The chart clearly shows 2011 as an anomaly in an otherwise historically benign stretch of years with docile activity. The global warming alarmists certainly won't let this anomaly pass without writing a slew of articles claiming this year's activity is caused directly by man-made global warming without a shred of empirical connective evidence, much less a logical supposition that takes into account the previous decade of docile tornadic activity.

I have to wonder how much of these data are influenced by the detection technology. There is a significant jump in the number of tornadoes starting in 1995. I would guess that was when weather services started using better radar.

The AGW crowd will have trouble selling its drivel. We have had a cold spring in 2011 so it is hard to blame warming. And if you look at the data you do not see anything to support the alarmists.
