This could be true because of the methane levels.

Ominous" Pre-Katrina Conditions Now in Atlantic
Current warm waters, calm winds resemble those preceding worst hurricane season.
National Geographic News
Published June 11, 2010
It's already been forecast to be "extremely active," but the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season may be shaping up to be something even worse: a replay of 2005, the most active and destructive Atlantic basin hurricane season in history.
The warm ocean temperatures and weak winds recorded this past May were similar to those of May 2005—the year that spawned Hurricane Katrina.
Such patterns are "definitely ominous and foreboding," said Chris Hebert, lead hurricane forecaster for the private forecasting company ImpactWeather, based in Houston.
For instance, the similarities to 2005 means there's an increased risk of hurricane impact across the northern Caribbean islands, the Florida Peninsula, and the northeast Gulf Coast, from southeastern Louisiana to Florida, he said.
For example, between 1986 and 1996 (incl), a period of 11 years, there were "just" 15 earthquakes listed by USGS of magnitude 7.0 or greater.

With Climate Change Comes Floods

But even as it's happening right in front of everyone's face, a number of people would apparently once again prefer to write off "alarmist" science and instead focus on much more sensible explanations, like HAARP or Nibiru...
