Hurricane Forecast for 2007 (No Global Warming Influence)

Here's the latest hurricane forecast. Don't panic and go rushing to sell your beachfront property just yet. Apparently this scientist is highly respected around the world. What puzzles me is that he does not believe global warming is man-induced, and thus neither are hurricanes affected by man's activities. (See my previous post for an interview with Dr. William Gray where he explains his position.)
I hope everyone sends a copy of this to the Supreme Court and members of Congress. Do they listen to real scientists or do the get all their information from Al Gore and the "documentary "An Inconvenient Truth"?

2007 expected to bring 17 named stormsApril 3: Hurricane expert predicts 'very active' 2007 Atlantic storm season. NBC's Weatherplus.com's Gary Archibald reports.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - The 2007 Atlantic hurricane season should be “very active,” with 17 named storms, a top storms forecaster said Tuesday.
Those named storms are expected to include five intense or major hurricanes, according to forecaster William Gray’s team at Colorado State University. Gray said there is a 74 percent probability of a major hurricane hitting the U.S. coast.
The team’s forecasts are based global oceanic and atmospheric conditions.
Last year, Gray's forecast -- as well as government forecasts -- was higher than what the Atlantic hurricane season produced. Gray's team said the reason was a late El Nino that altered oceanic conditions.
