Here is a picture of the Gulf Coast, which thanks to global warming, may not be threatened by Katrina-like hurricanes again. This is bad news for crazed environmentalists who rely on weather-caused death and destruction to advance their harebrained theories on the evils of man's existence on Earth.
MIAMI (Reuters) - Global warming could increase a climate phenomenon known as wind shear that inhibits Atlantic hurricanes, a potentially positive result of climate change, according to new research released on Tuesday.
The study, to be published on Wednesday in Geophysical Research Letters, found that climate model simulations show a "robust increase" in wind shear in the tropical Atlantic during the 21st century from global warming.
Wind shear, a difference in wind speed or direction at different altitudes, tends to tear apart tropical cyclones, preventing nascent ones from growing and already-formed hurricanes from becoming the monster storms that cause the most damage.
The Goracle and his mindless followers now find themselves in the unenviable position of approving of global warming because it prevents death and destruction from hurricanes, or conversely, not approving of global warming because of the usual tired litany of imaginary reasons. Decisions, decisions.
