. . . it is likely that the glboal frequency of occurrence oftropical cyclones will either decrease or remain essentially unchanged, concurrent with a likely increase in both glboal mean tropicalcyclone maximum wind speed and precipitation rates. The future influence of climate change on tropical cyclones is likely to vary byregion, but the specific characteristics of the changes are not yet well quantified and there is low confidence in region-specificprojections of frequency and intensity. While, in principle, there is no problem with scientists holding outlier views, in this case the authors have actually made errors in theirrepresentation of the current state of the science.Roger Pielke Jr, Professor and Director, Center for Science and Technology Policy Research, University of Colorado,Boulder, CO, USThey respond today with this:November 12, 2013 9:27 pm We have to keep examining dataFrom Lord Hunt and Prof Johnny Chan.Sir, As meteorologists with some experience we were surprised by the accusation (Letters, October 21) by Professor Roger Pielke Jr (aleading policy academic whose thesis about vulnerability we agree with) that our FT article We must face up to the rising threat fromcoastal storms (October 17) was not based on good science, and contradicted the recent IPCC Working Group 1 Report.Paragraph B1 of the report concludes that extreme weather events are likely to have become frequent, severe and last longer, with theimplication in other parts of the report (not stated very clearly) that these trends will continue, unless or until human influences on theglobal climate are mitigated. The published data on extreme events mentioned in our article (some of which, although from highlyreputable institutions, had not been submitted or read by IPCC) provide details of where and how these events occur.The IPCC Working Group 1 Report has done a fine job, but scientists need to keep looking at data and providing explanations abouttrends in severe climatic and weather events, whether or not they coincide with the current IPCC consensus.Julian Hunt, Former Director, British Meteorological Office; Johnny Chan, Chair, Tropical Cyclone Panel, WorldMeteorological Organisation
