Hurricanes thrived in cooler seas

I wonder if this study will change the hurricane causality assertions by global warming proponents:
"Hurricanes over the past 5,000 years appear to have been controlled more by El Nino and an African monsoon than warm sea surface temperatures, such as those caused by global warming, researchers said Wednesday.

The study, published in the journal Nature, adds to the debate on whether seas warmed by greenhouse gas emissions lead to more hurricanes, such as those that bashed the Gulf of Mexico in 2005."
Probably not. There is so much emotional investment as well as movie cover art to back away from the hurricane-global warming mythology. We'll see.
