whole lotta blowin' goin' on

Gustav, then Hannah, then Ike & Josephine coming up. A busy hurricane season. The National Hurricane Center notes accurately that this isn't unusual - there have been hurricanes stacked up before.

But Nature has a study showing that strong hurricanes are growing stronger, due to climate change. It isn't difficult to comprehend. Hurricanes grow in power from being over warm waters. Water in the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico are warmer in the late summer nowadays than it was 30 years ago. So, more firepower for the storms, hence stronger hurricanes.

Welcome to your new climate.
