Warming May Reduce Hurricane Landfalls, Study Says
Contrary to many previous reports, global warming could reduce the number of hurricanes that strike the United States, according to a new study.
The work is the latest in a contentious scientific debate over how human-induced global warming might affect the intensity and frequency of hurricanes.
In the study, researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the University of Miami in Florida link warming oceans to increased vertical wind shear in the Atlantic Ocean near the United States.
Wind sheara change in upper-level wind speed or directionmakes it hard for hurricanes to form, strengthen, and stay active.
With every degree Celsius that the oceans warm, the wind shear increases by up to 10 miles (16 kilometers) an hour, said...

More cut and paste useless babble from the dirtling.One exception the dirtling admits it's hot air is changing the climate.Now with that said folks get out your tall boots the BS is heading your way.Well maybe a good thing biofule free from the dirtling.
