I remember posting something like this, in a thread; said tounge-in-cheek. Humour meets Reality?
I think the real reason for the hurricanes is all the hot air coming out of MoveOn.org. What a crock.
I guess that gives him the power to change it too----maybe the liberals should behave!
That coupled with Michael Moore and a bean burrito.
Hurricanes like all weather phenomena are cyclical. I guess GWB must have been around in the mid 1500 too. I did a googls on 100 year hurrican data. interesting results - here are two.
The last time we had hurricanes forming up like on an assembly line was 1995. Anybody remember who was president then?
Anyway, here's a more scientific opinion than that of moveon:
Downward trends in the frequency of intense Atlantic hurricanes during the past five decades
(Geophysical Research Letters, 23, 1697-1700,1996)
"There is concern that the enhanced greenhouse effect may be affecting extreme weather events such as tropical cyclones. The North Atlantic basin offers a reliable, long-term record of tropical cyclone activity, though it may not be representative of tropical cyclones throughout the rest of the tropics. The most recent years of 1991 through 1994 have experienced the quietest tropical cyclone activity on record in terms of frequency of tropical storms, hurricanes, and intense hurricanes. This was followed by the 1995 hurricane season, one of the busiest in the past 50 years. Despite 1995's activity, a long-term (five decade) downward trend continues to be evident primarily in the frequency of intense hurricanes. In addition, the mean maximum intensity (i.e., averaged over all cyclones in a season) has decreased, while the maximum intensity attained by the strongest hurricane each year has not shown a significant change. "
I thought this was going to be about a story on theonion.com, but it's actually true. What a bunch of fucking dipshits on that site. They probably blame him for traffic, impotence, cancer, and who knows what else.
People acting out of hatred lose the ability to be rational at times.
desperation breeds insainty.
