ScienceDaily (May 21, 2010) — The upper layer of the world's ocean has warmed since 1993, indicating a strong climate change signal, according to a new study. The energy stored is enough to power nearly 500 100-watt light bulbs per each of the roughly 6.7 billion people on the planet.

The current cycle of deluge and drought is unprecedented. One year there is hardly any snow. The next there is so much that it looks like winter at the end of May. No doubt this is one of the effects of global warming. Thanks for sharing this article.

A warmer climate means more energy in the atmosphere. Weather is the Earth's way of moving that energy around, trying to equalize it. That means bigger storms moving more energy.

They're going to have to add a "Category 6" to the hurricane scale.
