“when it came to Atlantic hurricanes, reality was the opposite of forecasts. Rather than an extreme season, the 2013 hurricane season was the slowest in 30 years in terms of hurricane frequency. Rather than the seven to 11 hurricanes predicted, only two storms reached hurricane status.”
As a person that lives in Fla. I find this behavior reprehensible. All it does is gets people all worked up. They are soo desperate for a scoop. Notice how lately every rain shower or snow storm now has a name? ..............What a joke.

Perfect way to phrase it... Hello New York Times...
It’s great to see someone actually looking back and comparing reality with predictions.
I hope this gets some distribution.
And don’t forget the always popular bi-annual press predictions:
1. Chocolate prices will soar because the chocolate harvest has failed.
2. Coffee prices will soar because the coffee harvest has failed.
3. Sun spot activity will massively disrupt satellite and terrestrial communications.
