Data proving that global warming has a correlation with Hurricane strength may be void. According to new research done by Chris Landsea of the National Hurricane Center, outdated technology may have underestimated the strength of storms in the past.
"The methodology is fine. There's no problem with the way they analyzed the data," said Landsea, science and operations officer at the hurricane center. "The problem is with the data itself."
The research claims that past data of hurricane strength can not be accurately compared with recent data because of advancements made in satellite imagery technology.
