Earth Getting Windier

Here is a beautiful picture from a fairly recent article, National Geographic, I believe, used to illustrate recent increases in high winds around the globe. As thunderstorms and tornados tore across the south recently, this fact was brought home. The tornados were the deadliest since 2008. Did you know that the vast majority of tornadoes in the world occur in North America? Only a very few have been reported on other continents, although they have been reported on every continent except antartica.
