Scientists Warn Warming Oceans Are Responsible for More Intense Hurricanes

Scientists Warn Warming Oceans , Are Responsible for More Intense Hurricanes.

'Time' reports that a recent study suggests that warming oceans will fuel more powerful and catastrophic Atlantic hurricane seasons in the future.

The study examined data from 830 tropical cyclones in the Atlantic since 1971.

.

According to the findings, over the last 20 years, 8.1% of Category 1 minor storms transformed into major hurricanes within 24 hours.

Between 1971 and 1990, that only occurred 3.2% of the time.

Study author Andra Garner, a climate scientist at Rowan University in New Jersey, says that the rate at which storms are intensifying is alarming.

We know that our strongest, most damaging storms very often do intensify very quickly at some point in their lifetimes.

We’re talking about something that’s hard to predict that certainly can lead to a more destructive storm, Andra Garner, study author and climate scientist at Rowan University in New Jersey, via 'Time'.

According to Garner, these destructive storms have , "become more common in the last 50 years.".

This has all happened over a time period when we’ve seen ocean waters get warmer, Andra Garner, study author and climate scientist at Rowan University in New Jersey, via 'Time'.

If we don't work to lower our (carbon) emissions, then that's a trend that we likely could expect to see continue to happen in the future, Andra Garner, study author and climate scientist at Rowan University in New Jersey, via 'Time'
