Skip to comments.A ‘head scratcher’ – No Atlantic Hurricane by August in First Time in 11 Years

Where are all the hurricanes Al Gore, Bill McKibben, Joe Romm, and Brad Johnson say are supposed to happen due to global warming?
August is about to end without an Atlantic hurricane for the first time since 2002, calling into question predictions of a more active storm season than normal.
Six tropical systems have formed in the Atlantic since the season began June 1 and none of them has grown to hurricane strength with winds of at least 74 miles (120 kilometers) per hour. Accumulated cyclone energy in the Atlantic, a measure of tropical power, is about 30 percent of where it normally would be, said Phil Klotzbach, lead author of Colorado State Universitys seasonal hurricane forecasts.
At this point, I doubt that a super-active hurricane season will happen, Klotzbach said in an e-mail yesterday.
The most active part of the Atlantic season runs from Aug. 20 to about the first week of October. The statistical peak occurs on Sept. 10, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

Algore is deeply saddened.
Aw shoot! Poor man-made globull warmists! Or is it climate changers? Or what do they call it now?
Just another significant indication that global warming is actually happening. /sarc
I’m on Florida’s east coast. We’ve had afternoon thunderstorms all summer. In the years we have afternoon storms we don’t get hurricanes. In ‘04 and ‘05 we didn’t have the afternoon storms.
Post again in November, before getting too excited. God is funny that way.
Ya don’t say?
No Gulf Hurricanes either.
Sadly this is going to extend the drought in Tx
I blame electric cars. /s
Not to worry! 0bama is about to start WWIII - the ‘Globalists’ will be able to make TONS of cash off of that, now that their Golbal Warming Cash Cow is winding down.
Although Hurricane seasons starts in June, the real hurricane season has yet to begin.
Sept seems to be the real peak here.
But it is oddly quite this year.
I want federal drought relief!!
Give it a rest, deniers. Can’t you see that Climate Change is responsible for upsetting the normal balance of our planet’s weather systems?
The only solution is to pass a global carbon tax on all that deadly CO2 you morons are expelling into our delicate atmosphere!
Proof that the planet has a fever.
After moving to Fla in Summer ‘60, we had our first taste of hurricanes and it was Hurricane Donna. No fun, as we lived on the beach and had to evacuate to higher ground, if you can call it that in Fla. It was one vicious storm. I was a precocious 12 at the time, and pretty cocky.....until it hit.
September and October are the worse months for hurricanes.
Central and South Florida are being pounded by daily rains and the ground is saturated .
If we get one this year , even a small one , it is going to be BAD because of major flooding
