In the three weeks between them, five other named storms had lived and died in the warm atlantic waters without making the same headlines their ferocious sisters did. With more than two months left in the official hurricane season, only Stan, Tammy, Vince and Wilma are still available on the National Hurricane Center’s annual list of 21 storm names. If the next few weeks go like the past few, those names will be used up too and the storms that follow will be identified simply by Greek letters. Never in the 52 years of naming storms has there been a Hurricane Alpha.  If2005 goes down as the worst hurricane season on record in the North Atlantic, it will join 2004 as one of the most violent ever. (...) The question is : Is global warming to blame ? Foryears, environmentalists have warned that one of the first and most reliable signs of a climatological crash would be an upsurge in the most violent hurricanes, the kind that thrive in a suddenly warmer world. Scientists are quick to point out that changes in the weather and climate change are two different things. But now after watching two Gulf Coast hurricanes reach Category 5 in the space of four weeks, even skeptical scientists are starting to wonder whether something serious might be going on.  “Thereis no doubt that climate is changing and humans are partly responsible” says Kevin Trenberg, head of the climate analysis section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder Colorado.  (TimeMagazine.

JAKARTA’S FLU SCARE Indonesia has long been luckier than its neighbours in dealing withbird flu * : until recently, it had avoided the humancases which have cropped up in Thailand and Vietnam. Indonesia’s luck, however, may have run out. In the last two weeks scientists have confirmed two recent human bird flu deaths, and by the end of last week, more than 20 people around the country, includinga number of children, were treatedas suspected cases. The World Health Organization has said there is no evidence yet of sustained human to human transmission, but Indonesians are increasingly worried and Jakarta’s confused response to the crisis has done little to ease fears. On Sept.19, after a zoo in the capital reported an outbreak among its birds, the government declared avian flu an “extraordinary event”- but officials later admitted they weren’t sure what the designation meant. Two days later, as more suspected human cases appeared in and around Jakarta, Health Minister Siti Fadillah Supari caused a minor panic by telling reporters that the city was experiencing a bird flu epidemic; she later retracted the comment. “The government effort is not at all coordinated” says Anton Supit, chairman of the Indonesian Poultry Breeders Association, who complains that officials haven’t told chicken farmers how to protect their flocks. (....) But while the government insists it’s doing all it can to control the disease, some are taking preparations into their own hands. One Australian bank has drawn up contingency plans for an outbreak and is stocking up on the antiviral drug Tamiflu. * bird flu : grippe aviaire (Time Magazine October 5 th 2005)
