Of course Gore never said that this season would be bad, though he did tie global warming to hurricane frequency. Something that influences overall activity, not one single season.

He never said he invented the internet either, but Isuppose you were all over that one too.

In a March 1999 interview with Wolf Blitzer, Gore said, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet."

If Global Warming was suppose to influence hurricane frequency, why hasnt it?

I really don't know why I bother. Do you believe in 3 minute snakes and toilet spiders on planes too?

When asked to describe what distinguished him from his challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey, Gore replied (in part):
During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.

Clearly, although Gore's phrasing was clumsy (and perhaps self-serving), he was not claiming that he "invented" the Internet (in the sense of having designed or implemented it), but that he was responsible, in an economic and legislative sense, for fostering the development that we now know as the Internet. To claim that Gore was seriously trying to take credit for the "invention" of the Internet is, frankly, just silly political posturing that arose out of a close presidential campaign.

Doesn't the blatant dishonesty ever make you sick of yourself? Did you even see "An Inconvenient Truth"?

Next you'll be attacking "Happy Feet" as liberal Global warming propaganda.

As to your question:

"Trends in human-influenced environmental changes are now evident in hurricane regions," Trenberth said. "These changes are expected to affect hurricane intensity and rainfall, but the effect on hurricane numbers remains unclear. The key scientific question is how hurricanes are changing." LiveScience

So there is valid reason to doubt the frequency argument, and indeed that is the only major objection to Gore's movie, which otherwise received high marks for the accuracy of the science itself. Interestingly, several of the scientists who reviewed the data conveyed were impressed by how well he managed to convey the evidence without the common slips that plague even the smartest scientists during a presentation.

I don't think anyone can watch An Inconvenient Truth without realizing the accuracy of what he's saying. But the sticking point is you actually have to see it.
