Hollywood Hurricane expert Barbara Streisand warned the world of global warming when she told Dianne Sawyer, "this summer's back to back superstorms are proof positive we have entered a new period of "global warming emergency."

I mean she must be an expert. Dianne Sawyer wouldn't let anyone make such claims other wise right?

"We are in a global warming emergency state, and these storms are going to become more frequent, more intense," Streisand urgently declares.

Really, more frequent and more intense, because of global warming.

This argument has been used for years by the environmental extremists in this country. However when you actually look at the facts you will find that over the years the number of major hurricanes hitting the US Coast has had no significant change. In fact the number has actually decreased.

According to the National Hurricane Center there were 34 major hurricanes (hurricanes class 3 or higher) between 1900 - 1950 with 10 of them occurring between 1941 - 1950. There were 28 between 1950 - 2000.

Just a small fact that I am sure our Hollywood expert must have forgotten about.
