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.

Cold spell coming in a decade

A rather interesting take on climate change.

Earth is now at the peak of one of its passing warm spells. It started in the 17th century when there was no industrial influence on the climate to speak of and no such thing as the hothouse effect. The current warming is evidently a natural process and utterly independent of hothouse gases.

The real reasons for climate changes are uneven solar radiation, terrestrial precession (that is, axis gyration), instability of oceanic currents, regular salinity fluctuations of the Arctic Ocean surface waters, etc. There is another, principal reason—solar activity and luminosity. The greater they are the warmer is our climate.

An important point to keep in mind, the predicted upcoming ice age won't happen for another 100,000 years, yet noticeably colder weather will be here by 2012. If this theory is correct we will know within a few years and if global warming is correct we will also know in the same time frame. The global warming alarmists say we have 10 years before catastrophic global warming becomes irreversible. In half that time we may find out that all of the alarmism is nothing more than an elaborate hoax.
