The article discusses the issue involving global warming and the possible reasons that could have lead to it. Charlie Wax, a professor of geosciences at Mississippi State University, commented that determining the presence of global warming is quite a difficult task. There are many different causes and effects in the weather. Hurricane attacks are part of a natural cycle in tropical cyclone activity.

    The huge warming of the Arctic that started in the early 1920s and lasted for almost two decades is one of the most spectacular climate events of the twentieth century. During the peak period 1930�40, the annually averaged temperature anomaly for the area 60��90�N amounted to...
