New Study: More hurricanes not related to global warming

Satellite Spacecraft

A new study led by a team of scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has found that the increased number of tropical storms and hurricanes in recent years is not due to greenhouse warming-induced climate change.  The study found the “recent jump in the number of short-lived systems is likely a consequence of improvements in observational tools and analysis techniques.”  Technological improvements in satellite observations, such as those taken with NASA’s Quick Scatterometer, pictured here, have clearly enabled meteorologists to identify storms that previously would have been missed or not classified as tropical storms.  A link to the press release and the complete study can be found here:  NOAA Study
