With all the hoopla the AGW alarmists are making regarding the past few North Atlantic Hurricane seasons (2012 season is now officially history) where the numbers (of detected cyclones) have been high, I give you a few charts as a big "So what?" (courtesy of Dr. R. Maue). As you can see below, we've been on a 20 year NEGATIVE trend both on intensity and numbers both globally and hemispherically. An interesting sidenote, with the southern hemisphere consisting of more ocean than the northern hemisphere, you might think more tropical cyclones occur there. Not so. The northern hemisphere has more than double the TC numbers.
