It’s that time of year again when weather watchers — namely NOAA — start predicting how many storms the hurricane season will produce.
It’s that time of year again when weather watchers — namely NOAA — start predicting how many storms the hurricane season will produce. There’s been a lot of talk here at Heartland’s Fourth International Conference on Climate Change about the infancy of the science and about how much is still unknown about how the complex climate system works. Well, today my friends at the National Center for Public Policy Research announced the launch of their own hurricane forecast center led by Dr. James Hansimian, whose predictive methods they expect to at least match, if not improve upon, NOAA’s forecasting track record:
The intended point from NCPPR:
The video isn’t intended to needle NOAA for its erroneous forecasts, but to make a larger point about our current understanding of climate.
“NOAA’s forecasts have been wrong not because of a lack of dedication or competence of its forecast team, but because climate science is really still its infancy,” said Amy Ridenour, president of The National Center for Public Policy Research. “We should remember this as we consider whether to adopt economically-ruinous caps on energy. If we can’t rely on 6-month forecasts, how can rely on forecasts of what rising carbon concentrations will do to our climate 25, 50 or even 100 years out?”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
