NOAA: Global Warming and Hurricanes

NewImageSome refreshing truth from NOAA

“In summary, neither our model projections for the 21st century nor our analyses of trends in Atlantic hurricane and tropical storm counts over the past 120+ yr support the notion that greenhouse gas-induced warming leads to large increases in either tropical storm or overall hurricane numbers in the Atlantic. One modeling study projects a large (~100%) increase in Atlantic category 4-5 hurricanes over the 21st century, but we estimate that this increase may not be detectable until the latter half of the century.”

And this: 

But statistical tests reveal that this trend is so small, relative to the variability in the series, that it is not significantly distinguishable from zero
