Did climate change cause Super Typhoon Haiyan?

Super Typhoon Haiyan killed at least 10,000 people in Philippines. Most scientists think that hotter climate contributes to some increase in hurricane strength. Therefore, climate change will mean more intense tropical storms.
Did you know that a hurricane and a typhoon are the same thing, except one takes place in the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific and the other in the South Pacific.
