Hurricane Fay killed 12 people in the United States and 23 in the Caribbean, but none in Cuba. One warm year doesn't prove global warming, any more than one cold year disproves it, and one death-free hurricane event per se proves nothing (although Cuba has a long history of such success). But now Hurricane Gustav has arrived, and it has already killed 22 more people across the Caribbean. It hasn't hit Cuba yet, but when it does, it won't be surprising if again, no one there is killed. Why? Because the Cuban government, which considers the welfare of the Cuban people its business and not each individual's business, has already evacuated 20,000 people from the area about to be hit.
