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.

Burden of Proof??

Now that Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) has declared that laws will be passed to curb so-called greenhouse gas emissions, I thought it was a good time to publish a compilation of the statements Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) regarding the alarmism that has been perpetuated by the media regarding man-made global warming. Sen. Boxer is slated to become the chair of the US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee replacing Sen. Inhofe.

The key point in this is my puzzlement over the blind acceptance and defense of the alarmist position and whenever an opposing position is presented, the supposedly neutral (by their own standards) media always brings in someone to rebut the person presenting the opposign view regardless of that person's qualifications.

The following links are a compilation of posts from the speaches made by Senator Inhofe and the rebuttals from both CNN and the New York Times. I think the Senator make a very clear case against alarmism on climate change created by the media but the only responses are attacks and ridicule.

SENATOR INHOFE & CNN ANCHOR IN HEATED EXCHANGE OVER GLOBAL WARMING COVERAGE (US Committee on Environment and Public Works)

CNN's Miles O'Brien even invokes Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" which I think is the height of irony. The global warming alarmists love to point out the "scientific concensus" and how opposing viewpoints are absurd because scientists say... Then they quote Al Gore as an authority on the subject. So I looked up Al Gore's background one day. I was rather surprised to learn that he is a business major who spend most of his career in government. Well that certainly qualifies him as an expert in something as complex as climate change.

INHOFE RESPONDS TO CRITICAL NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL (US Committee on Environment and Public Works)

When Dr. William Gray of Colorado State states that hurricanes paaterns we are seeing the past few years are not the result of man-made global warming, the articles typically contain a rebuttal by some other "expert" parrotting the global warming hysteria yet when Dr. James Hanson trumpets his dire predictions even while presenting data that contradicts to some extent his statements, the media takes it as gospel.

Finally, we should not forget the alarmism of the 1970's Remember Global Cooling?(MSNBC/Newsweek) I can clearly remember learning in 7th grade science class how the future of the world was in jeopardy due to the impending ice age.
