Private weather forecaster WSI said on Tuesday that they expect the 2007 hurricane season to be a bit milder than originally expected. Isn’t that something? I’m shocked! Amazingly, since Bush took office, global warming, according to the great climatologist with a degree in political science and who barely graduated college, Al Gore, and all his lackeys, say there will be, and has been, an increase in hurricane activity. Especially since hurricane Katrina, which certainly was a born of a conspiracy involving Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and George Bush? But there’s one annoying little problem. There hasn’t been an increase in hurricane activity, despite the hopes and prayers of the former Vice President and current sore loser.

Now, slightly into hurricane season, due to little, if any, reportable named storm activity in the Atlantic, the forecast, just like last year, must be downgraded.

It’s painfully apparent that the forecasters in Gore’s camp will predict a more severe than usual hurricane season every year until the dire warning comes true. No need to explain the normality of the weather, just go crazy over the one hurricane season worth noting, when and if it happens.

This, like so much other bull that comes out of the global warming…err, climate change alarmists is reckless. Chief in the complicity of anyone who needs funding and is afraid of Gore’s reputation sliming machine…a’ la The Weather Channel, or as I prefer to call it, the Global Warming Channel, etc.

When Gore pushed his Oscar winning film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” on the unsuspecting and gullible public, no one, it seems, had the gumption to challenge the junk science put forth.

Challenges to wit; the planet is not warming; only the northern hemisphere is. The southern hemisphere apparently didn’t get the memo. There are many hypothetical reasons for this truth, but they can be addressed in another edition. Also, a precursor to the most recent spike in average global temperatures was the collapse of the Soviet Union between 1988 and 1991. During said collapse, Siberian climate and temperature reading stations were abandoned or put out of commission. Siberia being above the Arctic Circle, the “average” global temp should go up by any moron’s math. Will anyone take this information into consideration while, before or after they view “An Inconvenient Truth?”

Oh well, like I said, this can, and will be, revisited in the near future.

If you’re looking for anything revolutionary to come out of Monday night’s CNN / YouTube debate, forget about it. Outwardly teased as a debate featuring questions from the YouTube nation, it will, no doubt, strictly be a CNN / Democrat love fest. And here’s why.

Anderson Cooper, one of CNN’s resident Democrat partisans, will “moderate” the debate. John Roberts of CNN’s weeklong “CNN/YouTube Debate Preview” said (55 minutes into the show) that CNN will be choosing which questions will make it to the Contestants. That’s right, CNN, not YouTubers.

CNN Senior Vice President and Washington Bureau Chief, David Bohrman, told Los Angeles Times’ Paul Brownfield that “We will make responsible editorial decisions about what will air during the debate.” Anyone with half an honest mind knows what that means. This is a CNN love-fest…er, debate.

Another reason this won’t be a debate more open than any other is the cozy relationships between news organizations and campaigns. CNN wouldn’t jeopardize its access to a major candidate’s campaign by letting some crazed ordinary American ask an honest, probing question. Oh my God, the implications of such a thing! The real public having fair access to a presidential candidates’ debate?! Think again.

LA Times’ Brownfield said “Monday night’s debate promises at least to expose a clash of cultures, as the grungy, youth-oriented YouTube meets the buttoned-down campaign talking point.” Don’t count on it, except possibly in the initial naivety of the questioners. But CNN will sift through the questions to find enough intelligent, yet predictable, questions about universal healthcare, Darfur, Iraq, big oil, corporate profits and all the other “hot points” of the politically and generally uneducated.

One more thing you can take to the bank; the Democratic candidates will be sucking up to the misspent youths of this country big time. Will they succeed? They will barely have to try. But as much as they like to change their stores and contradict themselves, look to some candidates, maybe most, to trip over their own condescension.
