Study Shows Poleward Shift In Tropical Storm Peak Intensity
2014-05-15 11:46:07

A new report has found that the latitude at which tropical storms reach their peak intensity is moving toward the poles – suggesting the term ‘tropical storm’ is slowly becoming somewhat of misnomer.

A distinguished federal scientist has shifted his position regarding the recent increase in hurricanes in the Atlantic ocean, concluding global warming is not the underlying cause. In fact, he believes the warmer temperatures will actually lessen the number of Atlantic hurricanes as well as those making landfall.

The debate over whether global warming affects hurricanes may be running into some unexpected turbulence. Many researchers believe warming is causing the storms to get stronger, while others aren't so sure.

Most of the increase in ocean temperature that feeds more intense hurricanes is a result of human-induced global warming, says a study that one researcher says "closes the loop" between climate change and powerful storms like Katrina.

By Timothy Gardner NEW YORK (Reuters) - Some 250,000 evacuees from last year's Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast may never return permanently and should be considered "climate refugees," whose ranks around the world could grow until global warming is mitigated, an environmental expert said.

MIAMI (Reuters) - Officials tracking the approach of the peak hurricane season told President Bush on Monday that data linking a series of devastating storms to global warming was inconclusive.
