Hurricane Season is Now Closed
November 30th, 2005 11:13 pm

Two things jumped out at me in this article about the 2005 Hurricane season:

Forecasters say the Earth is at the crest of a regular cycle - that hurricane seasons go up and down in severity over a period that lasts for decades.

“We are 10 years into a cycle, but I can’t tell you it’s going to last 10 years or 30 years,” Lautenbacher said.

During this part of the cycle, the ocean surface is two to three degrees above normal. More steam rises into the air, and warm winds from Africa blow storms right at the United States.

Yep, that’s right… it’s not some vast weather conspiracy formed from the failure to ratify Kyoto. It’s just a weather cycle that has happened again and again throughout history.

What should you do? The National Hurricane Center says use the off-season to get ready. People should know where to evacuate and stock up on flashlights and bottled water.

Perhaps most important, they say, do not count on the government to bail you out.

Damn, first they take away the ability to exploit the season for purposes of supporting Kyoto, now they’re telling us not to sit around in the face of deadly storms and wait for the gubmint to come rescue us…

The sky is falling, the sky is falling…
