    You got it.

    The Wirmers said that hurricanes were going to become more instense and more frequent, too. How long has it been since we've had a hard hurricane season?

    I remember all the, "the sky is falling", BS we heard after Katrina. We haven't had a real storm hit the US since.

    Isn't Australia the hottest driest place on Earth, on the average? Heat waves are purdy much normal there...lol

    I love how Global Warming means something different every year.

    Winter in Northern Hemisphere = Summer in Southern Hemisphere. That's why we don't care.

    A good sized one hit Mexico in September, but that doesn't count. It didn't hit the US, and the US is the world, so that disproves global warming.

    Which one are you referring to? Hurricane Jimena? Was it a Pacific or Atlantic one?

    EDIT: If that was the one you were referring to, it was almost as powerful as Katrina while at sea, but made landfall as a Category 1 Hurricane and soon became a tropical storm afterwords.

    I don't remember the name, but I remember it hit Los Cabos a week before we arrived there. It did lose power before hitting land, but it started out as a powerful storm.

    The destructiveness and hence the notoriety of hurricanes is more dependent on where they hit land than on how powerful they actually are. One that peters out before hitting land, or hits an unpopulated area tends to go unnoticed.

    One that hits a low lying city like New Orleans tends to make headlines.

    The only one I can find is that one, but I'll keep looking, and at its most powerful had winds about 30kph slower than Katrina's, however that was when it was Cat 4, again it hit land as a Cat 1...so I don't think its power had to do with why it wasn't getting much attention. It seemed to lose steam relatively far off the coast too...

    Ok, that's one. Any others?

    I said, "the US", because 90% of all hurricanes have hit the United States. Since none have hit the US and only hit Mexico, that means that there has been a 90%+ decrease in hurricane activity since 2005.

    That decrease disproves the global warming skeer mongering.

    Katrina made headlines because of all the black folks that had to be evaced. You don't hear anything about hurricane Rita, or Ike, or Gustav.

    Ike was the third most powerful storm to ever hit the United States. He ripped galveston a new asshole, destroyed Cameron, again and hardly a word about it. The racial politics factor was missing, I reckon.
