Good news friends, at long last we have proof that global warming is real.
NEW YORK (Reuters) -The 2007 hurricane season may be less severe than forecast due to cooler-than-expected water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic, private forecaster WSI Corp said on Tuesday.
The season will bring 14 named storms, of which six will become hurricanes and three will become major hurricanes, WSI said in its revised outlook. WSI had previously expected 15 named storms of which eight would become hurricanes and four would become major hurricanes.
“Because the ocean temperatures have not yet rebounded from the significant drop in late spring, we have decided to reduce our forecast numbers slightly,” said Todd Crawford, a WSI seasonal forecaster.
The energy and insurance industries are keenly watching the 2007 storm season after the record damage caused by hurricanes two years ago.
Now, I know many of you are puzzled… You’ve been told repeatedly by Al Gore and the like that Global Warming causes hurricanes but that was before the 2006 hurricane season was a dud so the global warming hucksters made a new theory that Global Warming reduced hurricanes.
Somebody call the U.N.
Who gets the credit for the reduced hurricanes? According to Bill Clinton Repubicans are stopping hurricanes.
But if the researchers are feeling a little down about the hurricane prediction debacles, there is always hope for the prediction of a new Ice Age, blamed on global warming might just come true. After all, stranger things have happened.
The mockery above is fun and all but let’s get down to the thing we like to call reality. Hurricanes are the most studied and the most modeled meteorological phenomena in existence. If all the forecasters and all the super computers can’t even model what will happen next year in one little corner of the globe, how on earth can they claim to be able to model the climate of the entire planet 100 years from now?
The answer is, they can’t.
