You missed one. The truth its your useless babble tainted with hate covered with spam cut and paste HOT AIR!!! that is the cause of glowbull warming. Now if its global warming you are posting about that would be another subject that is beyound your realm of education. Now take your nap with another dose of your new meds.

I've read the text and it doesn't really support what it claims in the subject line. The only claim so far is that warmer atlantic waters are fueling a more intense storm. Well, it gained strength despite being in the north atlantic so I can hardly claim that is faulty.

The only 'defense' this article provides is the 'handwaving' claim that the warmer waters might be 'cyclical variations in Atlantic weather patterns'.

Nonsense, of course. The 'thermal content' of the oceans is clearly rising as they capture about 90% of the warming from AGW. Inventing mysterious and causeless (read magical) changes doesn't form a 'rebuttal'.

That said, the storm is mostly due to weather, not climate. Weather is the proximate cause (converging storm systems) and this condition has happened enough not to blame the PRIMARY condition on AGW. i.e The 'perfect storm' of 1991, Hurricane Hazel in the fifties. Etc. Rare, but not AGW and not CLAIMED to be caused by AGW.
