This is the kind of news report that drives me crazy. What is the motivation of the people who put out this nonsense? A tidal wave is a tsunami. They have nothing to do with the weather or the climate. Nobody can link floods and hurricanes to mankind's effect on global climate. People can however, do exceptionally stupid things like build cities below sea level, like New Orleans.
"A tsunami is a series of waves created when a body of water, such as an ocean, is rapidly displaced on a massive scale. Earthquakes, mass movements above or below water, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions, landslides, large meteorite impacts and testing with nuclear weapons at sea all have the potential to generate a tsunami."
MADRID, Spain - Global warming is likely to bring more tidal waves, floods and hurricanes, leading meteorologists said on Monday.
"What we know is that global warming is very likely to lead in the future to more frequent tidal waves," the secretary general of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) told a news conference ahead of a meeting in Madrid on Monday."
