@HiEv: That's true! 2005 was THE worst (for the USA at least) on record. Everyone remembers Katrina, but forget Dennis Rita, and Wilma which were also MONSTERS! It could easily have set the landfall record as well, BUT as usual many hit as Tropical Storms, which doesn`t count. iirc: 2006 had... ZERO landfalls and was one of the quietest on record, DISPITE the AGW CREW predictions of another "worst ever" season! Wiki Says: 5Cats IS Correct! "It marked the first since 2001 in which no hurricanes made landfall in the United States" So at least 2 years of Zero to counter the 6-8 in 2005? idk for sure.

It truly speaks to the narcissism of the human that they see "trends" in global climates by reviewing 30 years of data, as if only the period in which they live is relevant. That would be like saying you are going blind because you blinked. The Earth's climate is cyclical over millions of years, not decades or even centuries.
If the ice caps have always been frozen and are only melting now, why are they finding trees under the ice? Think about it.
