I’ve already had much to say about this year’s puzzling Atlantic hurricane season. Indeed, I’ve called the year “schizophrenic.” But now, the Houston Chronicle’s crack science reporter Eric Berger has done an entire story on what the season does and doesn’t mean. I’m quoted in there several times, and I also have my reaction to the Berger piece up at the newly relaunched and revamped Daily Green.
In essence, I argue this: As we move further and further away from the dramatic 2005 hurricane season, the science actually seems to get more murky…but that’s no excuse for not protecting ourselves. We could easily have another disastrous hurricane very soon in the United States–if not this year, then perhaps as early as 2008.
