Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

And of course there is the silly solution

What I find funny is that one group seriously argues against a jump day on the grounds that changing the Earth's orbit is immoral.

Some believe it's risky to alter Earth's orbit, while others fear the jump will make the Gregorian calendar obsolete because of the length of Earth's new orbit.

I am surprised that they all don't recognize that the northern hemisphere has a much greater land mass and population than the southern hemisphere and if we all jump at the same time it would result in us staying on a parallel orbit on a lower plane. I would suspect that such a result would increase global warming due to the greater amount of land that would remain in constant sunlight. They really need to get the people in Europe and Asia to do the jumping for the best effect.
