    One of the keynote predictions of APGW was more frequent and more powerful hurricanes. We were going to be facing Katrina type storms on a regular basis. Well, it isn't happening. In fact, hurricane activity and ACE (accumulated cyclone energy) are near all time lows. Not just this season, but for several seasons. Apparently, natural variation wins again. From an article in the Washington Post by a leading atmospheric scientist:

    Their new pitch: Lack of hurricanes indicates intense climate change.

    Their the beauty of their decision to change it from global warming to climate change. They will not stop until they are able to stunt the energy policies of the 3rd world nations by making them purchase their expensive inefficient "green" energies....they want a global energy monopoly.

    With the climate change mantra they can get away with anything.

    More cloudy than normal----------------climate change
    Hotter than normal----------------------climate change
    Colder than normal----------------------climate change
    Birds going south a week earlier--------climate change
    Less hurricanes--------------------------climate change
    More hurricanes--------------------------climate change
    Any slight variation----------------------climate change
    no variation------------------------------climate change
    everything-------------------------------climate change

    There are the same people who tried to argue that global warming would lead to an ice age.

    It's the Climate Change? That's their phony ace in the hole argument and reason why they changed the name of Global Warning to "Climate Change."

    Here's a graph showing that we are now in a record period of no US landfalling major hurricanes...over 2700 days and counting

    Shouldn't you be more concerned with the failure of the Global Climate Model predictions than base terminology?

    I am more concerned with the models than terminology, but as I weigh the variety of viewpoints on the issue, one thing I consider is veracity of the source.

    Hurricanes will continue to wreak havoc all across our country and we should buy more and more Property & Casualty Insurance to protect ourselves.

    Don't know about the pacific or Indian ocean basins, the Atlantic season was held back by a pocket of dry air that hung out over the Atlantic this year.

    But the graph about hurricanes hitting the US is kind of silly, we are a small part of the Atlantic basin and Mexico has been clobbered the last few years, it's more random variation than anything. Larger hurricane activity info (like the OP) is a much better judge, as are longer timeframes to look at.

    and if they can't accurately model a hurricane 5 days out with all the precision data they have at their fingertips how in the *(&^*(^ can they accurately model the entire climate of the planet 100 years out???

    Was just reading on it a bit, looks like LA or Western FLA, but a weak storm at most. Might affect the game though depending on timing, right now they have it for Friday night ashore, but who knows if it makes that schedule or how long the rain will stick around, would depend on how fast it moved I guess.
