Another story that has NOTHING to do with global warming


It can't be much fun for climate deniers, first there is this pesky science that keeps tripping up their oil sponsored side of the story and then there is the whole existential angst caused when they start to consider whether their much vaunted consumer capitalism has exacerbated greed to such a new and unprecedented level that it is causing the planet (their home) to die.

Just to add more angst, here is the latest research showing that global warming is contributing to more hurricanes. Of course this has nothing to do with global warming. At all.

Hurricane boost 'due to warm sea'
A new analysis of Atlantic hurricanes says their numbers have doubled over the last century.
The study says that warmer sea surface temperatures and changes in wind patterns caused by climate change are fuelling much of the increase. Some researchers say hurricanes are cyclical and the increase is just a reflection of a natural pattern. But the authors of this study say it is not just nature - they say the frequency has risen across the century.

It sure is a strange mentality. Must be an uncomfortable existence.
