Yahoo! News – UN Storm Brews Over Hurricane-Global Warming Link

Yahoo! News – UN Storm Brews Over Hurricane-Global Warming Link: “NEW YORK (Reuters) – A U.S. government hurricane scientist has resigned from the United Nations (news – web sites)’ science panel on climate change because, he said, a lead author in the group had too strongly linked global warming to hurricanes.

The issue of whether climate change is leading to increased severity of hurricanes came to a head late last year at a conference at Harvard University where researchers, including the school’s Dr. Paul Epstein, said recent storms, droughts and heat waves are probably being caused by global warming.

The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which evaluates the state of climate science as a basis for informed policy action concluded in its most recent report that greenhouse gases from autos and industry contribute to global warming.”

===============================================

And thus in our hypothetical thriller, political strife ensues after a bad hurricane season, where heavy hit nations blame greenhouse gas producing nations for the damage to thier country and people.
