7. Can the causes be influenced by human behaviour?

Hurricanes and storms that generate storm surges are natural phenomena and we cannot control these. Nonetheless, it has been suggested that global warming (the climate change aspect heavily influenced by human-made green house gases emissions) can trigger off meteorological instability resulting in more frequent and intense hurricanes / surges. In this context, curbing global warming will contribute to lessening potential trends of increasing hurricane / storm surge activity.
