This article discusses the denial by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that the intensity and frequency of hurricanes in 2005 was caused by global warming due to greenhouse gasses. The author notes that many climatologists, including some who work for NOAA, think that there is a link between climate change and hurricanes and that NOAA is attempting to suppress information and debate on the subject.
