From MSNBC-TV:


With Hurricane Rita marking the ninth named Hurricane of the season and the number of category four and five hurricanes worldwide nearly doubling in the last 35 years, many are wondering about the reasons behind the increased storm activity.

According to Stanley Goldenberg, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, there is no specific reason.

"What people have to realize is that we're in a part of an active long-term cycle in hurricane activity. What happens in the Atlantic is that you have several decades of below normal activity, and then you have several decades of above normal activity," he said.

"This is a cycle we can trace back hundreds of years. Since 1995, we've been in this higher cycle of activity," Goldenberg said.

Goldenberg said that while a warmer Atlantic Ocean contributes to the additional hurricane activity, global warming isn't to blame.

"The main environmental factor is a change in ocean temperatures in the Atlantic. We're not talking about long term global warming, we're talking about a cycle that goes up and down -- a little bit warmer for a few decades and a little bit cooler for a few decades. That's really what we're seeing," he said.



They attach the scientific explanation, clearly stating it's a normal cycle unrelated to global warming. And the explanation is from a top NOAA meterologist. Yet 70% of respondent sheeples chose to blame the increased hurricane activity on global warming.

Retards!

This just goes to show that what's popular thought may not be correct or the best course of action. That's why it's a very good thing we are a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy.

First you cannot trust online polls.

2nd you especially cannot trust MSNBC online polls as visitors to MSNBC trend to be far more liberal than the general population.

3rd if you tell a lie enough some people start to believe… and you have the vast majority of the MSM pushing the global warming lie everyday.

Yeah, both ends of the political spectrum have their tin foil hats. On the left its SUV cause global warming and that caused the hurricanes. On the fundie right, some people say God is doing it to punish people.
