Hurricanes: A perfect storm of chance and climate change? - BBC News
Those who have been sceptical of the impact of carbon emissions from human sources on the climate have crowed about the fact that it has been 12 years since a hurricane rated category three or above has made landfall in the US.
But those working in the field believe that measuring the connection between hurricanes and climate change based on the number that make land is hugely mistaken. [...] Rising temperatures lead to warmer air holding more moisture, which causes more intense downpours in a hurricane. The oceans have risen thanks to thermal expansion and glacier melt and this works to increase the dangers posed by storm surges.
