I guess we're supposed to be commenting on creativity not politics but when something is so patently absurd I can't help it. Storms are caused by politicians? WTF? I really don't care about politics but I do care about science. When legitimate opinions are rejected without consideration it's called Fascism. That's not what science is about. Hurricane frequency and severity have gone down in the last few years, not up. Notice we don't say global warming anymore. It's now climate change. That's because the temperatures stopped rising in 1998. That's just a fact. Are you people independent thinkers or robots?
