I've been hearing alot of talk about Global Warming causing the rise in number of
violent super storm cells such as Hurricanes and Cyclones, and that it will only get worse from here.
So I checked with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology site for some stats and here they are.

Ok so as you can all see the rate of both severity and frequency of Tropical Cyclones in Australia
have fallen from the 1970's. Some of the data from the 1970's is incomplete and may be higher than
what is recorded.

I figured you would get back with your data ...yea and I think if you look at hurricanes making land fall in North America you will see the same thing ..I think that that big ball of fire in the sky has the biggest influence and right now She is pretty quiet when she should be very active ...
