Rush to name storms may be costing you money | Chron.com – Houston Chronicle
With another hurricane season set to end this Friday, a controversy is brewing over decisions of the National Hurricane Center to designate several borderline systems as tropical storms.
Some meteorologists, including former hurricane center director Neil Frank, say as many as six of this year’s 14 named tropical systems might have failed in earlier decades to earn “named storm” status.
“They seem to be naming storms a lot more than they used to,” said Frank, who directed the hurricane center from 1974 to 1987 and is now chief meteorologist for KHOU-TV. “This year, I would put at least four storms in a very questionable category, and maybe even six.”
Looks like the National Hurricane Center has figured out how to support their Global Warming contention that Global Warming is generating more storms. It’s simple, just lower the standards for calling something a tropical storm! Then you can say, “see, the data supports the Global Warming predictions.”
