METEO-FRANCE ECOLE NATIONALE DE LA METEOROLOGIE CONCOURS INTERNE et EMPLOIS RESERVES 2006 DE TECHNICIEN SUPERIEUR DE LA METEOROLOGIE FILIERE EXPLOITATION EPREUVE DELANGUE VIVANTE: ANGLAIS Durée : 1 heureCoefficient : 2 Traduire le texte suivant(dictionnaire non autorisé).  Theatmospheric convulsion that was hurricane Katrina had barely left the Gulf Coast before its sister Rita was spinning to life out in the Atlantic. In the three weeks between them, five other named storms had lived and died in the warm atlantic waters without making the same headlines their ferocious sisters did. With more than two months left in the official hurricane season, only Stan, Tammy, Vince and Wilma are still available on the National Hurricane Center’s annual list of 21 storm names. If the next few weeks go like the past few, those names will be used up too and the storms that follow will be identified simply by Greek letters. Never in the 52 years of naming storms has there been a Hurricane Alpha.  If2005 goes down as the worst hurricane season on record in the North Atlantic, it will join 2004 as one of the most violent ever. (...) The question is : Is global warming to blame ? Foryears, environmentalists have warned that one of the first and most reliable signs of a climatological crash would be an upsurge in the most violent hurricanes, the kind that thrive in a suddenly warmer world. Scientists are quick to point out that changes in the weather and climate change are two different things. But now after watching two Gulf Coast hurricanes reach Category 5 in the space of four weeks, even skeptical scientists are starting to wonder whether something serious might be going on.  “Thereis no doubt that climate is changing and humans are partly responsible” says Kevin Trenberg, head of the climate analysis section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder Colorado.  (TimeMagazine.
