Re: Hurricanes Are Necessary

But --- Are we making things worse by warming the planet -- lot's of great debate out there about global warming.

There are definite cycles to hurricane activity and it is obvious to all we are in a cycle of intense activity that may subside over the coming years. Still there is recent evidence that the percentage of intense storms in the Atlantic & W.Pacific basins is increasing -- Is this a manifestation of global warming??
