Hurricane Strength Linked To “Junk Science”.
Scientists now believe that Hurricane Ivan from last year generated the tallest and strongest wave ever recorded. The wave reached 90 feet.
Meanwhile, a new study from MIT has concluded that the strength of hurricanes in the North Atlantic and North Pacific has nearly doubled over that last 30 years. Scientists are already saying that 2005 may be one of the worst years on record for hurricanes in part because of human-induced global warming. Since June there has been 8 storms in the western Atlantic. Scientists are predicting a total of 21 major storms. Since 1887 only three years have seen more than 19 storms.
