Global hurricane activity not getting worse, new report confirms

London, 16 April – The Global Warming Policy Foundation has today published its periodic review of global hurricane activity. The author, climate researcher Paul Homewood, says that official data is absolutely clear: hurricanes are neither increasing in number nor in intensity.

Homewood says:

“The observational data published by meteorological agencies in 2023 has confirmed once again that there are no upward trends in global hurricane activity since reliable records began in the 1970s.”

And Homewood calls on journalists to start reporting these undisputed facts to the public:

“While scientists are quite clear that we are not seeing any increase in hurricanes, the public have been scared into thinking that tropical storms are getting worse. Unless the mainstream media starts reporting empirical facts rather than misleading spin, it will continue to haemorrhage credibility and public trust.”
