Hurricane Katrina coverage

With the devastation that has hit New Orleans many have begun to ask if human induced climate change may have played a factor in increasing the destructive force of the hurricane. While it's an interesting question to ask, it would be premature to come to any conclusions on the matter. For those interested in learning more about this, I would suggest reading this post at Real Climate, Hurricanes and Global Warming - Is there a connection. It's very well written and gives a good balanced perspective on the issue.
