Interesting article with few stated facts. This article quotes a study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies. It states that they have been able to prove a link between hurricanes and global warming using satellite data from 1983-2005.

U.S. atmospheric scientists say they’ve found new evidence to support the theory that global warming produces stronger Atlantic Ocean hurricanes.
Working with global satellite data from 1983-2005, the researchers simplified newer and technologically advanced satellite information and aligned it with older records.
“The data says the Atlantic has been trending upwards in hurricane intensity quite a bit,” he said. “But the trends appear to be inflated or spurious everywhere else, meaning that we still can’t make any global statements.”
