What changes is the climate having on hurricanes? As they investigated the possibility of stronger and more frequent storms for the East and Gulf Coasts of the United States as a result of climate change, a team of academics aimed to provide an answer to this question. The researchers say this could come from wind alterations in the Earth’s upper atmosphere from rising sea temperatures in the eastern Pacific Ocean, and they say this could result in tripling the number of hurricanes making landfall in the future.“What we found is that these wind changes have a double whammy effect,” said Dr. Karthik Balaguru, who is a climate and data scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
