Hurricanes and Global Warming

Another blow to the global warming crew, a new study concludes that Global Warming has nothing to do with increased hurricanes we’ve seen over the last couple of years.  This study, led by the Geological Survey of Sweden, states that the temperature increase could actually have been the reason for the low occurrences in the past 25 years. 

What we’ve been saying here all along- the common sense argument- is that we don’t have enough information to know exactly what’s happening.  The fact is, there is more evidence shows that the Earth’s temperature moves in a cyclical pattern. 

–– Five periods in the past 270 years were found to have had the same lack of hurricanes, combined with high wind shear, as 1971-94: 1730-36, 1793-99, 1827-30, 1852-66 and 1915-26

–– Six periods were identified as having the same high levels witnessed since 1995: 1756-74, 1780-85, 1801-12, 1840-50, 1873-90 and 1928-33
