    Beautiful, and informative!

    I think it would be awesome if someone could make a copy without the text!

    ...what a great contribution of a map...

    This is awesome, but I'm wondering why in the West Pacific Ocean basin there appears to be a dearth of bright green (Category 5) dots? There should be plenty of storms that surpass that intensity.

    It looks like an angry earth staring at us with a glaring eye.

    Comments at note the data sources which developed shortly after World War II and in 1977, before which hurricane spotting was, well, spotty, and answers a question above.

    How come the one in the Atlantic off Brazil that happened a few years ago is not on the map?

    NOT CO2, BUT DEICERS. CAPTURE Deicers from heavy duty Desalination Systems. Concentrated deicers like 32,500 p.p.m. Sodium Chloride & 7,100 p.p.m Magnesium Chloride are calving the Ice-shelves from the base. By erecting Zero Discharge Systems ( ZDS ) in Heavy Duty Desalination Systems around World the deicing of ice-shelves & Glaciers can be stopped. Moreover NASA's SEA SATELLITE detected more salts near the POLES. --> More Ice Masses & Glaciers + No Sea Rise + No Methane Escapes + No Ozone Holes + Intensities of Hurricanes Will reduce + No Extreme Weather + NO DROUGHTS + More VEGGIES -- >> AIR CONDITIONING OF MOTHER EARTH.
    Book publishing soon in US " Environmental Rapes & H. R. Abuses Lead to Climate Change Control " ( Full colors-500 pages ).

    Gorgeous--I like this polar-centric version better than the one on APOD today.

    In addition to the one off Brazil, I think one made landfall in Spain as a tropical storm a year or two ago. Maybe both it and the one off Brazil aren't powerful enough to appear here?
