More Frequent Large-Scale Tornadoes Expected

Recent postings have dealt with the likelihood of more frequent floods and now we have this citation of research on tornadoes.  It does seem that EM is a a field of endeavor likely to grow.

From HSNewswire, Tornadoes:More frequent large-scale tornado outbreaks.

The frequency of large-scale tornado outbreaks is increasing in the United States, particularly when it comes to the most extreme events, according to new research. The researchers found that the increase in tornado outbreaks does not appear to be the result of a warming climate as earlier models suggested. Instead, their findings tie the growth in frequency to trends in the vertical wind shear found in certain supercells—a change not so far associated with a warmer climate.

    Just to clarify – fewer tornadoes, but the ones that do occur are happening more in bunches.
