A Japanese engineer named Atsushi Shimizu has designed the world's first typhoon turbine that can harness energy from something more powerful.
A typhoon wind turbine could harness energy so immense it could provide renewable energy to all of Japan for half a century.
A new study suggests that super typhoons devastating Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines have become stronger since the '70s due to climate change.
Super Typhoon Nepartak is no anomaly. Rising oceanic temperatures are intensifying major currents, which will result in hotter and stormier weather over the next one hundred years.
Tropical cyclones - also known as typhoons - disperse powerful winds that can have a dramatic impact on nutrient cycling of an ecosystem. Island nations in the western Pacific and native plants in this region seem to be hit the hardest by these massive storms.
