Enviros and hot air....

One of the tenets of the environmentalism movement holds that as a result of increased man-made CO2 emissions, we can expect to see more frequent occurrences of extreme weather such as hurricanes and tornadoes.  Of course, such assertions can be tested against actual data.  Usually, such tests prove the enviros wrong, as with the case I present in this OLS post:
In a blow to those that want to link increased severe weather with global warming/climate change, a new record low has been set according to NOAA tornado data. At the same time, it has been 2750 days (7 years, 6 months, 11 days) since the last major Hurricane (Cat 3 or greater) hit the USA on October 24th 2005 when hurricane Wilma made landfall. Each new day is a new record in this major hurricane drought.
