Search Falling Awake
Just Darts Since 2009
You read it here first! I wrote my little post on the absence of hurricanes this season on November 22, 2006. The rest of the world is now catching up.
First, read this prediction from the “AccuWeather” forecast people from last year. Among its predictions for 2006:
Okay, this was the conventional wisdom last year. I remembered, and waited. Then I posted on 11/22. Drudge must have read my blog:

That was dated the 29th. My favorite psychiatrist, Dr. Sanity, posted this on the 28th:
Jesse Jackson, noted climate expert, said while surveying the damage of Katrina in New Orleans last year: “Global warming is no longer academic, global warming is real.”
Al Gore, former vice president and current environmental policy pimp has gravely warned Americans that, ” We are altering the balance of energy between our planet and the rest of the universe.”
Whoh! Did you realize that the future of the galaxy–of the universe!–was at stake here?
She has a good post on the matter, and you should read it. But I had it first.
Why? Because I know these eco-disaster types. I know what drives them, and–surprise!–it’s not (just) money.
I’ll be talking about them later. My next post on the subject of global warming will be a round-up of what we know about what’s happening now. No estimates, no climate models run on computers. How has our climate been changing in the past 100 years?
