The Wind Blows High

According to this study, wind speed is increasing over time and in many places around the world. 

This matches my personal observations here in Illinois, where wind is causing more destruction in recent years.  The study does not say whether or not climate change is causing wind to pick up, but does say that wind intensity can affect climate change.  It did not mention another established fact: warmer water feeds hurricanes, making them bigger and more dangerous.  If the wind is generally blowing faster, those two factors are liable to heterodyne in ways that humans will find extremely troublesome.  And when Mother Nature sends protestors to your house, not even plywood can keep them out.  Bend over and kiss your beachfront buildings goodbye.
