Ocean heat and La Nina combo likely mean more Atlantic hurricanes this summer

Mother Nature at work as usual.

Interestingly, there has been a decrease in hurricanes reaching land in the US.

Meteorology is still not an exact science, but it is hard to deny that global warming has the potential to cause more and worse hurricanes.

I have to wonder.....we know that there were times in the distant past that were even hotter than these days. So far, we have not discovered a way to find out about the hurricanes that happened then. It is reasonable to suspect that there were some real monsters.

Ocean heat is the cause, hurricanes are the effect. Which is worse, the cause or the effect? Obviously, the very rapid rise of the ocean temperature due to a greenhouse process is worse.

The proved increase in ocean heat is not a natural process, it is derived from human activity originated climate change. The huge increase of damage, the concentration of the disasters over time is also something that climate change has caused.
