During last years exceptional hurricane season, some global warming advocates pointed to a connection between the storms and warmer oceans.
By the end of July last year we were already finished with the “G” storm. This year we’ve only seen the “B.” By the end of the first week in August 2005, we had added two more storms to the list. Right now, the Hurricane Center is looking at some candidates, but none with imminent potential.
In other words, it’s likely we’ll still be at “B” at the point in 2005 we were looking at “I.”
Will any of last year’s advocates return to explain what’s changed? To quote a famous Connecticut furniture salesman, “I doubt it.”
