Nicely Balanced Look at Hurricane Influence

on

Here’s a short Wired piece adding some balance to an earlier Wall Street Journal article that dismisses climate change as an influencer of hurricane intensity.

The WSJ piece is also worth the read. It’s interesting to see Bill (if-I-haven’t-observed-it-with-my-own-eyes,-it’s -not-happening) Gray tie himself up in knots, predicting more hurricanes of higher intensity but denying that climate change could be a contributing factor. Gray brings an atheist’s resolute faith to the question of CO2-induced climate change. Where the most careful scientists acknowledge the possibility that global warming is whipping up fiercer hurricanes – but admit that they can’t say for sure – Gray is certain beyond the necessity for proof that climate change is NOT a factor.

It’s also interesting hearing someone who can consistently get his opinions printed in the Wall Street Journal complain that climate scientists “have the ears of the media.”
