    Climate change to blame for force of hurricanes

    According to this piece, from the Guardian today, scientists have said that climate change is to blame for the increasing frequency of the strongest hurricanes:

    The study comes in answer to critics, mostly scientists involved in hurricane prediction, of previous research. They argued that local factors such as the difference in wind direction at various altitudes (known as wind shear) would swamp any effect of warmer oceans.

    "We were criticised by the seasonal forecasters for not including the other environmental factors," said Kerry Emanuel, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
