Default Global warming causes hurricanes... oh wait... never mind.

:tonka:


WASHINGTON - Global warming isn't to blame for the recent jump in hurricanes in the Atlantic, concludes a study by a prominent federal scientist whose position has shifted on the subject.

Not only that, warmer temperatures will actually reduce the number of hurricanes in the Atlantic and those making landfall, research meteorologist Tom Knutson reported in a study released Sunday.

In the past, Knutson has raised concerns about the effects of climate change on storms. His new paper has the potential to heat up a simmering debate among meteorologists about current and future effects of global warming in the Atlantic.

Ever since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, hurricanes have often been seen as a symbol of global warming's wrath. Many climate change experts have tied the rise of hurricanes in recent years to global warming and hotter waters that fuel them.

Another group of experts, those who study hurricanes and who are more often skeptical about global warming, say there is no link. They attribute the recent increase to a natural multi-decade cycle.

Fortunately for you, you've never smelled my cat's farts...that causes global vomiting!

Then again, so does the idea of global warming. Anyone else have a way to scare the public and make money off of it? My favorite, latest scam is the fear of what will happen to beachfront property. I am sure real estate investors are behind the fear of beachfront property being under water in 50 years, because it supposedly already causing property values to drop in Florida. I'm predicting: price drop, gobble by investors, change in "climate", rise in prices...
