This year's North Atlantic hurricane season is forecast to be less active than usual, the US government said Wednesday.

There is a 70 percent chance of six to 11 during the span from June 1 to November 30, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration said.

Of those, three to six could strengthen into hurricanes, including one or two of category 3, 4 or 5, with winds of at least 111 (178 kph).

No. !

antigoracle the liar & obfuscator, I call him a liar openly as the evidence is clear, he has been on several threads here for years advised AGW is based on Physics yet claims its the same as a religion ie a cult. At first I considered this to be artistic biased language to make a sarcastic point but, no.

It seems antigoracle is insistent upon portraying AGW as a religion which it obviously is not, I have often asked antigoracle and other likeminded claimers to offer some Physics 'any' physics core to the issue but they ALL fail, they ALL cannot understand or appreicate radiative forcing as the primary core settled issue of Physics in the Science of climate change and increased heat !

Therefore I offer the challenge to antigoracle to offer some physics refuting radiative focring ?

Otherwise, I vote antigoracle also be banned !
