Hurricane scientists speak up
- The reputable science studies agree on the correlation between fiercer hurricanes and warmer seas. Naysayers have no peer reviewed published science to back them when speaking to the media and Congress said Judith Perry, co-author of 9/16/05 paper Changes in Tropical Cyclone Number, Duration, and Intensity in a Warming Environment (Science 2005, 309, 18441846), in an interview published 10/20/05 by American Chemical Society.
These critics "like to operate outside the respected and time-honored [laughs] scientific tradition of presenting their data at conferences or putting it in the peer-reviewed literature. ... And each has his own individual reasons for doing this. They like media attention, and theyre able to get it without doing the hard work." said Judith Curry, chair of the school of earth and atmospheric sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology
Next Tuesday Curry will speak again on hurricanes at a press briefing by the American Meteorological Society on Capital Hill. She will be joined by Kerry Emanuel of the Massachussetts Institute of Technology and Kevin Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research who will also present their published findings.

"the simple choice to live with integrity can have far-reaching effects."
