“The number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has almost doubled in the last 30 years.”
In a convenient bit of timing, the 2006 hurricane season is ending on November 30, 2006. And what happened???
2006 is shaping up to be one of the lightest hurricane seasons in history!From wikipedia, if you look at the 2005 hurricane season in the Atlantic damages totaled an estimated $120 billion along with approximately 2300 deaths.
However, the 2006 hurricane season is one of the weakest in years, with $183 million in damages and 11 fatalities.
Won’t Al use this to “educate” people on his call for action?
On a more serious note, it is sad how little attention the media has given to the fact that there haven’t been any major hurricanes. As we know, the media swarms over bad news but ignores good news, and ignores trends that point to overall good things happening.
As they say in the media business, “if it bleeds, it leads”.
I will go back to blogging for free, trying to tell the truth as I see it…
