Study finds strong warming tie to hurricanes
Half of Atlantic temperature increase in 2005 linked to global rise

But then why is the Atlantic measurably cooler this year?

In 2006, temperatures in the Atlantic were slightly* warmer than average, particularly in the Caribbean, but strong southwest trade winds stirred the Gulf of Mexico, keeping the surface waters cool, said Adamec. In 2005, by contrast, the entire hurricane-prone section of the Atlantic was much warmer* than average. In fact, at the opening of the 2006 hurricane season, sea surface temperatures were 2 degrees cooler* than they had been at opening of the 2005 season, said Adamec. The warm temperatures in 2005 allowed a record seven storms to form by the end of July, one of which, Hurricane Emily, set records when it became the first category 5 hurricane to occur in July. All other Atlantic storms of that strength have developed later in the season.

So, what…?

Maybe less fat polar bears heating things up?
