      Hurricane summary and an eminent rise in sea level
      by pat neuman Tuesday, Dec. 05, 2006 at 6:39 PM

      Looking back on hurricanes - and ahead to the eminent rise in sea
      level.

      Looking back at this year's season, no hurricanes hit the U.S. in
      2006. An official Update to the Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook was
      issued on 8 August 2006 which said:

      "NOAA continues to predict a high likelihood (75% chance) of an above-
      normal 2006 Atlantic hurricane season and a 20% chance of a near-
      normal season, according to a consensus of scientists at National
      Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Climate Prediction
      Center (CPC), National Hurricane Center (NHC), and Hurricane Research
      Division (HRD)." ...
      http://www.cpc.noaa.gov/products/outlooks/hurricane.shtml

      CPC, NHC and HRD are part of the National Weather Service (NWS), which
      is under NOAA.

      Although the official update by NWS said ... "according to a consensus
      of scientists" ..., the NWS has done nothing with (or downplayed) the
      reports from an international "consensus of scientists" on climate
      change.

      NWS has not tried to help the public understand climate change even
      though the NWS is the only agency in the U.S. with resources for
      effectively communicating with the media, local governments and public
      on weather, hydrology and climate.

      At this time - it is critically important that people begin preparing
      for the eminent rise in sea level.
