    “Another huge factor was the water temperature. Warm water is the energy that fuels hurricanes, and the Gulf water is 4 to 5 degrees warmer than normal.

    Water temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico vary along with weather, but some scientists said the warm waters are signs of human-caused climate change.

    ‘Have humans contributed to how dangerous Michael is?’ Kossin said. ‘Now we can look at how warm the waters are and that certainly has contributed to how intense Michael is and its intensification.’

    The warm waters, Kossin said, are a ‘human fingerprint’ of climate change.”
