I propose a new topic that thoroughly discusses the causes and effects of weather and hurricanes. Included would be defense systems that protect humans, life, and property. Of particular importance is calculus and combinatorics. God bless the USA.

How about you kick off the topic, with your own thoughts, theories, etc?

Give us something to work with here

Okay... so start with something. Don't just propose the topic -- give us some words of wisdom, here (I'm actually all for the calculus bits.)

For instance, here's a paper on statistical modeling of weather:

And here's a PDF from NOAA talking specifically about CO2 warmed climate and the increased intensity of hurricanes:

This one's interesting because the researchers are Japanese and are at a MUCH greater risk from typhoons (Pacific hurricanes) if the CO2 warming model is correct.

If I'm reading right, the scientists seem to be using some fairly standard sets of modeling programs that have developed over the years. Perhaps we should also list those when making comments (find out WHAT software the scientists are using for modeling, WHERE the area is they're modeling, and if there are any differences in the results when one model is used over the other.)

Other intesting notes:
Apparently the records before 1900 are not as precise as the 1900's onward and this should be taken into account when looking at data:

And it'd be interesting to see if the hurricanes still are fluctuating on that decades-long cycle described here:
