Could global warming lead to quieter hurricane seasons? Experts say yes, with a caveat

This article discusses how global warming could lead to quieter hurricane seasons, but the experts add a caveat.

If there is any positive to come out of global warming it could be this: Its effects may work to reduce the number of Atlantic hurricanes we see in the future, according to the nation’s leading storm scientists.

That comes with a (significant) caveat. Experts say warming-induced sea level rise means the wall of water that surges into coastal areas during hurricanes will get more deadly and destructive with each storm that hits, especially in places like south Louisiana.
