Where are Gore’s hurricanes?

A great piece on Watts Up With That? which takes Al Gore’s predictions in ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ that global warming and hurricanes are intrinsically connected and that warming results in stronger storms.

The media frequently refers to an increase in hurricane frequency, strength and damage as evidence of global warming, and it is a mantra that people seem to be accepting as a fact. Only there is no proven connection. The WUWT piece includes one section that is particularly worth sharing when confronted with trite assertions that man is warming the planet and causing harmful climate disruption:

‘With Copenhagen, Cancun, and the hottest year ever come and gone, you would think that global climate disruption was spinning up cyclones with reckless abandon.  Remember, after Katrina in 2005,  scientistspublishedalarmingpapers linking increases in hurricane activity worldwide to global warming.  Fast forward 5-years: the inconvenient truth is that aside from the Atlantic basin, global tropical cyclone or hurricane activity during 2010 has tanked to the lowest levels in decades.’

Sadly, Al Gore could not be reached for comment.

    “Sadly, Al Gore could not be reached for comment.”

    Perhaps he was ‘blown away’ by the observation? One can only wish.
