Houston TX-- Stunned lunar scientists announced today that a hurricane appears to have formed on the moon. The hurricane appears to be a Category 4 and could intensify further. The unnamed storm formed in the Sea of Tranquility and is heading straight for the Lunar Highlands.
Puzzled astronomers are conferring with meteorologists to solve the mystery. Scientists know the moon has no atmosphere, water or oceans, so they are a little confused. Global Warming is suspected.
"Oh, this is definitely a sign of climate change." said Al Gore. "Even a child can see this. When the Earth gets warmer, it makes hurricanes on the moon--there's the proof!" he gleefully giggled.
President Obama ordered the mandatory evacuation of the Lunar Highlands, as a precaution.
"I know we have a few states up there, I saw a map of the United States once. I don't want any Hurricane Katrinas on my watch." said the moron. "I know there's nobody living on the moon, so the evacuation should be easy." he read from his teleprompter.
Scientists are also troubled by other strange events this Summer. Meteor strikes on Jupiter, Venus and Saturn have occurred in the last four weeks. The lack of any tropical storms or hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean basin is also curious.
"It's all from Global Warming." chanted Al Gore.
