Tom Fletcher wrote an editorial the other day titled Harper targeted for wrong reasons.

He mentioned that he didn’t want to dwell on the “routine idiocy” of people who worry about climate change, but he does take the time to offer the fact that the “number of hurricanes that struck North America in 2013 was zero” as evidence to calm the nerves of any silly-folk who do believe in climate change.

I thought that is should be noted that this fact is only true if you assume Mexico isn’t in North America. I’m not sure if it is in South America or Europe, but Mexico was hit by multiple hurricanes (in fact the 2013 Eastern pacific Hurricane season was one of the most active on record) killing hundreds and causing over six-billion dollars in damage,
