'Expert' predictions on hurricanes way off

Success - Article sent! close

I wonder if anyone remembers when the "experts" (at nothing) predicted that due to the global warming of the oceans the United States would be subjected to 12 to 15 hurricanes this year, of which five or six would be catastrophic. And just how many did we have? Oh that's right -- none, nada, zilch.

So the "experts" are just guessing and they really don't have any idea if there will be any hurricanes or not. But I will now make an infallible prediction. Come next March or April the same "experts" will be at it again and the gullible, otherwise known as the media, will be pontificating and falling all over themselves as though they were waiting for the Sermon on the Mount until they hear The Word which in reality is a guess that anyone can make.
