Show me the trend were hurricanes are getting more numerous or stronger.

Your link speaks of extreme weather events in Europe an nowhere else.  What does that have to do with Florida and hurricanes?

I done. You know the Golden Rule of arguments right? For every graph, there is an equal and opposite graph. Go ahead, dig that coal, burn that oil. My new go-to phrase: "Thank god I'll soon be dead!"

Okay, you believe your graphs as the unassailable, metaphysical truth and I will continue to be skeptical about them all.

Not true.  I think that global warming is happening and I think it is caused, at least in part, by humans.  I am not convinced, however, that every effect is negative.  That just isn't likely.  The result of climate change should be a mixed bag of positives and negatives.  One of the potential positives is that increased wind shear over the Atlantic has the potential to decrease the number and intensity of hurricanes.  Would that be enough to offset the increased intensity of warmer water?  I don't know.  The point is that I don't know and I am not inclined to trust alarmists who would have me believe that any deviation from the climate of 1980 is universally negative.  That is obvious bullshit.
