradoxically, haven’t increased), it’s good to take a step back and point out that the Emperor’s Tarot card readers have no clothes.
