AGW & hurricanes: Like tossing a log on the fire Featured

Think of hurricanes as a fire in a fireplace. Global warming isn't the spark but it is that extra log we are throwing onto that fire.



Notes:   It is expected that hurricanes will get stronger in a warmer world.  (see: Knutson, T. et al. (2010). Tropical cyclones and climate change. Nature Geoscience, (3), 157 - 163.)

I was there when Scott Mandia gave you this quote and it has stuck with me ever since. I will be using it also. Very beautiful, succinct, and easy to understand analogy. Thanks so much for posting this.
