Another Scare Come and Gone

Thanks to Drudge for this item. He collected on his site a few articles, here, here and here, where folks predicted a worse-than-average hurricane season. This all ties into the global warming hysteria, remember.

But unfortunately for Al Gore and his amen chorus, it just didn’t materialize. What happened in fact was a much milder hurricane season than last year, thereby putting a crimp in the theory. Had it gone the other way, you can bet it would be front-page news. Hysteria sells, after all.

Don’t you just hate it when the facts don’t jibe with a really good scare? It ought to make us a little more skeptical of every scare we hear and read about these days.
