Wind and waves growing across globe: study
Other authors include Swinburne University oceanographers Professor Alex Babanin and Dr Stefan Zieger.
“Careful analysis of satellite data shows that extreme oceanic wind speeds and ocean wave heights have increased dramatically over the last 23 years,” Professor Young said.
“Off the southern coast of Australia, the highest one per cent of waves have increased in height from approximately five metres to almost six metres over the last 20 years”
“Extreme conditions are where we are seeing the largest increases, but mean conditions are also going up.
“Extreme wind speeds have increased over most of the globe by approximately 10 per cent over the last 20 years, or 0.5 per cent every year.
“Extreme wave heights have increased by an average of seven per cent over the last 20 years, or 0.25 per cent a year in equatorial regions and 0.5 per cent a year in higher latitudes.
“The results have potential impact on the design of coastal buildings and other structures as well as shipping. They could also have a profound effect on the transfer of energy (heat) between the sea and the atmosphere – one of the great unknowns of climate change.
When the sea life dies, another disaster comes into play; the evaporation of the sea waters to form rain will become out of balance except for rare occasions of rain, and then torrential floods in other areas; the rains will carry with it disease because of the deadly brew that has culminated from a dead sea of carcasses; and the lack of a normally rain cooled environment will give way to scorching heat waves of such a magnitude that it will be like this:
Revelation 16:8, 9 “The Fourth Bowl
The fourth poured out his bowl on the sun. He was given the power to burn people with fire, and people were burned by the intense heat. So they blasphemed the name of God who had the power over these plagues, and they did not repent and give Him glory.”
