Warmer earth may mean less storms

Who do these people think they are kidding? We have had non stop warnings over the years telling us about global warming and all the harm it is supposedly doing to our planet. Then we have the terrible hurricanes in Burma. Now today I see this pile of crap:

Warmer earth may mean less storms

A top US government scientist has performed a U-turn on climate change, saying global warming is not responsible for the recent increase in Atlantic hurricanes.

In fact, warmer temperatures will actually reduce the number of hurricanes in the Atlantic and those making landfall, research meteorologist Tom Knutson says in a new study.
In the past, Mr Knutson had raised concerns about the effects of climate change on storms. His new paper has the potential to heat up a simmering debate among meteorologists about current and future effects of global warming in the Atlantic.

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.

Another group of experts, those who study hurricanes and who are more often sceptical about global warming, say there is no link. They attribute the recent increase to a natural multi-decade cycle.
What makes this study different is Mr Knutson, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's fluid dynamics lab in Princeton, New Jersey.

He has warned about the harmful effects of climate change and has even complained in the past about being censored by the Bush administration on past studies on the dangers of global warming.

He said his new study, based on a computer model, argued "against the notion that we've already seen a really dramatic increase in Atlantic hurricane activity resulting from greenhouse warming".

The study, published online in the journal Nature Geoscience, predicts that by the end of the century the number of hurricanes in the Atlantic will fall by 18%. The number of hurricanes making landfall in the United States and its neighbours - anywhere west of Puerto Rico - will drop by 30% because of wind factors.

The biggest storms - those with winds of more than 110mph - would only decrease in frequency by 8%. Tropical storms, those with winds between 39 and 73 mph, would decrease by 27%.

Hi Red, I agree with you. All this crap about global warming is there for one thing only, and that is to get more money out of us.

Global warming, followed by global freezing has been around for centuries, but the world didn't end because of it.

The trouble now, is that people are so stupid they believe anything, "I saw it in the paper so it must be true" The only thing that is true, is that the people who say that are f****g stupid.

p.s. I just noticed, from the pictures, we both seem to have the same colour hair, now that could be caused by global warming, what do you think?
