The WSJ piece is also worth the read. It's interesting to see Bill (if-I-haven't-observed-it-with-my-own-eyes,-it's -not-happening) Gray tie himself up in knots, predicting more hurricanes of higher intensity but denying that climate change could be a contributing factor. Gray brings an atheist's resolute faith to the question of CO2-induced climate change. Where the most careful scientists acknowledge the possibility that global warming is whipping up fiercer hurricanes - but admit that they can't say for sure - Gray is certain beyond the necessity for proof that climate change is NOT a factor.
It's also interesting hearing someone who can consistently get his opinions printed in the Wall Street Journal complain that climate scientists “have the ears of the media.”
