This is interesting don\’t you think?
Researchers from the Met Office established a direct link between levels of industrial pollution and the frequency of hurricanes in the North Atlantic.
For much of the 20th century, sooty pollution in the atmosphere has made conditions unfavourable for the storms, causing their numbers to drop.
But since the 1980s, cleaner air over the Atlantic has created better conditions for hurricane formation, with more tropical storms developing and battering American and Caribbean coasts as a result.
This rather over turns the current mantra: that hurricanes are Gaia\’s rage at the carbon in the atmosphere. They\’re actually Gaia\’s coughing fit after we stop polluting said atmosphere.
So, all those who said that we must stop polluting because of the risks of more hurricanes should now be saying we should pollute more because of the risks of hurricanes, no?
