Are hurricanes affected by Glowbull warming?

22nd February 2016

It’s now over 10 years since a Category 3 storm or higher made landfall in the US.
The longest break on record since data began being collected before 1900.
Hurricane Wilma was the last major hurricane to hit the US on 24th of October 2005.

Maybe due to Glowbull warming, who knows?


Are hurricanes affected by Glowbull warming?

Truth is, no one knows, but many are prepared to hazard guesses.

Take NOAA for example:

A. Summary Statement

Two frequently asked questions on global warming and hurricanes are the following:

  • Have humans already caused a detectable increase in Atlantic hurricane activity?
  • What changes in hurricane activity are expected for the late 21st century, given the pronounced global warming scenarios from current IPCC models?

In this review, I address these questions in the context of published research findings. I will first present the main conclusions and then follow with some background discussion of the research that leads to these conclusions. The main conclusions are:

  • It is premature to conclude that human activities–and particularly greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming–have already had a detectable impact on Atlantic hurricane activity. That said, human activities may have already caused changes that are not yet detectable due to the small magnitude of the changes or observational limitations, or are not yet properly modeled (e.g., aerosol effects).

  1. Earthling says:

    It’s the same with all extreme weather events, catastrophists make every attempt to link them to human caused climate change.

  2. Earthling says:

    The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season ended with no major hurricanes.
    It was the quietest since 1994.
    Fat Al, hang your head.

  3. Earthling says:

    Understandably, any and every extreme weather event will now be blamed on climate change.

    Why is it understandable?
    Simple, many humans need something or someone to blame when a natural event hurts their species.
    We’ve almost given up offering sacrifices to appease the gods, let’s hope carbon tax is the last.

  4. Earthling says:

    I watched part of a TV programme last night about clouds, and some scientists have discovered that hurricane activity may be getting back to normal, because it appears our dirty habits have been keeping them at bay, by seeding clouds with CO2 and other pollutants.
    The second part is on tonight, it’s a BBC 2 documentary, called What’s Wrong with Our Weather?

    By the way, John Gribbin tells us that we’re living in the peak of this interglacial and that it’s cooling from here on out.
