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.

Global Warming - Yes, but is it true??

I think it may be because most people don't understand the scientific method which Thomas Kuhn so skilfully and briefly set out in his book "The Structure of Scientific Revolutions." A scientist makes certain assumptions and then produces a theory which is only as valid as the assumptions. The theory of Global Warming assumes that CO2 is an atmospheric greenhouse gas and as it increases temperatures rise. It was then theorized that since humans were producing more CO2 than before, the temperature would inevitably rise. The theory was accepted before testing had started, and effectively became a law.

As more scientists speak out against the alarmism that has become the politics of global warming, we are seeing this house of cards fall apart. As it does so we see the most vocal proponents becoming more and more irrational - witness Dr. Heidi Cullen of The Weather Channel calling for decertification of meteorologists who don't regurgitate the party line and all the calls that the "science is settled".

If we really are on a downturn in temperature, it won;t be long before the Chicken Little's start crying about the cold.
