Once again the hurricane forecast for the year as overly hyped. The North Atlantic is a third more quite as normal and the Eastern Pacific is a fully sixty percent below normal, according to Florida State University's Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies. This makes 2007 the least active year since 1977.
1989 to 1998 have been the peak years for hurricanes in the last thirty years. 2004 and 2005 were above average and this led some to declare global warming was at work and the next few years would be even worse. So far this has not been the case.
