Florida missed again
August 26, 2012 - Harry Eagar
It has now been six years since a hurricane has come ashore in Florida. The global warming panicmongers promised us we would get more and bigger storms.
They were wrong.
As a result of this lack of hurricanes, most of Florida has endured a serious drought. Florida depends on big storms for its fresh water. It has had a few tropical storms that brought significant rain, including one earlier this summer which broke a very long drought in north Florida.
From the point of view of humans living in Florida, more tropical storms would be the best solution: They would get the water without the destruction.
I see no reason to suppose that the recent dearth of hurricanes is being caused by climate change, or at least by any kind of unusual climate fluctuation. But if it is, then so far at least, climate change is good for Florida.
