It Must Be the Global Warming

[Update below]

To date, 2006 has been a HORRIBLE year for hurricanes. Due to Global Warming (TM), 2006 has seen one major hurricane after another devastate the coast of the SE USA, the US Gulf Coast, and large sections of the Caribbean and Latin America.

Oh, wait, that's not right. It's been a horrible year for these Hurricanes, not for storm activity. Tropical activity in the Atlantic and Caribbean has been thankfully average this year, and should trail off. (Thank you Weather Phenomenon Known as El Nino!) So, if Global Warming was the cause of the recent active seasons, is it also the cause of the current average season? (Really, it feels like a below average season, although that is purely a subjective feeling.)

Incidentally, below is one of the most beautiful website posts imaginable:

UPDATE: XWL shows up in the comments and reflexively blames the problems with the Hurricanes on the Clinton Administration. Well, just because we right-wingers reflexively blame everything on the Clinton Administration doesn't mean we're wrong!

I find it ironic that when The Revolution comes, some of the Clintonistas will be amongst the first up against the wall....

Ohmigosh, 'Pick, the vh:

Don't think you're particularly in need of my help to identify and appropriately apply the funny possibilities inherent in that one.

Glad you're, if not high, then--by golly!--dry.

Heh.

I don't want to be TOO dry. Afterall, I am not a martini. But no hurricanes is a definitive good thing.

And I believe that your VH is a complaint about over-time during night football games. But I could be wrong!

XWL said...

I blame the Clinton Administration for the problems at "The U".

OK, not the whole administration, just one person in particular.

Actually, if the Revolution comes to LA, I'LL be the first against the wall waiting in line to buy tickets.

We are talking about a Prince and the Revolution reunion tour, right?

Icepick said...

No. As far as I know there is no re-union tour in the works.

I am talking about The Great Peoples Socialist Uprising, of course. With any luck there will be guillotines! Not QUITE as much fun as a Prince concert, but almost!
