First, I prefer to use “climate change”, instead of “global warming”, because I believe what has been happening to our planet since late 1990’s is beyond “warming” or cooling”: It’s the collapse of well known weather patterns.
Second, I avoid making a statement that would point at “human activities” as the only cause of this climatological chaos. Our industries, our CO2 emissions, deforestation and pollution all contribute to this nightmare but the ancient records show there is much more than that. Cutting the emissions, being enviromental friendly and stopping the pollution are our duties as the inhabitants of this planet but these are far from being enough to stop the climate change we are experiencing.
Okay, after these necessary statements, let’s see the results of a new study based upon the analysis of the weather data: Hurricanes, cyclones and all tropical storms are becoming more and more violent (and costly) to our civilization, with the help of the climate change and its effects.
