''What we found was total (hurricane) energy had almost doubled in the last 30 years''

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher Kerry Emanuel provides a perfect example of why climate change deniers can still argue that there is scientific doubt about global warming. As reported in the Cape Cod Times Oct. 30, 2005, Emanuel tiptoes around the link between climate change and the unprecedented 23 “named” storms in this year's hurrican season, he does point – politely – in that direction. It's typical of the integrity – the absolute insistence on total scientific certainty – among those who agree that climate change is a concern. It also stands in contrast to the loose use of fact  that is epidemic in the other camp.
