Yeah! - Where The Hell Are They?

Neal Boortz asks the question.....


In 2007, for the second year in a row, the climate "experts" warned us of a deadly hurricane season in the United States. In April of this year the Colorado State University hurricane forecasting team's predictions for the 2007 hurricane season were well reported in the American media. William Gray said that the Atlantic basin would see a "very active hurricane season" this year. More specifically, they forecast 17 named storms of which nine would become hurricanes. Five of those hurricanes were expected to develop into major storms. The reason for these major storms was, of course (all together now) .... GLOBAL WARMING!

Well, how did they do? Just about as well as they did for the 2006 hurricane season. A complete forecasting flop. There have been 14 named tropical storms in the Atlantic. Four of them developed into hurricanes. Only one of them was categorized as major. Very few of the storms ever reached this country. Tropical depression Humberto caused a bit of rain in mid-September. Felix reached category 4, but struck Central America. Tropical depression Erin hit Texas around August 15th with big-time 40 mph winds. In June tropical depression Barry went up the Eastern coast with sustained winds of about 35-40 mph.

That's pretty much it, folks.

So .. for the second year in a row the hurricane forecasting experts missed ... by a long shot. Thus far 2007 has seen the lowest tropical cyclone activity since 1977. For those of you who went to government schools ... that's 30 years. The North Atlantic hurricane season is currently 30% below normal. That's below ... as in "less than."

So .. all you global warming alarmists who were warning us of catastrophe brought on by global warming ... time to change your tune. Maybe global warming can be blamed for the lack of hurricanes? Hell, give it a try! Let us know how that one works out for you.

But then ... we still have a month left in hurricane season .. so anything could happen, I guess."

I just love "experts".....all the computer models are supposedly used....However, me thinks there is a good bit more "agenda" here than there is actual "prognostication!"
