    Well I'm not saying that we don't contribute to that...speed up the process perhaps. But, according to the professor, that's going to happen anyway from natural causes. But over a long period of time.

    HI Folks,

    Rita is headed in my direction -- Houston -- and the city is in a panic. There is no more gas. Cars are running out of gas on the exit routes. Stores have long been out of water. The city streets are already almost bare. 99% of all stores are closed or will be closed by 5pm today. I've been through 2 hurricanes here plus many tropical storms and this one has caused a panic I have never seen. Hope for the best.

    Bobby

    Wow...I'm sorry to hear that. I hope you get to higher ground and stay safe. I guess people have seen what Katrina did and fear seeing that happen in Houston. I hope Rita slows down. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    And I can back that up.......for last few years the gales got worse and every winter our fence gets knocked over or severly damaged.
    When I first moved to england there were gales, but never ever as bad as this.
    When did you move to England Dino? I'm thinking you won't be able to remember much before you were 7, which was 98/99? There were big storms in 1987, 1990 and 1997 in particular, but look at Brit Weather and you'll see there were still plenty of storms throughout the 20th century.
    I was nearly 8 when I moved to England, but year after year the wind gradually became more and more violent......it will probably get more violent this year aswell.

    Also in Bosnia, the weather is hotter then before, 45 Degrees celcious throughout the two hottest months. Before it very rarely got to even 40. My family has lived there for many geenrations, and my grandma says it was never, ever hot like this. Before(and while Ive still lived there) we could do with one fan. 4 years after I left it was so hot even 3 fans would make no difference. My mum had to buy her an air conditioner in the end, it got that hot.
    Thats how quickly its changed, the evidence is there, but people refuse to accept it.
    When I went back this summer it was a big shock, it was NEVER hot like that.

    One thing to remember, weather happens in cycles. Floods, temps, rainfall, El nino, and hurricanes.

    Believe it or not, El nino has a direct effect on hurricanes in the Atlantic. In years of El nino, we have very weak hurricane seasons.

    Yeh i agree this increse in hurricanes is nothing but a natural cycle. if global warming as any affect on it (at present) at all it should be very slight.
    that makes no logic

    Looking at accuweather, it's now skirting New Orleans and the track looks to be heading towards the Texas/Louisianna border. It seems it's heading further north and east to me.
