New Study: Expect Bigger Hurricanes Due to Warming

Here is a link to a new study by NOAA - the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration predicts that due to increased temperatures, we can expect BIGGER hurricanes in coming seasons. I quote:

"...recent studies that suggest the warming of the oceans in the Atlantic main development region in the 20th century is due to the increase in greenhouse gases, and in turn these warmer waters provide more fuel to the development
and intensification of hurricanes."

And this gem:

"Natural decadal variability suggests high levels of hurricane activity and U.S. landfalls for the next decade and beyond since the previous active period (1945-1970)
lasted at least 25 years."
