Default "More Hurricanes to hit Western Europe due to global warming"

This may sound like a sensational Daily Wail headline but it's actually the title of a peer-reviewed piece of research. It's something I've been interested in, should SSTs rise in the Atlantic whether a storm that is still classified as tropical could hit NW Europe (i.e. the coastline from Southern France northwards) given the right SST anomalies and brisk enough upper steering currents. We've come relatively close in recent years...

Given that it uses 'due' where it should use 'owing', it could well be
from any British daily.
There won't be a hurricane here in my life time but there may be some
force 12 winds.

The author - I don't think - is British, so the blame more lies with the editors of the journal!

I doubt it too but I don't think necessarily it's a 0% chance.

The names listed at the top of the article are Dutch, and it is published under the auspices of the KNMI (Dutch Met Office), so I think Gianna must excuse them that error (and I agree with her that it is one).

I think you must have been living in Brussels too long!

"Due to" is now acceptable as an alternative to "owing to", e.g. in BBC
English:

Cheers, Alastair.

Not in my book it isn't. If we accept that, it'll break the line on the "and I/me" consensus in no time.

That does not seem to have happened as far as Maeve Maddox is concerned!

On the other hand, the title should read "More hurricane strength storms to
hit Western Europe due to global warming" since hurricanes only exist in the
tropics and become post-tropical storms when they leave the tropics.

Cheers, Alastair.

Not the Hurricane increase that never was again, Richard.

Even if we did get the odd hurricane approaching our shores you'd never hear about it from the BBC, as the 'h' word is now banned.
Remember that little thing with an eye that came up the Bristol Channel a few years back? Dan Corbett called it a hurricane and look what happened to him-next boat out to New Zealand!

We have been told how the frequency and intensity of hurricanes would
increase from about 1999, but unless my memory is failing me, there
does not seem to be much change.

Presumably the one that ventured up the E coast of the USA last year is
"proof" that the dire warnings of the hysterical media were spot on?
