I cannot be the only one who saw the articles being shared on facebook, encouraging gun owners to shoot at them? It was a facebook group claiming “LETS SHOW IRMA THAT WE SHOOT FIRST.” I also saw that several thousand Floridians (?) attached fans to their roofs attempting to ‘blow’ the hurricane away… Definitely not how to stop a hurricane.
Needless to say we need an actual plan to combat these hurricanes. Which seem to be hitting North America and the surrounding islands at increasing frequency. Maybe my memory serves me wrong, but were there really three crazy hurricanes in a year last year? Watch me almost cry about what this means for the polar bears.
Scientific research does have varying conclusions, but whether the global warming is due to Anthropogenic reasons or the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, we are in store for higher intensity hurricanes with an increased destructive potential per storm. Some reports say that this increase in intense storm occurence will mean fewer sepparate hurricanes, but that more will be in that category 4 and 5.
