No, Hurricanes Are Not Getting Worse

With the start of the 2023 hurricane season, the usual suspects are spouting Big Climate's talking points about hurricanes. The good news is the talking points are not true as indicated by the peer-reviewed information below. 
Dr. Roger Pielke, Jr.
Neither major hurricanes (above) nor hurricanes in general are striking the United States more frequently. The trend since 1900 is flat. 

Worldwide, the trend is flat, as well. The ACE Index (below) measures both hurricane duration and intensity. 
The same people who told us 2005 (with major hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma striking the USA) was the "new normal" were absolutely wrong. Keep in mind that it is the same people who are spreading the gloom and doom today. 

While counterintuitive, there is new research which shows hurricanes were more common when earth was cooler

Weather is extraordinarily complex. Be wary of people who peddle simplistic theories.
