The increase in temperature around the world leads to an increased temperature of the waters of oceans and seas. Hurricanes and storms, that receive their energy from warm water, are thereby predicted to become more frequent and more intense. The rising temperatures that are a direct result of climate change will cause more hurricanes and storms that last longer, are capable of much greater damage due to their high intensity, and that can bring greater destruction to coastal regions and the people and communities that inhabit them. These increased hurricanes and storms that are caused by climate change hold the ability to damage the ecosystem of the world which is bound to these coastal regions and communities.
