Years ago James Hanson at NCAR predicted that AGW would be observed first at the mid-lattitudes and upper atmosphere. It hasn't, but that's another story. The FAA Aviation Weather guide presents a General circulation model of the earth: Hot equatorial air rises to the poles where it cools and slides along the ground back to the equator. Add the Earth's rotation, uneven solar heating, coriolis effect, jet streams, dew point and air mass differences to get 'weather.' Of note to this discussion is that the greater the differences between air masses, the stronger the storm. Hanson's prediction relies on the opposite: that warmer polar air mixing with warmer tropical air somehow makes for a stronger storm. It defies established science.

Dear Comrade Mikey,

That’s right; there is no connection between a storm and so-called global warming. Scientists theorize that storms could be become worse and more extreme, but there is very little evidence- very little is not to be confused with no evidence- that storms are any...
