Despite 2011, study shows tornadoes not getting worse

For everybody else...:
"There is absolutely no evidence of an increase in damaging tornadoes," the authors write in the study, and they add that the number of U.S. tornadoes might actually have decreased since accurate records began in the 1950s.

About face: U.S. tornado activity near low point in modern record

I wonder how many older articles I can find 'linking' tornados to climate change / global warming?...

Thanks, I appreciate the accomodation, but I believe I will save some Internet smack talk space for Eli and the Giants...they really are adding some excellent fuel to the smack talk fire. Brady is wearing himself out putting up forty+ points a game to bail out the second worse defense in the league...second behind...you guessed it...well...OK...the Giants defense is a little soft. :cheers:
