It was not the largest 'typhoon in recorded history to make landfall'.
I don't normally use wikipedia, but in this case, it shows just how wrong that statement is. There have been at least 20 typhoons in that area that have been stronger. And that is not including the rest of the world.
Where did they get the 300-500km/h figure from?
According to the Phillipine Met Agency, they didn't see anything greater than 275 km/h (including the gusts).
But let's not let the facts get in the way of some scare-mongering.
And according to the IPCC, they have not detected any change in typhoon activity due to 'climate change'.
Back to topic. It's all Abbott's fault.
It is definitely one of the strongest Typhoons in history, talk about clutching at straws to try and "prove" it has nothing to do with climate change.
But regardless, does it even matter? In the scheme of things - does it actually matter if it was or wasn't the "strongest" typhoon in history? Thousands dead, huge amount of orphans and a million homeless. And there are posts here trying to make out that it really isn't that bad.
Yep. There is so much to add to this thread.
They just said they would adopt gonski before the election, probably because they didn't even their own policy.
They keep digging a hole...let's hope it gets bigger and bigger!
