Well this was untrue: if it's not a wilful attempt to deceive, you'll no doubt want to concede that it is untrue.

New paper finds significant decreasing trend of Australian tropical cyclones
A paper published today in Atmospheric Science Letters finds "a significant decreasing trend in [Australian tropical cyclone] numbers at the 93–98% confidence level." The paper adds to many others finding cyclone and storm activity has decreased globally with warming, despite the opposite cries of alarmists.

Damn that inconvenient science!

Er... but the science actually predicted decreasing cyclone numbers:
5.9.1 Tropical cyclones
Similar to studies for other basins, Australian region studies indicate a likely increase in the proportion of the tropical cyclones in the more intense categories, but a possible decrease in the total number of cyclones.
Since that time there has been a growing number of studies using results from medium and high resolution global climate models. The results from these studies indicate a consistent signal of fewer tropical cyclones globally in a warmer climate (Knutson et al 2006)

A good course for all deniers who lack the understanding of how climate works and mans influence on it. I guess that would cover all of them that post here:

“The basis of the course is understanding how the earth’s climate works. We spend the vast majority of the course learning about different aspects of the course and how that drives the climate, and then we talk in the last few weeks about what humans have done that have affected the climate,” Werne said.
For Werne, climate change is a “key factor that influences the lives of college students” who may be affected by limitations on food and water as a result of the crisis.
“A lot of the cities on coasts are affected by rising sea levels. It’s going to be a big issue,” Werne said.“It may become the dominant factor in the lives of students.”
He also added that without proper education, students can’t fully understand the impact of global warming.
“It’s a hideously complex thing,” Werne said.“If you don’t understand how it works at a fundamental level, you won’t know how our activities as humans affect it.”

Chaotic too, that's why long term forecasts are impossible. Wait for the science to catch up to the hype; there's never been an experimental test of climate change mitigation published in a peer reviewed journal.

Thought Police on Patrol

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to the Washington Post demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy.

The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the Left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It declares certain controversies over and visits serious consequences — from social ostracism to vocational defenestration — upon those who refuse to be silenced.

Sometimes the word comes from on high, as when the president of the United States declares the science of global warming to be “settled.” Anyone who disagrees is then branded “anti-science.” And better still, a “denier”— a brilliantly chosen calumny meant to impute to the climate skeptic the opprobrium normally reserved for the hatemongers and crackpots who deny the Holocaust....

Long a staple of academia, the totalitarian impulse is spreading. What to do? Defend the dissenters, even if — perhaps, especially if — you disagree with their policy. It is — it was?— the American way.

some views don't deserve equal time, or a debate.

We shouldn't entertain a debate that the world is flat, should we?

The science behind global warming is settled, well except for Koch Brother supported groups, with no scientific backgrounds.

I am maybe 5 miles from the Gulf of Mexico - tomorrow night it will be in the mid 30's here. Man that Global Warming sure is horrible. What an absolute scam the global warming industry has going. A complete fabrication. Excuse me - I am going to go hop in my 6.2L Powerstroke and go get something wrapped in styrofoam for lunch - it's the only way to keep it warm. Morons.

The global warming hoax is not even close to settled science - large portions of the hoax in fact have not surpassed the hypothesis stage scientific genius. The fact is that the Global Warming Industry is actually a political movement rather than scientific. This is why you will find that the overwhelming majority of those who work to promote the hoax come from the same political background. Global Warming is about politics and money - the science is manipulated in any way that serves the politics of the movement best. Authentic science most often holds agreement among many from diverse backgrounds and politics - it is easy to see how the Global Warming Hoax is NOT authentic science. The hoax promoters attacks those without "scientific" backgrounds - in fact this is their attack on anyone that doesn't share their same political agenda. Global Warming is politics - nothing more. It should be given the same skepticism provided to any political group - it can't hold up to examination.

Granted the original blog post was based on ignorance of climate science, it is still a falsehood, and leaving a falsehood uncorrected is a wilful attempt to deceive.
