Damn Global Warming

So back in May, we see this:
'Very active' hurricane season ahead

This year's north Atlantic hurricane season will be "very active," spawning eight to 10 hurricanes, the U.S.-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Monday.

NOAA's outlook, published on its website, predicts:

  • There will likely be 13 to 16 named storms, including tropical storms and hurricanes, compared with the 11 named storms seen in an average season.
  • Eight to 10 of this year's named storms will become hurricanes, meaning they will have sustained winds of at least 119 km/h, compared with the annual average of six.
  • Four to six of the hurricanes will reach an intensity of at least Category 3, with sustained winds of at least 178 km/h, though on average each season experiences only two.

But then from the same source a couple days ago, we see this:
No intense hurricanes this year, forecaster predicts

American hurricane expert William Gray has again downgraded his forecast for the 2006 Atlantic storm season, predicting one more hurricane and two more named storms but no intense hurricanes.

The new report released Tuesday calls for a hurricane season that is significantly calmer than those seen in recent years, with a total of six hurricanes among the 2006 season's 11 named storm systems.

It's all Bush's fault. He can't even get decent weather forecasters hired.

No, wait. "Global Warming®". That's it.
Too many infidels going to Hell, causing it to become overcrowded. This in turn is causing the ambient temperature on the planet to rise. We're fucked.

I read in India scientific daily news that this year has been the hottest year globally, for the last 1000 000 years. If the temperature rose with 2 degree more, the face of the earth will start to change. The last 10 years the temperature has rose with 0.5 degree pr year.
So all the talk about the end of the earth in 2012 start to become real.

Maybe. Unless it starts to cool down next year.

It's only about ten years ago that there were dire predictions of us moving into an Iceage, I believe they were using the same figures.
They must have got the decimal point in the wrong place.

Junk science. When will people start to realize THAT is the reality.
It's all marketing.
