Climate Change May Offer Hurricane Help

Despite what you think the cause of global warming is, we can all get on board with this news about the possibility of climate change decreasing the amount of hurricanes that touch land. Of course, we won’t see this in our lifetime, but it bodes well for the next century…right?

Many scientists have blamed global warming for more intense recent hurricane seasons and for the more destructive storms that are predicted in years to come, but a new study says climate change could eventually help safeguard the U.S. Atlantic Coast from hurricanes.

Climate change might alter atmospheric conditions so that future hurricanes may be pushed away from the East Coast, according to a study published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
