To Shaun: the ‘natural disaster’ of this hurricane now says not only was it caused by climate change BUT ALSO oil companies and governments. This said, the natural disaster had some element of human involvement.
Typhoons are heat engines.. there’s a direct link between severity and sea temperatures.. there’s also a direct link between sea temperatures and levels of CO2 released into the atmosphere. Typhoons are normal, super typhoons of unprecedented power are fueled by Climate Change. Responsible for the deaths of at least 5000 innocent people, and the horrific destruction caused by Haiyan/Yolanda are the companies who get over $500 billion a year subsidies on top of their profits to extract and burn fossil fuels when cheap renewables are available.
