Lawyer Sanders says new study in Nature finds that hurricanes are becoming more intense due to global warming.

The strongest hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean have become more intense due to global warming over the past 25 years, according to a new study published in the British journal Nature.  Scientists from Florida State University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison analyzed satellite data from nearly 2,000 tropical cyclones around the world from 1981 to 2006, and found that the strongest storms are getting stronger, especially over the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.  This new study is sure to add more fuel to the ongoing debate on the potential catastrophic effects of global warming or climate change.
