Effects of Global Warming

Since we have been advised by the President to examine all points of view, in particular, ideas about Intelligent Design, I think we should also entertain ideas about the effects of Global Warming.I think fair is fair.

MIT Climatologist Kerry Emmanuel

In the scientific journal Nature, Kerry Emanuel, a climatologist at MIT, reported in July that there may well be a link between global warming and an increased destructive force of hurricanes. He wrote:

"I find that the record of net hurricane power dissipation is highly correlated with tropical sea surface temperature, reflecting well-documented climate signals, including multi-decadal oscillations in the North Atlantic and North Pacific, and global warming. My results suggest that future warming may lead to an upward trend in tropical cyclone destructive potential, and--taking into account an increasing coastal population--a substantial increase in hurricane-related losses in the twenty-first century."

Our leaders should follow their own advice and examine these effects in a scientific manner.
