A new and permanent feature of mega-hurricanes?

The succession of intense and deadly tropical cyclones that have barrelled across the Atlantic in recent weeks have left many people wondering if a threshold of some sort has been crossed. Is this chain of hurricanes evidence of some significant new frontier in our changing climate?

The answer is mostly no, but with worrying undertones of yes.

The first thing to note about this season is that it shows the power of science and weather forecasting.
Every year, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (Noaa) puts out a hurricane forecast for the season that runs from 1 June to 30 November for the north Atlantic, Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico.
In August, Noaa updated its predictions, stating that there would be 14-19 named storms and of these, 5-9 would become hurricanes.

To date, we've had seven cyclones that have gained category three status or stronger. So this season is unusual but not unprecedented. The bigger picture shows that between 1981 and 2010 the average was six hurricanes per season.
What has happened this year is that a number of natural variable factors have come together and helped boost the number and power of these cyclones. In the background, climate change has loaded the dice.

Just pre-empting the usual suspects here, who I'm surprised haven't yet been parading the clearly ignorant articles on The Daily Fail, The Sun, Breitbart, and The Telegraph published earlier in the week. Too late now because I have them banged to rights.

Glad that's cleared up.

Related to two posts above. Really shows the duplicitous nature of denialism in all its glory. Such brazen shamelessness. You really have to ask if the right-wing ideologues believe they are right in this issue; then why do they have to lie, and twist, and distort, and fabricate?



And that's the shit you can't sweep under no rug.

A Giant, Mysterious Hole Has Opened Up in Antarctica
"Once the sea ice melts back, you have this huge temperature contrast between the ocean and the atmosphere," Moore explained. "It can start driving convection." Denser, colder water sinks to the bottom of the ocean, while warmer water comes to the surface, "which can keep the polynia open once it starts," he said.
