Global Warming Today: Less Hurricanes To Hit U.S.?

Interesting, if true

Rising ocean temperatures linked to global warming could decrease the number of hurricanes hitting the United States, according to new research released on Wednesday.

The study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, challenges recent research that suggests global warming could be contributing to an increase in the frequency and the intensity of Atlantic hurricanes.

At the same time, it reaffirmed earlier views that warmer sea waters might result in atmospheric instabilities that could prevent tropical storms from forming.

Just to satisfy Silke , I will state that, just like studies that support global warming happening because of Man, take this study with a grain of salt. What is missing in so many of the pro and anti anthropogenic global warming studies/reports/essays is physical data, as well as empirical data that bears out the hypothesis. People make their conjectures, but does the evidence after the fact continue to bear fruit?

Anyhow, it doesn’t matter, because The Goracle said we are all going to die in about 9 years anyhow, and so many of the climahysterics said we are already past the tipping point, so, let’s party like it is Friday every day!

Oh, BTW, the rising ocean temperatures couldn’t have anything to do with the Sun and underwater volcanic activity, right? Na. Gotta be those SUVs and stuff. You know, all the things the climahysterics think everyone else should give up.

    Teach do you think that there is evidence of Global Warming ?
    Do you think that man could be PART of the cause ? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7139797.stm I do not know of anyone who says that global warming is 100% caused by humans. However since we have little control over either volcanic activity or solar activity perhaps we should concentrate on teh things that we can do to reduce global climate change.

  2. Yes, I do believe there is global warming, John. And, yes, I do believe Man has a small part in it. There are things that we can, and should do, particularly in the realm of keeping the ocean’s clean.

    That said, I do believe that it is mostly natural, just as has happened time and time again.

    What scientific study or data supports this assertion?

  4. Are you actually proposing that the Sun and underwater volcano’s have nothing to do with temp changes in the water? Despite 4 billion years of history?

  5. Silke says:

    Teach, I’m starting to think you don’t understand this. What I’m saying is that there has been no significant CHANGE in the Sun’s output or underwater volcanoes that would account for the CHANGE in temperature. That is the data I’m asking for. We do know there has been a significant change in the CO2 content of our atmosphere and we can tell from the different isotopes where that CO2 came from (i.e. the burning of fossil fuels). We also know that with more greenhouse gases we trap more heat.

    Forest fires have been caused by nature for millions of years but that doesn’t mean there are no man-made forest fires. You have to look at the evidence – history alone tells you nothing. I’m just asking for your evidence. What evidence do you have that the Sun’s output has changed or that underwater volcanic output has increased?
