More hurricane misinformation in the letters

Buck Stoval looks at multiple Moratorium[s], October 28, 2005

I almost did not read this bit of misinformation. Who cares about more Nevada City pissing contests?
The Bush administration's moratorium on the science of global warming, describing it as an environmentalist myth, was blown out of the water last weekend as the biggest hurricane in history crashed into Florida from the 90-degree-plus waters of our S.E. oceans.
I guess it does not count that hurricane experts, including Max Mayfield who runs the National Hurricane Center, have totally discounted that global warming caused the current batch of hurricanes. The warmer water is all part of natural cycle that started in 1995 and is expected to continue for another 20 to 30 years. You can check out the graphical details here, and a more intellectual discussion here. George Bush myth, or the facts? You decide.

I guess "hurricane experts" don't include numerous scientists in the NOAA as well as numerous scientists around the globe. Anti-global warming people, often straight corporate shills, may say that they're the consensus, but they're simply not, as your paranoiac comments show.
