No anthropogenic climate change influence on Atlantic tropical cyclone behaviour and concomitant damage has yet been detected, though such an influence is projected in the future. Using projections from a recent study in Science I show that anthropogenic signals are very unlikely to emerge in a time series of normalised US tropical cyclone losses at time scales of less than a century. This result extends more generally to global weather-related natural disaster losses.
