If "Isaac" Should Turn Into a Hurricane...

...someone will inevitably blame it on global warming. Before that happens, I'd like to post a fact from USA Today:

 Six years, nine months and 30 days have passed since Hurricane Wilma came ashore with 125-mph winds near Naples, Fla. — the longest period the nation has gone without a hit from a major hurricane since the government began keeping records in 1851.

This record-long period without a major hurricane is in stark contrast to the dire predictions made in the wake of Katrina. The world has always had hurricanes and it always will.
