Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Media Claims Hurricanes Have Become More Frequent And Intense”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The mainstream media has claimed that hurricanes have grown more frequent and intense in recent years, though scientists have found no major changes in hurricane activity in over a century.

With the landfall of Hurricane Ian in Florida, the media has repeatedly instilled fear over the impacts of climate change and its alleged worsening effects on the Category 4 storm. Media outlets including The Washington Post, AP News, Miami Herald and Reuters have immediately framed their coverage around the climate crisis and its role in intensifying storms.

The Washington Post published a story on Thursday titled, “How climate change is rapidly fueling super hurricanes.” The Guardian issued a piece called, “Hurricane Ian is no anomaly. The climate crisis is making storms more powerful,” and the Miami Herald published an editorial Saturday titled, “No, it’s not too soon. After Hurricane Ian, it’s time to say ‘climate change,’ Gov. DeSantis.”

Additionally, Axios published a piece with the headline, “Hurricane Ian’s climate warning”  and NPR posted the piece, “How climate change is making storms such as Hurricane Ian stronger.”

An overview of current research results from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) contradicts the claims of several media outlets. As the media warns of climate change contributing to strong hurricanes, NOAA said that landfalling hurricanes have shown a negative trend from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.
