2013-hurricane-forecast      Politicians celebrate that refurbished Jersey Shore is ‘almost’ complete.  But they should acknowledge weather scientists predictions that this year’s Hurricane season will be even more active than the one that produced last year’s Sandy.

AFP News claims The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicted “the six-month Atlantic hurricane season beginning June 1 will see 13 to 20 named storms, seven to 11 hurricanes and three to six major hurricanes, with winds of at least 111 miles (178 kilometers) per hour.”

Gerry Bell, Lead Hurricane Forecaster in NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center announced, “This year, oceanic and atmospheric conditions in the Atlantic basin are expected to produce more and stronger hurricanes.  These conditions include weaker wind shear, warmer Atlantic waters and conducive winds patterns coming from Africa.”

NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan adds:  “As we saw first hand with Sandy, it’s important to remember that tropical storm and hurricane impacts are not limited to the coastline. Strong winds, torrential rain, flooding and tornadoes often threaten inland areas far from where the storm first makes landfall.”

Environment News Service (ENS) adds “. . . a 70 percent likelihood [is] 13 to 20 named storms with winds of 39 mph or higher.  Three to six are forecast to become major hurricanes of Category 3, 4 or 5 with winds of 111 mph or higher.”

Americans should remember that Hurricane Katrina was a Category 3 storm when it hit New Orleans in 2005.  Yellow cabs line a flood street in Queens, New York in hurricane Sandy's wakeKatrina flooded 80 percent of the city.  And New Orleans citizens and public officials still argue over the actual number it killed.

ENS explains that three climate factors controlling Atlantic hurricane activity will come together to produce the strong hurricane season predicted:  1) The atmospheric climate pattern presently hovering overhead; 2) That pattern includes a strong West African monsoon that have been stirring Atlantic Ocean hurricanes since 1995; and 3) The continuing “warmer-than average water temperatures” in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.”

Again, weather prognosticators and politicians avoid using the term Global Warming.  It continues to produce such wicked weather, and people and their governments must face it, and start fighting against it.

The nation doesn’t need more broken hearts in Jersey, New Orleans, or anywhere else.  Moreover, no country can afford to keep rebuilding what Global Warming keeps tearing down.  The past cannot be rebuilt, but the future can be saved if we fight against its destruction, and trust God to save us from disaster.

As wholesale Christian t-shirts advise: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3: 5 – 6).”
