Climate change models predict the occurrence and duration of severe storms will increase as the atmosphere warms from increasing CO2. People living in Vanuatu are realizing the truth in these calculations as a massive cyclone slammed into their western Pacific archipelago today.

Three monster cyclones are occurring simultaneously in the western Pacific and around Australia. Cyclone Pam  has destroyed large parts of Vanuatu as it roared past. NASA released a satellite image showing the extent of the cyclones in the region.

As the reports gather from the Vanuatu islander, let's hope the reporters will ask some questions on what climate change might be contributing to these storms.
