This year we have had 30-40 degree swings during days, torrential downpours (we don't get small storms, we get knocking down buildings storms) and tornados. It's strange. We also are quickly losing Fall and Spring, it's becoming this long cold winter that goes directly to hot weather and vice versa.

And i live in Brooklyn, so this is all a bit strange.

Increased global temperatures means increased temperature of major bodies of water. Increased Oceanic temperature leads to larger, more violent storms.


One of the major issues humans will face in the near future is the "super storm". Just imagine a Hurricane like Katrina (or bigger) hitting the U.S. coast every year.

You know they keep predicting that we'll have multiple Katrinas hit the U.S. every year yet we haven't had one since Katrina.

Every year storms will increase in strength across the globe, so eventually they will be right. I shouldn't say every year, because there are actually fluctuations in global temperature up and down from year to year, but the mean temperature is rising. You have to understand we are dealing with Earth time (millions of years), which means that a year may as well be a second. The odds that we actually get to see any type of global catastrophe directly linked to global warming in our short lifetime is slim. The most likely would obviously be a super storm that wipes out an entire state/country/province/etc.

How does this make sense? People have NO IDEA what's going to happen in the future with regards to the environment and environmental disasters. Everyone always thinks they're right, but history has shown us that most of the time we are wrong with our predictions and theories.

That would uber duper suck. Even worse than mega |i-LL| baby doo-doo squirts. Perhaps mother earth will play a trick on us and have it spur up in the north Atlantic take out London, Paris or Rome. If that doesn't work, FL will do. Too many old folks driving around anyway. Just make sure it doesn't hit my precious Greenland. Leave the eskimos out of this!

It's deplorable.

Watts Up With That?

Nope.

That isn't true at all. We can measure the temperature of the Oceans... and we know that warmer Oceanic waters produce more severe storms.

So you can say there will be worse storms, but won't be able to tell us how much worse they'll be, if they'll happen ten years from now or 500, and won't be able to tell us where they will happen. Great
