We Can’t Account For The Missing Hurricanes, And It Is A Travesty That We Can’t

Global warming accounted for around half of the extra hurricane-fueling warmth in the waters of the tropical North Atlantic in 2005, while natural cycles were only a minor factor, according to a new analysis by Kevin Trenberth and Dennis Shea of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). The study will appear in the June 27 issue of Geophysical Research Letters, published by the American Geophysical Union.

“The global warming influence provides a new background level that increases the risk of future enhancements in hurricane activity,” Trenberth says. The research was supported by the National Science Foundation, NCAR’s primary sponsor.
The study contradicts recent claims that natural cycles are responsible for the upturn in Atlantic hurricane activity since 1995. It also adds support to the premise that hurricane seasons will become more active as global temperatures rise. Last year produced a record 28 tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic. Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma all reached Category 5 strength.

  1. There aren’t any missing hurricanes, there are only hurricanes waiting in the pipeline. You’ll see. In 15 or 20 years (±100.0 naturally) all of the pent-up hurricanes will come bursting out in a massive fireball of supersonic wind that will send every human on Earth blasting straight to Nibiru. And it’ll be all your fault, too.

    The missing hurricanes are on Saturn producing a massive storm and it is all out fault! It is all about teleconnections. The rain in Maine falls mainly in Spain or something like that.

    Look, those comments attributed to Trenberth can’t be proven. I suspect it was made up by the reporter, if not just grossly misquoted…..

      Yeah, the climategate ‘hacker’ took the time not only to download all these wonderful quotes, but to write them using various appropriate email addresses as well. BTW, what reporter?

    Yeah, but we didn’t miss any tornadoes this year, so Brian’s now a believer.

    Now that’s funny right there!
