Hurricanes Igor and Tomas get their names retired

The names Tomas and Igor will no longer be used to name hurricanes in the Atlantic, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced this March. Hurricane Igor made landfall near Cape Race, Newfoundland on September 21, 2010, and was that island's most damaging hurricane in 75 years, with $200 million in damage. Hurricane Tomas smashed through the Lesser Antilles Islands on October 30 - 31, 2010, dealing a particularly harsh blow to St. Lucia, where eight died and damage was estimated at $500 million. Tomas also killed 35 people on Haiti, and contributed to a cholera epidemic that killed thousands.

The retirement of hurricane names
The WMO maintains a list of hurricane names for the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific that repeats itself every six years. The names Igor and Tomas in the Atlantic would have appeared again in 2016, but will be replaced by Ian and Tobias. Each spring, the WMO meets to decide if any names should be retired from the list, due to notable death or destruction caused by one of the past season's storms. Any country that is a member of the WMO can request that a name be retired. If a country seriously affected by a hurricane does not request retirement of the name, then the name will not be retired. In the recent past, Mexico, in particular, has been reluctant to request retirement significant storms that have affected them. In 2010, two significant hurricanes affected the country, but Mexico chose not to request retirement of either: Hurricane Alex, which killed twelve people and did $1.5 billion in damage, and Hurricane Karl, which killed 22 and did $206 million in damage. Back in 2005, Mexico also did not request retirement of Hurricane Emily, which made two landfalls in Mexico as a major hurricane, destroying thousands of buildings, but not claiming any lives. A new storm named Emily will appear this year, as we are recycling the names from 2005 that were not retired (2005 holds the record for most retired names, with five.) Probably the best example of a hurricane that did not get its name retired, but deserved to, was Hurricane Gordon of 1994, which killed 1145 people on Haiti. Haiti did not send a representative to the 1995 WMO meeting when retirements for 1994 were decided. Gordon did not affect any other countries strongly enough to motivate them to request retirement, and the name Gordon will be used again in 2012.

Since Atlantic hurricanes began getting women's names in 1953, 76 names have been retired, an average of 1.3 retired names per year. The list includes one tropical storm, Allison of 2001, that caused billions in damage from its heavy rains. The storm with the most appearances so far is Arlene, which has appeared nine times: 1959, 1963, 1967, 1971, 1981, 1987, 1993, 1999, 2005. Arlene will make its tenth appearance this year. One exception to the retirement rule: before 1979, some storm names were simply dropped. For example, in 1966, Fern was substituted for Frieda, and no reason was given. Only three Eastern Pacific hurricanes have had their names retired--Hurricane Ismael of 1995, Hurricane Pauline of 1997, and Hurricane Kenna of 2002. All of these storms hit Mexico.

Cool Katrina animation
A new visualization created by Advanced Visualization Laboratory at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois shows Hurricane Katrina spinning over the Gulf of Mexico during a 36-hour period in August, 2005. The animation is part of a full-length planetarium film called Dynamic Earth screened at the Fulldome UK festival on March 12 - 13. You can see the video at the newscientist.com or DynamicEarth web sites. The video description: Trajectories follow moist air rising into intense "hot tower" thunderstorms, and trace strong winds around the eye wall; rapidly rising air is yellow, sinking air blue. The sun, moon, and stars show the passing of time. The visualization highlights Katrina's awesome power and fierce beauty.

I'll be back with a new post Tuesday or Wednesday.

Well, the per capita listings may not tell the whole story either.

Look at the latest (2010) listings:

1 Iceland 36,583.70
2 Norway 27,636.29
3 Finland 16,551.51
4 Qatar 16,476.96
5 Canada 16,009.10
6 Kuwait 14,933.93
7 Sweden 14,846.05
8 Bahrain 13,860.13
9 United Arab Emirates 13,750.16
10 Luxembourg 13,268.26
11 United States 12,606.93

Where's China (with, as you say, a population of 4 times greater than the US)?

#80 China 2,568.33

So Iceland uses about 2.9 times more electricy, per capita, than the US (and about 13.9 times more per capita than China).

What's Iceland's energy policy?

BTW, here's my source:

Per capita electricy usage, 2010

Good point. When a survey is done stating their findings and providing a ranking, the headline should be more clear as to what they are ranking.

Hardly.

The US uses CONSIDERABLY more energy than China, despite the population difference, and our expenditures on renewable energy do not measure up to that difference.

As of 2008:

USA: 87,216 KWh/capita
China: 18,608 KWh/capita

So we use approximately 4.6 times the energy of a country that is around 4 times our size in population. Currently, their renewable energy productions is just over 8% which beats the US by a slight margin.

They are spending at least twice as much as the US on renewable energy. The also have this strange concept that a lot of other countries have that we don't called an "Energy Policy". This energy policy states that they will have at least 20% of their energy coming from renewable sources by 2020. This is enforced by the government and considering the massive strides they've taken already it looks like they could very well achieve or surpass this goal.

We have no such energy policy, and in fact have lots of groups opposed to any such government mandated construct (here's looking at you Tea Party). We have lots of rich and powerful people actively working AGAINST any such policy.

Put simply, China is going to kick our collective butts up and down renewable energy street unless a major change in sentiment happens in this country. And if the Tea Party is any indication, that isn't going to happen anytime soon.

I wasn't doubting that we were getting our collective rear ends handed to us. What I was getting at is that there are several measures at hand... renewable energy generation overall in absolute terms, renewable energy generation as a percentage of overall, renewable energy funding, and all of those on a per capita basis.

We may generate more electricity via renewable in absolute terms, but as a percentage of total generation, we may be well behind due to our increased demand for energy overall. (does that make sense?)

Looking at the forecast for the next week, it looks like the cold that's been hanging around for the past couple of days will finally be pushed out by some eastbound heat. Starting tomorrow, areas along the Pacific coast will start to warm up. By Thursday and Friday, much of the country will be spring-like and then some, with 100 degree readings in the desert southwest and snow-eating 70s in the central Rockies. Over the weekend, the nation's midsection will be pleasant, with about every location above freezing both days. Of course, the mid-40s and higher temps in the upper Midwest will help to kick start the snowmelt right on schedule, so we'll doubtless be looking at flooding in many areas by early next week. But overall, it should be a nice first week of April.

We were on Lake Okeechobee. We lived on a Chris*Craft back then and headed for the locks in case of storm surge. It was quite impressive at our location. Here is David as a strong cat-4 after crossing the island of Dominica..

The study probably did not use a per capita basis, but rather an absolute amount. For example, if we generate 4000MW of renewable energy, and China generates 5000MW, they beat us in absolute terms. In per capita terms, we blow them out of the water, since they have a population 3-4 times ours.
