Yasi, a Force of Nature, Not Man-Made Global Warming

Anyone who has spent a few nights in a tent during a storm can tell you: The world doesn’t care all that much if you live or die.
Anthony Doerr-writer

For those with friends in Australia, eyes are turning to weather channels showing the massive cyclone, Yasi, as it begins to hammer the coast. To get an idea of the power of this storm, there is an article in Watts Up With That, http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/02/01/the-approach-of-cyclone-yasi-as-told-by-the-data/, showing the automated readings from the evacuated weather station on Willis Island, right up until Yasi blasted it off the air, and possibly off the planet.

Apparently someone has said that cyclone ground falls in Australia are unusual; although I have not been able to locate that quote, Seven Goddard, in his blog, http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/cyclones-are-a-rare-event-in-australia/, preempted that argument.

If it has not already happened, there will soon be stories of Yasi being the result of man made global warming. Australians blogger JoNova, posted in http://joannenova.com.au/2011/02/yasi-is-a-monster-but-not-an-unusual-one/, on the expert work of Jon Nott, who has compiled a record of cyclone strikes on Australia going back 5,000 years. It seems that Yasi is huge, but not unusually so when compared to cyclones of the past.

Do not be sucked into that man made global warming trap. It is not true.
