Oops! No March Tornadoes? Climate Alarmists Perplexed

The U.S. Tornado count for March 2015 stands at — zero. That’s right: Zero. Zilch. Nada. This is remarkable, since March is Tornado Month in the United States. It is also remarkable in that the alarmists have been predicting that anthropogenic (manmade) global warming, AGW, would lead to more frequent and ever more destructive “extreme” or “severe” weather events, including hurricanes and tornadoes. But it hasn’t happened.

The new lack of severe weather during the tornado season is now being described as “historic” and “uncharted territory.” A television weather report for ABC’s WMAR Baltimore on March 19, entitled, “Historic! Severe Weather Count Hits Record Low Levels,” reported:

March is typical a cold month featuring snow for the northern states as we transition from winter to early spring. However, during the month of March a battle between the warmth and cold intensifies across the south. March can bring amazing swings in temperature which creates an imbalance in the atmosphere thus producing nasty severe weather outbreaks.

“We are in uncharted territory with respect to lack of severe weather” says Greg Carbin the warning coordination meteorologist from the Storm Prediction Center. “This has never happened in the record of SPC watches dating back to 1970.”
