A good, fact-filled post by Michael Snyder on The Economic Collapse Blog:
Why Is The Heartland Of America Being Ripped To Shreds By Gigantic Tornadoes That Are Becoming More Frequent And More Powerful?
"In 2009, there were 1146 tornadoes in the United States.
In 2010, there were 1282 tornadoes in the United States.
In 2011, there were 1691 tornadoes in the United States.
In 2012, we have already seen one of the worst tornado outbreaks ever recorded in the month of March in all of American history. As of Tuesday, there had been 326 tornadoes in the United States so far in 2011. That is about twice as many as usual for this time of the year.
In 2012, we are on pace to far exceed the total we saw in 2011."
At the end of his article, the blog author asks if we have any theories as to why we are getting such enormous storms year after year. My theory? It's God. He's coming.
