In case you still haven’t heard the news, global warming (regardless of its cause) does NOT cause an increase in hurricane activity according to the latest published study.
Knutson said Landsea ”makes a very good case,” but “I consider the science still unsettled.”
Even if the global warming doomsayers refuse to accept the study, the fact that they now admit that the science in this area is “unsettled” represents real progress in their thinking. That is certainly a change in tune from what they have been insisting over the past year.
I guess this means that we don’t have to worry about more hurricanes on Mars either.
