"Global-Warming" Hurricanes

"Global warming causes increased storminess" makes for interesting headlines. It also violates fundamental scientific truth and the lessons of history."

--- George H. Taylor, Certified Consulting Meteorologist and State Climatologist, Oregon.

With a similar view, regardless of the claims of so called "global-warming hurricanes," renowned meteorologist Dr. William Gray, in a recent interview (which can be read here) with Discover magazine, which has been out there preaching and pushing the theory of human-induced global warming, chose to dispute their views and stated:

"This human-induced global-warming thing...is grossly exaggerated... I'm not disputing there has been global warming. There was a lot of global warming in the 1930s and '40s, and then there was global cooling in the middle '40s to the early '70s. And there has been warming since the middle '70s, especially in the last 10 years. But this is natural, due to ocean circulation changes and other factors. It is not human induced."

"Nearly all of my colleagues who have been around 40 or 50 years are skeptical ...... about this global-warming thing. But no one asks us."

But why ask them? What do they know, right?

Responding to a question about the increased hurricane activity of last year and the likelihood of another active hurricane season this year, Dr. Gray responded:

"The Atlantic has had more of these storms in the least 10 years or so, but in other ocean basins, activity is slightly down. Why would that be so if this is climate change? The Atlantic is a special basin? The number of major storms in the Atlantic also went way down from the middle1960s to the middle '90s, when greenhouse gases were going up."

Serving as professor of atmospheric science and head of the Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University, he pioneered the science of hurricane forecasting more than two decades ago. He is described by the magazine's editors as one of "the world's most famous hurricane experts."
