Worst Hurricane Season Ever?

Hurricane Wilma is the 12th hurricane this season, and the 21st named storm. The last time there were this many hurricanes in a single season was 1969. The only other season that there were this many named storms was in 1933. Reliable hurricane records stretch back to 1851, eight years before the publication of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species.

The link between the severity/frequency of hurricanes and global warming is still a hotly debated topic. My guess is that it will not be debated in 5-10 years time...
