My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


More Climate Change Heresy 

I've come to enjoy a certain schadenfreud over the past couple of years over the fairly regular trickle of stories that have been coming out for the last few years debunking one or another of the central tenets of the Church of Climate Change. Tonight I have found another:

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. . .

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.

At some point the weight of stories coming out will be enough to tip the scales of the climate change debate back towards sanity. I know the Left has come to believe that the President and all his religious-zealot friends are the ones that disbelieve science, but its really the High Priest himself, Al Gore, that wants to live on science that is five years old and constantly getting refuted.

Look, I'm not trying to say that global warming and climate change do not exist--the numbers tell the story. But only sort of. There are a lot of numbers that tell a little bit different story, and it's one that shouldn't cause anywhere near the hysteria the Left needs to take control over our lives and our economy.
