The study was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), written by top climate researcher Kerry Emanuel of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

  3. Dumbledore says of Sybil Trelawney: “That would make two (predicitons). I’ll have to raise her pay.” If any climate model has done better than “the sun will rise in the east”, it’s been kept a secret.
    The climate change we’ve supposedly already had has resulted in a dearth of tropical cyclones rather than an increase. Some have done more damage but that seems to be a matter of poor preparation and coastal development rather than frequency or ferocity of storms.
