Super Typhoon Haiyan may contain evidence of global warming, JPL scientist says
Super Typhoon Haiyan, which is slamming its way into record books with unprecedented winds and rain across the Philippines, may contain signs of global warming, Jet Propulsion Laboratory climatologist Bill Patzert said.
“The fingerprint is very small, if at all,” he said. “If the winds are 200 mph, global warming might have contributed 5 mph to that 200 mph.
Neither the winds nor the rain were anywhere close to unprecedented, and the link to global warming was refuted by the climatologist quoted in the article. How bad can journalism get?
