Global Warming Records Faked?

Apparently, several global warming "fans" at the National Hurricane Center have been "naming" storms that aren't storms. This is an apparent ploy to inflate the number of storms and hurricanes that occur - in support of a global warming hypothesis.

"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."

"Most of the storms in question briefly had tropical storm-force winds of at least 39 mph. But their central pressure — another measure of intensity — suggested they actually remained depressions or were non-tropical systems."

39 Mph winds makes a hurricane or tropical storm? It does now - and THAT IS WHY the count has gone way up. It isn't global warming, it's the counting method that has changed.
