#1 Massive African Dust Storm Cooling Atlantic Hurricane Odds for Early August08-01-2013, 01:13 PMMassive African Dust Storm Cooling Atlantic Hurricane Odds for Early August
Posted by: Dr. Jeff Masters, 3:10 PM GMT on July 31, 2013
A massive dust storm that formed over the Sahara Desert early this week has now pushed out over the tropical Atlantic, and will sharply reduce the odds of tropical storm formation during the first week of August. The dust is accompanied by a large amount of dry air, which is making the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) much drier than usual this week. June and July are the peak months for dust storms in the Southwest Sahara, and this week's dust storm is a typical one for this time of year. Due in large part to all the dry and dusty air predicted to dominate the tropical Atlantic over the next seven days, none of the reliable computer models is predicting Atlantic tropical cyclone formation during the first week of August.
Damn!!! No "Super-Storms"??? AlGore must be pissed!!May the FORCE be with you!

Don't worry. Harry Reid was able to blame wild fires from lightning on climate change.

Obama has saved us from hurricanes, he was just in Africa and arranged this, bow before Obama!
The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

The Review-Journal, though, reported that National Interagency Fire Center stats show the actual number of wildfires has been on the decline -- from 40,736 wildfires this time in 2011 to 25,370 in July 2013.
Regardless of the cause, Reid says he wants more funding for the Forest Service to clear away brush that fuels these fires.
"This is really a devastating fire," he said on the Senate floor last week. He said the summer heat, dry conditions and wind are working against firefighters.
Every time this guy opens his mouth it's lies or stupidity. To think it used to mean something to be a United States Senator.Be Not Afraid.
