Despite Goracle's Prophesies, Tropical Storm Activity Lowest in a Generation

According to moonbat scripture, hurricanes will become more frequent and ferocious until they wash us away as punishment for causing global warming. Katrina was just a preview of the horrors to come. Banning fossil fuels and shivering in the dark would appear to be a prudent course of action in light of the hysterical predictions bellowed by Al Gore and his sycophants in the media.

But now this, from the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies:

Unless a dramatic and perhaps historical flurry of activity occurs in the next 9 weeks, 2007 will rank as a historically inactive TC [tropical cyclone] year for the Northern Hemisphere as a whole. During the past 30 years, only 1977, 1981, and 1983 have had less activity to date (January–TODAY, Accumulated Cyclone Energy).[…]
2007 lowest September activity on record since 1977
2006 and 2007 lowest October activity on record since 1976 and 1977

As you'll recall, back in 1976–1977, it was global cooling we were supposed to worry about.

Even normal tropical storm activity would have been spun by the media into an impending apocalypse. Yet there's been virtually no activity at all.

But the polar bears really are drowning, right?

Louder, Al. We can still hear the wind not blowing.

The only polar bears drowning are the ones in cartoons made to scare the bejeezus out of kids.

Van, great picture! I can just hear the roar of his fire breath!

You would think this would cause the public and politicians due caution to radically change our lives, be regulated and taxed in the name of global warming?

The "Wheather Channel" back-peddled yesterday and said that the tempature has been "steadily rising over the past one hundred and fifty years" in order to counter the anti-warming data.
Except that the records (Including their own) show wide variations in summers and winters over that same period, not increasingly warmer seasons.

After Katrina, everyone on the Left panicked over the 2006 hurricane season. They practically said that a category 5 would hit us every week!
And now, it's two years later.... nothing.
I am not claiming we're never going to have a hurricane again, but just maybe the earth is desperately trying to tell us that Algore and his ilk are off their freaking rockers?!

As someone who lives in Southwest Florida, hurricane season (The period from about August through October) has long been a very scary time for my family and I. From where we lived, we were hit by the edges of Charley in 2004, and Wilma in 2005, which both did some really bad damage to our neck of the woods. In 2006, however, we didn't have a single hurricane hit us, and this year, the closest thing is maybe the current tropical storm developing. And here I thought the Goracle promised us that our evil contribution to global warming would lead to more and more hurricanes of increasing strength?
