The current typhoon MeAnn (local name "Falcon") in the Philippines is the 6th for this year. Last year, a big El Nino year, there were only about 12 typhoons. This year, it looks like we will surpass the average of 19 typhoons a year.

It is indeed unfair that we are still being fed with idiotic claims of "unequivocal warming" or "man-made climate change" by the various warming camps and energy rent-seekers. By not tellig the truth of natural climate cycles, that the warming phase is over and we are entering a cooling phase for many years, people are not being prepared for the severe cooling that is facing us. We are told to get ready for mroe drought, more "water crisis", when what we should prepare is more rains, more flooding, more snow.
