Hurricane hype


September 24. 2017 9:46PM




To the Editor: I read with interest Michael Sununu’s column, which seemed to flatly deny any causal connection between man-made carbon emissions and the increased strength and frequency of tropical hurricanes.

In light of Maria’s destructive path through Puerto Rico, maybe he should have waited just a bit longer before writing how infrequently Cat 3 – Cat 5 hurricanes make landfall, and how lucky we have been for the past 12 years as a consequence.
