Warmer Atlantic fuels hurricanes

Breaking Earth News
Researchers say they have shown that a half-degree Celsius temperature rise in the Atlantic ocean fuelled a 40% increase in hurricanes. The team showed ocean warming is directly linked to the frequency, strength and duration of hurricanes. Hurricanes feed on warm water, leading to conventional wisdom supported by some recent research that global warming could be revving up more powerful storms. US researchers, however, last week challenged this view, saying global warming could reduce the number of hurricanes hitting the United States, with warmer waters resulting in atmospheric instabilities that prevent storms from forming.
