Tornadoes have completely stopped.
The severe lack of tornadoes is a part of the severe weather changes caused by global cooling/ozone hole/global warming/climate change/etc.
In the whirlwind that is 2018, there has been a notable lack of high-end twisters.
We’re now days away from this becoming the first year in the modern record with no violent tornadoes touching down in the United States. Violent tornadoes are the strongest on a 0 to 5 scale, or those ranked EF4 or EF5.It was a quiet year for tornadoes overall, with below normal numbers most months. Unless you’re a storm chaser, this is not bad news. The low tornado count is undoubtedly a big part of the reason the 10 tornado deaths in 2018 is also vying to be a record low.
While we still have several days to go in 2018, and some severe weather is likely across the South to close it out, odds favor the country making it the rest of the way without a violent tornado.
If and when that happens, it will be the first time since the modern record began in 1950.
2005 came close to reaching this mark. That year, the first violent tornado didn’t occur until Nov. 15, much later than typical for the first of the year, which tends to come in early spring.
This year’s goose-egg may seem to fit a recent pattern.
The recent pattern is that tornadoes are dropping in intensity every year, consistently.
When I was a kid, people were getting sucked up left and right, and one time a giant octopus traveled in a tornado and attacked a land-village, smooshing many children with his oozy claws before it died of reverse-drowning.
The lack of tornadoes is a severe threat to the stability of the environment and will lead to further deterioration of the ozone and the ice caps. It will also lead to the weather getting hotter or colder.
This is because people drive cars.
We have to force French peasants to pay extra taxes to the Chinese government in order to stop these developments.
