Do the recent hurricanes have anything to do with global warming? UK environmental head Sir John Lawton says this is what global warming looks like, when it starts to affect the world we live in.
Michael McCarthy reports in the Independent that climate change isn't just a theory any more?it's become a reality and we're now paying the price for centuries of spewing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Hurricanes happen when the ocean surface gets warmer than normal?much warmer than the air above it. This is what turns an ordinary tropical storm, which is a storm on the ocean, into a hurricane. The damage starts when a hurricane blows moves onto land.
Lawton says, "If this makes the climate loonies in the States realize we've got a problem, some good will come out of a truly awful situation."
