Greg Holland, a division director at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, led a panel on Global Warming and it's effect on Tropical Weather activity at the American Meteorological Society's 27th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology. The overall conclusion is that Global Warming is contributing to the formation of the massively destructive storms we have seen over the past few years.
Some of the quotes from the conference:
"The hurricanes we are seeing are indeed a direct result of climate change and it's no longer something we'll see in the future, it's happening now,"
The warmer water conditions that created last year's monster storms are "increasingly due to greenhouse gases. There seems to be no other conclusion you can logically draw."
"What we're seeing right now in global climate temperature is a signature of climate change," "The large bulk of the scientific community say what we are seeing now is linked directly to greenhouse gases."
Whatever the cause, computer projections indicate the warming to date -- about one degree Fahrenheit (half a degree Celsius) in tropical water -- is "the tip of the iceberg" and the water will warm three to four times as much in the next century, said Thomas Knutson, explaining projections from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey.
Let's see what kind of lysenkoist nonsense our idiot in chief tries to throw in front of this one.
