Instead of being due to global warming, Landsea believes that the current increase in hurricane activity is part of a natural cycle that scientists call the Atlantic multi-decadal mode. Every 20 to 40 years, Atlantic Ocean and atmospheric conditions conspire to produce just the right conditions to cause increased storm and hurricane activity.
The Atlantic Ocean is currently going through an active period of hurricane activity that began in 1995 and that has continued to the present. Scientists consider the period prior to that—the years from 1971 to 1994—to be a quiet period of low hurricane activity.
Hurricane Wilma whirled into the record books Tuesday, on course to sideswipe Central America or Mexico and looming as a "significant threat" to Florida by the weekend.

Much-feared Hurricane Wilma has started to make landfall on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, where tens of thousands of people have moved to safety.
The centre of the powerful Category Four storm is moving slowly towards the north-east of the peninsula where it is expected to linger for several hours.
Heavy rains and mudslides triggered by Wilma have killed at least 13 people in the Caribbean, mostly in Haiti.
The hurricane is expected to hit Florida late on Sunday.
