      NOAA ATTRIBUTES RECENT INCREASE IN HURRICANE ACTIVITY
      TO NATURALLY OCCURRING MULTI-DECADAL CLIMATE VARIABILITY
      Nov. 29, 2005 � The nation is now wrapping up the 11th year of a new
      era of heightened Atlantic hurricane activity. This era has been
      unfolding in the Atlantic since 1995, and is expected to continue
      for the next decade or perhaps longer. NOAA attributes this
      increased activity to natural occurring cycles in tropical climate
      patterns near the equator. These cycles, called "the tropical multi-
      decadal signal," typically last several decades (20 to 30 years or
      even longer). As a result, the North Atlantic experiences
      alternating decades long (20 to 30 year periods or even longer) of
      above normal or below normal hurricane seasons. NOAA research shows
      that the tropical multi-decadal signal is causing the increased
      Atlantic hurricane activity since 1995, and is not related to
      greenhouse warming. (Click NOAA image for larger view of North
