    With all the hurricanes that Florida got hit with this year who thinks it may be linked to global warming?

    I was suspicious of that myself. Not to mention, we've had the wettest October in decades in California.

    You've gotta think nature is a powerful force, seeing as everything that has happened in the universe since the dawn of time.

    How can a few humans throw it all off keel? We will probably get an ass kicking from nature soon.

    I think it was more proof of the existence of God, and that he is pissed off at Jeb Bush. I'm just kidding, of course.

    I think it's very strange that four hurricanes have come up within two months. It's starting to feel like that movie, The Day After Tomorrow.

    Is that thing for real Chovy? Damn, that's just about scientific proof that God is mad at the Bush supporters.

    The tomato crops were really damaged by the hurricanes, causing a shortage, so at Jack in the Box, they don't give me tomatoes anymore. Yay!

    As far as I understood this year's hurricanes season didn't have more hurricanes than other years. They just happened to hit land more often. Seems to me to be just a case of bad luck.

    Yeah, that makes sense. Its like tornados. They don't always hit houses, just pure chance.

    i agree with 2112 on the whole "Day After Tomorrow" thing. I mean Southern Indiana has been hit with an emense amount of rain and the hurricanes in Florida and now California is having tornadoes and water spouts. In my 17 years alive i have never heard of tornadoes in California.

    We had a tornado warning here in Phoenix a few weeks ago. Kind of crazy.

    Actually I think it's because of El Nino. Undoubtedly thing's will calm down and return to normal in due course. Now, El Nino could be caused by Global Warming.

    My big problem with Global Warming is there is no way we can test such a thing. You would need to go back millions of years, if not billions to have a real model to use and compare too. Were using a 100 year model I think. That's nothing when you're talking about the global climate.

    Also, I live in Oklahoma City and during the strong El Nino year's we've been blasted by tornadoes. This spring, NOT ONE in our area, and very few in our state. It just keeps changing. It's like the weather! :P

    What about the recent bleaching of coral in the Mediterranean (around Greece I think)? That disaster seems much more likely a global warming related disaster than the hurricanes.

    We can go back a long time and study ice cores. These show that the world did indeed experience sudden warming (and cooling) trends, which were at least partially related to CO2 levels.

    I think the increased hurricanes were the result of global warming. Hurricanes feed on the heat of the ocean. If the gulf stream slows due to changing flow patterns related to salinity, then there's more heat around for hurricanes to use.
