Global Warming Increases the Frequency of Hurricanes Hitting the Caribbeans During the months from roughly June through November the islands of the Caribbean Sea have always been at risk for hurricanes. In recent decades global climate change has resulted in a warming of the ocean surface and as a result an increase in the potential for powerful storms. This trend toward global warming means that both the power and frequency of hurricanes will most likely increase. This paper will explain how global warming increases the frequency of hurricanes hitting the Caribbean. It will describe how this happens and illustrate the trend toward more frequent and powerful storms that has already had a major impact on the environment and people of this...The end:
