Self awareness and Atlantic Hurricanes

I laughed out loud reading this story on zero Atlantic Hurricanes in August.

““The very inactive season so far has been a bit of a head-scratcher,” Crawford said in an e-mail interview. Air temperatures from the Caribbean to Africa have been warmer than normal this year, reducing the instability in the atmosphere that drives storm development, he said.”

Isn’t that funny. The excuse for why there are no hurricanes is because warmth reduces instability!

Wasn’t global warming supposed to produce more hurricanes? Do they lack self awareness? Or do they totally lack shame?

Why just 5 days ago Popular Science did a story on why Hurricanes should be named after Deniers. I won’t link to them … they are idiots.

But they said: ”

” A new petition argues that we should name storms after the people whose climate change-denying positions are exacerbating the problem. Look out for Hurricane Michele Bachmann.”

Scientists can’t pin down any specific storm to climate change, but on the whole, storms are getting worse because of (human-caused) climate change.”

But now, just 5 days later (after zero Atlantic Hurricanes in August),  if you google “global warming hurricanes” there are suddenly a bunch of stories like:

“Many scientists have blamed global warming for more intense recent hurricane seasons and for the more destructive storms that are predicted in years to come, but a new study says climate change could eventually help safeguard the U.S. Atlantic Coast from hurricanes.”

They should be ashamed to call themselves “scientists”. Snake Oil Salesman is more like it. (Look it up).

I almost wish for a record number of Hurricanes in September just to watch them all get whiplash. But I don’t really want more hurricanes.
