All those corrupt scientists, getting rich off of their false claims that climate change is caused by humans...

Yes, yes that's what I claiming, they're getting rich not that the consensus you claim is not what that lady's cardboard sign is representing. Or that there is hard data that shows storms are not getting worse. Whatever, I'm part of the grand anti-science plot that thinks life will be around in 100 years. I mean it's only been on this planet for 3-4 billion years or so.

I can't find a graphic or chart show any trendlines of worldwide tropical cyclone intensity over the decades.

Look up the ACE index. It becomes very clear that tropical cyclone intensity is roughly the same as it was in 1960s. Not a conspiracy or made up fact. That's why you don't see climatologists climbing onboard these statements much about storms getting worse.

For the tl:dr crowd...

Summary for Atlantic Hurricanes and Global Warming

In summary, neither our model projections for the 21st century nor our analyses of trends in Atlantic hurricane and tropical storm counts over the past 120+ yr support the notion that greenhouse gas-induced warming leads to large increases in either tropical storm or overall hurricane numbers in the Atlantic. One modeling study projects a large (~100%) increase in Atlantic category 4-5 hurricanes over the 21st century, but we estimate that this increase may not be detectable until the latter half of the century.

Therefore, we conclude that despite statistical correlations between SST and Atlantic hurricane activity in recent decades, it is premature to conclude that human activity–and particularly greenhouse warming–has already caused a detectable change in Atlantic hurricane activity. (“Detectable” here means the change is large enough to be distinguishable from the variability due to natural causes.) However, human activity may have already caused some some changes that are not yet detectable due to the small magnitude of the changes or observation limitations, or are not yet confidently modeled (e.g., aerosol effects on regional climate).

We also conclude that it is likely that climate warming will cause hurricanes in the coming century to be more intense globally and to have higher rainfall rates than present-day hurricanes. In our view, there are better than even odds that the numbers of very intense (category 4 and 5) hurricanes will increase by a substantial fraction in some basins, while it is likely that the annual number of tropical storms globally will either decrease or remain essentially unchanged. These assessment statements are intended to apply to climate warming of the type projected for the 21st century by IPCC AR4 scenarios, such as A1B.

The relatively conservative confidence levels attached to these projections, and the lack of a claim of detectable anthropogenic influence at this time contrasts with the situation for other climate metrics, such as global mean temperature. In the case of global mean surface temperature, the IPCC 5th Assessment Report (2013) presents a strong body of scientific evidence that most of the global warming observed over the past half century is very likely due to human-caused greenhouse gas emissions.

China now has double the solar capacity of the U.S.  They're installing a soccer field of solar panels every hour of every day.  China is putting us to shame.

Good elections results last night. And then America reminds me why I'm embarrassed about her. SYRIA just joined the Paris climate deal, leaving US as the *only* nation on Earth opposed.

So by "America first," they meant America last.
