In just a day’s time, Super Typhoon Goni transformed from an ordinary Pacific cyclone into the year’s most intense storm on the planet. The typhoon is on a beeline for the Philippines, where it is expected to roar ashore Sunday.

Goni’s explosive intensification occurred over the warm waters in the western Pacific Ocean. Its peak winds catapulted from just shy of 100 mph to nearly 180 mph between Thursday and Friday night local time.

Once its peak winds surpassed 150 mph, it qualified as a “super typhoon,” which is equivalent to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the Atlantic. But it grew even more intense, comparable to a strong Category 5.

Its leap in strength occurred over waters about 2 to 3 degrees (1 to 1.5 Celsius) warmer than normal. Such rapid intensification is made more likely by human-caused climate change, which has raised ocean temperatures globally.

We could buy him out and he could head to the Philippines? It's just a thought. But hey there's a good chance I'll be here all next week if anyone needs a laugh 🙂...

It is this sentence:

Such rapid intensification is made more likely by human-caused climate change

But they didn't say those waters were that temp because of human caused climate change. Just that human caused climate change could make a Tsunami worse.

So if the premise that humans changing the environment is a very bad thing why are we trying to pass legislation to do just that?

Can't we just send him any way? Halloween is coming , just dress him up. Lol .. Don't spoil my weekend!

Seems the data of the wind speeds and ocean temperatures are likely to be accurate. The last sentence about the intensification being caused by humans seems speculative at best. Makes one wonder about the author intentions. (Not saying humans have not and cannot cause changes to the environment.) I wonder if the article was about causes and possible results of climate change or about the hurricane. Regardless, it is interesting to know about. Thanks for the info.

Exactly my point. Did the author really care about a devastating tsunami and the damage and lives it would cause or about climate change and whose fault it is?

Summary of Atlantic IndicesFigure 3: Normalized Atlantic Indices. Since the late-19th Century global (green) and tropical Atlantic (blue) temperatures have risen – an increase that was partly driven by increased greenhouse gases. If one does not account for possible missed storms (first red line) Atlantic tropical storms appear to have increased with temperature; however, once one accounts for possible missed storms (second and third red lines) basinwide storms have not exhibited a significant increase. When one focuses only on landfalling storms (yellow lines) the nominal trend has been for a decrease. Figure adapted from Vecchi and Knutson (2008, J. Climate)
No correlation of storm numbers or intensity with global average studies. In fact, recent trend is decreasing number & size of storms.

There ya go with a non biased scientific article.

Get with the program Doc. It's more likely human caused climate change created the recession of 2008.

That or Republicans....I can never remember.

I'm bored this AM, so I'll make a comment here.....The Watermelon (Green on the outside, Red on the inside) propagandists aren't even very bright....They've been repeating the lie about "warm oceans driving hurricanes" for decades now....That's outright bad science.....Storms are driven by air pressure gradients, not temperature gradients. "Low pressure tropical storms" anyone?...The lower the pressure at the center of a storm, probably the bigger the gradient (difference in pressure) to the surrounding air. Wind blows from high pressure to low pressure, not high temp to low temp.

If you want to run an air power tool in your garage, you use a "compressor," not a furnace.

Won't try to change peoples minds about gw...Its kinda like trying to convince them to wear masks.

A study showed masks are made in factories and factories consume energy and producing energy requires fossil fuels, ergo, wearing masks contributes to climate change.
