The analysis suggests that "with increasing sea surface temperatures, we can expect more intense hurricanes," reports co-author Nathan Gillett of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia , Norwich, United Kingdom.

"It is another piece of the puzzle that climate change is happening and we are influencing it," said Nathan Gillet, a climate researcher at the University of East Anglia.
Human emissions of gases such as methane and carbon dioxide that trap heat in the atmosphere are widely blamed for changes in the climate.Scientists say average global temperatures will rise by 2 to 6 degrees Celsius (4 to 11 Fahrenheit) by the end of the century, causing droughts, floods and violent storms.
Warmer air can hold more water vapor.
"It has been predicted for a long time that humidity would increase with greenhouse gas increases," said Gillet, who led the study.
"But this is the first study that shows a significant human impact on surface humidity," he said in a telephone interview.
The British team collected data from weather stations, buoys and ships across the world to measure the effect of rising greenhouse gases on humidity between 1973 and 1999.
A computer simulation showed that natural events such as volcanoes and variations in the sun's brightness could not alone have produced the increase in humidity, and pointed to greenhouse gases generated by humans, Gillet said.
"It is getting moister at the surface, so humidity is increasing," Gillet said."You only see that in the model with the human effect."
The findings are especially important for tropical regions, which will see the largest increase in humidity because they are warm already, he said.
The research also provides a better understanding of potential changes in the earth's water cycle, which could result in floods and droughts that have an even bigger impact on people than rising temperatures, he added.

Global warming ends white Christmas - Yahoo! News UK [cached]
The environmental campaign group spokesman was speaking as Dr Nathan Gillett, a lecturer in climate change at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, made similar predictions in an interview with his local newspaper.
"White winters are already rare in Norwich.There are less than one in 20.I think there is a chance we will never see a white Christmas again," Dr Gillett told the Norwich Evening News.
"By the middle of the century I don't think we are going to have any more white Christmases because of global warming.
He said: "In Norfolk milder winters mean that pests which normally got killed by the cold weather won't get killed so that could be bad news for farmers that is not the worst impact of climate change.
