Experts, in other words, do not disagree on the potential of man-made global warming to magnify the destructive power of the tropical storms known variously around the world as cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons.Kossin figured out that cyclones have drifted poleward in their respective hemispheres over the last three decades, a finding hailed by other hurricane gurus as the most unambiguous evidence so far that global warming has already had a direct impact. When it comes to cyclones and climate change, there are many points of near "universal agreement," Emanuel said. Earlier this year, Emanuel published a study pointing to yet another worrying climate "signal" emerging from the noise of raw data.Scientists have made great progress in anticipating the path a storm will follow, extending their predictive powers from a day or two to about a week. In 2015, Hurricane Patricia in the Pacific Ocean intensified more rapidly than any storm on record.A finding often cited as evidence that the jury is still out on whether climate change will boost cyclones is that scientists don't know if there will be more or fewer such storms in the future.
