Re:Another coincidence? First South Atlantic Hurricane on record hits Brazil

Exactly?! Yeah right.

Friday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said the first hurricane ever in the South Atlantic was forming off the coast of Brazil, classifying it as a Category 1 hurricane -- the least powerful on forecasters' five-level scale, with winds between 74 and 95 mph.

Brazil's state weather service said that the eye of a hurricane is hotter than its edges, while the center of the weather system that formed above colder waters in South Atlantic was cold, which meant it was an extratropical cyclone.


Hardly sounds like the experts even agree that this was a hurricane. A little early to sound the "sky is falling" alarm.

Hi, Evie.

The Brazilian experts apear to have the same view about the hurricane that Bush et al. have on gloabal warming -- they're denying reality. In this case, their argument is basically "we don't get hurricanes here." Well, they do now!

This search produces about 13,400 results.

Relevancy falls off quick though. Of the first 10 links produced by that search only one was relevant and it merely asked if the Brazil Hurricane might be caused by global warming. It didn't say "is" or "could be" or that it fits any models.

The remaining 9 coincidentally had Brazil or hurricane or "global warming" on the page but not in the context of the current hurricane or any discussion of it.

news.google.com is usually pretty good about finding relevant news stories if they exist but it turns up nothing. Just for the fun of it though test Dave's claim in the broader Google search engine for "global warming models predict hurricanes" and it comes up blank as well. I also search on just "global warming models" and still didn't find any that backed up Dave's claim. I'd wager that he can't either.

if the process that makes a hurricane can also run in reverse? Aren't most hurricanes and cyclones in the northern hemisphere anyway? Maybe we are now seeing how they work in the southern one and since water swirls backward down a drain there, once might be able to assume similar action might occur in hurricanes and the process be reversed.

Hi, Clay.

Hate to say it's come down to this, but given the censorship of EPA (and earlier NOAA) reports to agree more with the Administration line, doesn't the ".gov" give you pause as to the report's even-handedness. Now I know how y'all felt during Clinton -- except he let science speak for itself, unlike Bush.

This report referring to the eye's temperature isn't from .gov though. It's from the Falklands and claims the Hurricane Center of Miami got it wrong when they classified the storm as a hurricane because of the eye's temperature.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
