BRETT: Hurricane forecasts. Every year, the pointy-headed meteorologists look at their computer weather models and come up with a forecast of how many hurricanes or other tropical storms that we’re gonna have. Well, they’ve done it again with the first predictions coming from Colorado State University, followed this afternoon by the N-O-A-A, the NOAA.

For those of you in Rio Linda, that’s the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This was always in Rush’s Stack of Stuff to share with you. He lived and broadcast from Palm Beach, Florida, home to the EIB Southern Command and smack-dab in the middle of the hurricane zone.

Now, this year Colorado State has predicted “an above-average hurricane season,” but they don’t really know. Rush told us that for years and really drove the point home 10 years ago. Here’s that.

RUSH: Let’s go back to June 2nd, 2003, June 2nd, 2003. This is me on this program.

RUSH ARCHIVE: These hurricane forecast guys — who do not know what they’re talking about. I mean, there is literally, my friends, there’s no way you can know how many hurricanes you are gonna have, there’s no way you can know other than seasonal averages how many big ones, and there’s no way you can know where they’re gonna hit and all that. But yet they’ve come out with their forecast: And this is going to be the worst hurricane season in many decades.

RUSH: Every year. Every year. First it’s University of Colorado William Gray, and then NASA comes out with their forecast, and then Accuweather comes out, I mean, they all do — and you know what? They’re taken seriously. I remember one year, and this is not that long ago, one year — it was not a hurricane forecast, it was an El Nino forecast — some bunch put out a forecast that the Florida winter was going to be 20 degrees below normal.

And people from Europe and northern climates began canceling their seasonal hotel reservations because of this forecast, and the forecast was made in September, October that El Nino was gonna cause a bitterly cold south Florida winter. And it was all bogus. Well, “Two top U.S. hurricane forecasters, revered like rock stars in deep south hurricane country, are quitting the practice because it doesn’t work.

“William Gray and Phil Klotzbach say a look back at their own work, shows that the past 20 years of forecasts had no value. The two scientists from Colorado State University will still discuss, they are still going to discuss different probabilities as hurricane seasons approach — says here it’s a much more cautious approach. But the shift signals how far humans are, even with supercomputers, from truly knowing what our weather will do next.”

Forecasts had no value.

Now, I first saw this reported in the Ottawa Citizen in Canada. These two scientists, William Gray and Phil Klotzbach, released this statement. So far, not one United States mainstream news outlet has bothered to pick up the story. Apparently, the public doesn’t have the need or the right to know about such things.

Folks, do you know how many people went out and bought insurance policies based on these forecasts? Do you know how much money was spent to protect from upcoming hurricanes or to prepare for, or to insure against or what….. And, by the way, I like Bill Gray. I don’t want to be misunderstand here, I think this takes guts to do this.

I would expect next somebody in the global warming community is going to say the same thing, that their research over the last 20 years has shown that it has no value, that it is worthless, that we don’t know what we’re talking about. Bill Gray, to his credit, has constantly said, “Global warming has nothing to do with hurricanes.

“It has nothing to do with their formation, it has nothing to do with their intensity, it has nothing to do with their volume, it has nothing to do with anything.” But now 20 years, 20 years, they went back and looked 20 years of forecasting has been found to have zilch value.

Bill Gray at the University of Colorado, basically throwing in the towel. This is a major, major thing. It still hasn’t shown up in the American media, and there’s a reason obviously it hasn’t shown up. It might undercut the popular idea that computer models can predict the weather decades from now.

The whole global warming hoax is based on computer models and fraudulently faked data like tree cores, ice cores, whatever else they make up — and what Bill Gray has basically said is we’ve gone back and we’ve examined our work for the last two decades, the last 20 years, and it’s of no value. Our computers were worthless in predicting any aspect of hurricane activity year to year.
