Counter intuitive

Reported by from the New York Times:
Most climate scientists respond that the ferocious storms are consistent with forecasts that a heating planet will produce more frequent and more intense weather events.
Ahem, hasn't anyone in the lamestream media noticed the increase in snow and ice occurring further south in North America of late? Yet there has been a decrease in Hurricane incidence over the last year or three?

Excuse my ignorance, which is considerable, but surely more heat would mean more storms; brownian motion, convection and all that jazz. Instead we are seeing fewer typhoons and hurricanes, which are part of the Earth's heat transferral system. Ergo the repetition of the mantra 'colder is warmer' makes no sense at all. It's completely counter intuitive. If the Earth truly did have a 'fever' as we are so often exhorted to believe, shouldn't it be sweating more?

Hi ho. Throw another true AGW believer on the fire Doris, it's getting chilly out there. Although this being an El Nino year, I'm taking advantage of the more clement weather here on Vancouver Island and working outside cutting extra logs for next. Just in case the cold weather turns right instead of left when it howls down from the Arctic next year. Like it did in 2007/8/9.

Log stoves rock.

Stop! Thief! Bring that phrase back! How could you?! (Sobs inconsolably).

Help yourself mate.
