Strong Link Found between Hurricanes and Global Warming

From a article in Scientific American by David Biello:
"Stronger Link Found between Hurricanes and Global Warming" —

Using records dating back to 1855, hurricane researchers say they have uncovered an ongoing rise in the number of Atlantic hurricanes that tracks the increase in sea surface temperature related to climate change. Critics of such a link argue that this trend is merely because of better observations since the dawn of the satellite era in the 1970s. But the authors of the new study say the conclusion is hard to dodge.
