Translation - when he says "hard to say at this point," he means he can't do an appropriate analysis himself.

Well the dirtling caused a low pressure area bringing the tropical depression in to the warm sea waters. This would explain the climate change and hurricane link.

Nice try. He [allegedly] smokes a lot.

However, new research shows that hurricanes and other tropical cyclones across the globe reach Category 3 wind speeds nearly nine hours earlier than they did 25 years ago. In the North Atlantic, the storms have shaved almost a day (20 hours) off their spin-up to Category 3.

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 shear—a change in upper-level wind speed or direction—makes 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.
