MoonBat Left needs to calm down and even listen to the MSM for once

CNN reports here responsible scientists saying (for once) that global warming has nothing to do with the recent onset of monster Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.


More telling is the following excerpt:



In the September's issue of the journal Science, Peter Webster and Judith Curry documented a 60 percent global jump in major hurricanes with winds of 131 mph or more and a 1-degree increase in the tropical ocean surface temperature.

But Webster warned on Georgia Tech's Web site that more study was needed before blaming global warming.

"We need a longer data record of hurricane statistics," he said, "and we need to understand more about the role hurricanes play in regulating the heat balance and circulation in the atmosphere and oceans."

Willoughby said he is keeping an open mind about the role of global warming but believes it won't be a factor for at least another 100 years.

"The answer I give everybody, because it has all been so politicized, is I don't know," he said.

Gray was more direct. "There are all these medicine men out there who want to capitalize on general ignorance on this subject," he said.


(Italics are mine)

One can easily see the more unstable elements of the Left spouting that Bush's rejection of the Kyoto accord (let us not forget, defeated in the Senate by a vote of 99-0) claiming that the above article supports their position;global warming causes killer hurricanes.

But let's look at this quote again:
In the September's issue of the journal Science, Peter Webster and Judith Curry documented a 60 percent global jump in major hurricanes with winds of 131 mph or more and a 1-degree increase in the tropical ocean surface temperature.


The LoonLeft would have us believe that with the current rise in world temperatures CAUSE this increase in hurricane strength.

But, as I teach in psychology, all we have here is a correlation, and correlations do not prove causation. If the causation were true, how do you explain the killer hurricanes of 1915 that smacked both NO and Galveston, during a period of decided cold in North America?

Then there is this requote:
Gray was more direct. "There are all these medicine men out there who want to capitalize on general ignorance on this subject," he said.


Global warming is in fact becoming a religion for the more unstable Left. Just as all the world's ills in the ancient, pagan world were attributed to unpredictable gods, so now all our ills are blamed on the god of Global Warming.

Someone needs to alert the ACLU. We need judicial activists to act NOW and stop the spread of this nefarious religion that already has hold of many goverment institutions.
