Found this on Slapstick Politics. It points to an article saying that Bush was briefed on whether there’s a connection between global warming and stronger hurricanes. The answer he got is there’s no consensus on the connection.
I wish atmospheric scientists would just stop with the “consensus” crap and just tell us whether something is a theory or if they know it’s true. Consensus doesn’t mean anything in science, in the purist sense. All it does is create an “in” crowd and an “out” crowd. This doesn’t belong in science, but it exists, unfortunately.
