Hurricane Prediction Challenge

Scott Maxwell from the Orlando Sentinel thinks a monkey, his kids and a psychic can predict hurricanes as well as a meteorologist can.

NOAA’s predictions are now out.

We suppose time will tell but encourage everyone in prone areas to go ahead and get prepared.

What are your predictions for this hurricane season? Are you getting ready?

  1. Dear Editor,

    Due to a two degree drop in our annual temperatures here in the USA for the last two years;

    Due to a Due to a six degree drop in our winter temperatures here in the USA over the last 10 years;

    Due to the Iceland volcano;

    Due to the continued cooler temperatures in Europe;

    I believe, based on historical data of correlation of sunspot activity to hurricane data, that we will have 4 to 7 named storms of 50/50 mix. There will be numerous tropical depressions.

    The present professional predictions appear to be based on global warming-greenhouse gases concepts. Those are out-of-date.

    We are in a sunspot minimum.
