How can you possibly quote Michael Mann, the morally and ethically bankrupt creator of the hockey stick fabrication. Even the UN has stated that there is no indication of increasing frequency or magnitude of severe weather.
Higher sea surface temperatures are a necessary but not sufficient requirement for the formation of hurricanes and typhoons. It may be possible to cool the sea surface by two degrees K or so if we can increase the amount of solar energy reflected by clouds. A method proposed by John Latham would increase the concentration of cloud condensation nuclei in sea areas with low cloud to exploit a well-accepted bit of physics called the Twomey effect. Feasibility depends on a number of uncertain assumptions. I would like to send my calculations to people who can comment. If you can help, send your email address to S.Salter@ed.ac.uk.
