NOAA State of the Climate 2009

Alaska 2009 was the 45th warmest year in the 92 year record:

and North Atlantic Hurricane Activity (ACE Index) shows no increased hurricane activity, contrary to IPCC predictions: 

"The 2009 North Atlantic hurricane season had nine named storms, three hurricanes, and two major hurricanes. This is the fewest number of hurricanes for a North Atlantic season since 1997. An average season has 11 named storms, six hurricanes, and two major hurricanes. Only two tropical storms and no hurricanes made landfall in the U.S. for the season. This is only the 13th time that no hurricanes have struck the U.S. during a hurricane season (June-November) since 1943."
