Let’s Just Blame Israel…

HurricaneWe not only made it to the list of top Earth-Hackers of 2007, we also made it to spot 25 of Discover Magazine’s list of Top Science Stories of 2007!

A team of Israeli atmospheric scientists from Tel Aviv University explored the influence of intense lightning storms from East Africa on the world weather patterns.

They discovered that “More than 90% of the tropical storms and hurricanes during these 2 years (of their study) were preceded by periods of above average thunderstorm activity in eastern Africa.”

It seems that the media tends to blame Israel for the political instability in the Middle East. Some have blamed Israel for global warming. Now there’s one more thing we can be blamed for… Florida’s hurricane problem! I understand that Israel is not actually in East Africa, well if the shoe fits…
