If 2006 and 2007 had been above-average hurricane years as scientists predicted, we’d be hearing a lot more about that global warming-hurricane link. But, turns out the scientists were wrong:

The 2007 hurricane season may be less severe than forecast due to cooler-than-expected water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic, private forecaster WSI Corp said on Tuesday.
The season will bring 14 named storms, of which six will become hurricanes and three will become major hurricanes, WSI said in its revised outlook. WSI had previously expected 15 named storms of which eight would become hurricanes and four would become major hurricanes.

Classic example of media framing. Highlight facts that support a certain frame; ignore those that don’t.
