Japan Times, Oct. 9, 2014: A supertyphoon [is] on course to hit Japan over the weekend… meteorologists said Wednesday. The monstrous storm…“strength is very much similar to Haiyan,”…said a meteorologist at the Meteorological Agency… Vongfong was registering gusts of the same strength… Its present course will see it smash into Japan some time over the weekend, just days after another typhoon…
Washington Post, Oct. 9, 2014: Imagery from satellite (and astronauts) illustrates what a powerful storm Super Typhoon Vongfong became this week… with gale-force winds covering around 340,000 square miles — about 70,000 square miles larger than the state of Texas… Super Typhoon Vongfong’s eye was estimated to be around 50 miles wide. Astronaut Reid Wiseman, Oct. 9, 2014: #SuperTyphoon #Vongfang – I’ve seen many from here, but none like this.
Voice of America, Oct. 9, 2014: The most powerful storm on the planet so far this year… is forecast to strike mainland Japan… Air Force weather flight chief Master Sergeant Tonya Trythall [said the] current location is one of the better places to sustain a tropical cyclone… “But as it starts turning… water start cooling off slightly [and there's] upper level winds… The storm itself is going to be stronger so it’s not going to tear it apart easily.”
NBC News, Oct. 9, 2014: “It’s safe to say Vongfong is the strongest storm on earth since Haiyan last year,” said [Weather Channel's] Michael Lowry… Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center said Thursday morning… ocean waves were already as high as 50 feet.
CNN, Oct. 8, 2014: At this point winds are at 285 kph, roughly 180 mph. By the way, that would be way above Category 5, if there was anything above Category 5, this could be a hypothetical Cat 6… Cloud field would stretch across the entire US, from Washington State to Washington DC… Among the strongest storms we’ve ever seen. >> Watch

Aha! Another Global Warming Lie fan!
Antarctic sea ice hits record levels as it reaches 20 MILLION square kilometres for time since records began in 1979.

Man, Japan has been taking a beating.
Still don't think radiation affects weather?
I do! radiation from the sun affects our weather everyday. Still not buying the global warming bit though, sorry.

Ah, another denier. So the people of the arctic, Greenland, anyone that lives near glaciers, as I do, should just ignore the rapidly retreating glaciers as what????? Old photos taken in South America, the Alps, Alaska, showing glaciers far, far larger than current size..... just photoshopped back in the late 1800's and early 1900s? No, there's nothing going on with the climate..... if your head is below ground level in the sand like an ostrich. Maybe where you are things are much the same, but that cannot be said in places that feel the change now and for the past number of years. Glacier National Park is losing its glaciers.... did you know that? The sea levels are rising for low lying island nations.... they're all just liars of course. The lack of sea ice for the walruses in the news lately, the lack of sea ice for the arctic tribes means they can't hunt and fish where they used to fish.... just.... not happening, right?
