Shock News!!!! Atmospheric CO2 May Be Inversely Related To Hurricane Activity!!!!

Okay, let’s look at the ACE values for the last 30 years vs atmospheric CO2.

As a reminder,

Accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) is a measure used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to express the activity of individual tropical cyclones and entire tropical cyclone seasons, particularly the North Atlantic hurricane season. It uses an approximation of the wind energy used by a tropical system over its lifetime and is calculated every six-hour period. The ACE of a season is the sum of the ACEs for each storm and takes into account the number, strength, and duration of all the tropical storms in the season.

Data source is here and here for CO2

The graph is the 12month moving average of global ACE values versus atmospheric CO2 levels above the lunatics stated magical number of 280 ppm.  It seems, the higher the CO2 level, the lower cyclone activity we have.

    360 ppm seems to be the break even point….
    After that, temps went down, ACE went down, tornadoes, etc etc

    What I would like to see is how they were during the high CO2 periods of the Jurassic.
