More Severe Storms in 2009 and Beyond?

What if we think about these two items together?

  • NASA Study Links Severe Storm Increases and Global Warming
  • UK Met Office Forecasts 2009 to be One of Top 5 Warmest Years on Record Despite Cool Pacific
  • "The 2009 forecast includes an updated decadal forecast using a Met Office climate model. This indicates a rapid return of global temperature to the long-term warming trend, with an increasing probability of record temperatures after 2009" [bolding added].
    Worried yet?
