Twin Tornadoes In Nebraska: Are tornadoes getting worse because of global warming?

  • I believe it is

    There were six EF-5 tornadoes confirmed during 2011, the strongest category on the Enhanced Fujita scale. This ties with 1974 as the most (E)F-5 tornadoes during a single year (Please note that NOAA switched form using the Fujita (F) scale to the Enhanced-Fujita (EF) scale in 2007). The annual total number of fatalities from tornadoes was 551, the most in the 62-year period of record.

  • Global Warming is a Problem

    Yes, our weather and atmosphere are experiencing changes due to global warming. You just have to look at recent extreme weather events to see how much our weather patterns have changed and how we are going to continue to have unstoppable changes. The most recent example is the melting of the glaciers in Antarctica due to warming seas. We are getting dangerously close to a point of no return.

  • There is reason to believe so.

    Studies have shown a marked increase in tornado activity over the last several decades.

    2011 had the largest number of fatalities caused by tornadoes, ever.

    As of mid-January 2012, the 2011 confirmed tornado count stood at 1,625, with 93 tornado reports still pending for November and December. This places 2011 as the second or third most active year on record for number of tornadoes since the modern record began in 1950, depending on the confirmation rate of the end-of-year tornado reports.

    There were six EF-5 tornadoes confirmed during 2011, the strongest category on the Enhanced Fujita scale. This ties with 1974 as the most (E)F-5 tornadoes during a single year (Please note that NOAA switched form using the Fujita (F) scale to the Enhanced-Fujita (EF) scale in 2007). The annual total number of fatalities from tornadoes was 551, the most in the 62-year period of record.

    2008 had both the most active month on record and the largest number of fatalities in one month.

    The statistics show a correlation between increased carbon emissions, global temperatures and tornado activity in America.

  • Coldest winter on record

    Much to the dismay of those who buy into global warming, the past winter was the coldest on record for much of the US. Those of us ws who experienced temperatures close to negative fifty believe that maybe the global warming believers need to step outside a little more, and look at a thermometer.

  • No it's just more public now with internet, tv & stormchasers

    In my experience the tornadoes of today are just as bad as the tornadoes of the past. The only major difference is how quickly the information is spread via social media, the weather channel, etc. For example, just yesterday I had unofficial "storm chasers" posting all kinds of pictures that showed up on my Facebook feed. 20 years ago you'd read about a tornado in the paper. Now you see it on your computer or tv screen minutes after it occurs.

  • How do we know that tornadoes are formed by global warming.

    I believe that tornadoes form because of our seasons. This season was the coldest winter. How can it be because of global warming when our states have had a decrease in temperature. I believe that you people are crazy. What we need to believe is that it is because of our destruction of Earth.

  • They are just weather.

    No, tornadoes are not getting worse because of global warming, because there is no evidence that tornadoes are even getting worse. In fact, because we have better warning systems and shelters now, deaths from tornadoes are actually down. Weather comes and goes. Sometimes they are 100-year events, but that does not mean that things are worse in general.
