Trade Winds Dying

Here in Hawaii, the number of trade wind days has dropped 30% in the last 40 years:

Have those of you in other trade wind areas like the Carribean noticed a drop in trade winds over even the last 10 or 20 years?

If things continue, there may not be an around the world "trade wind" route in the next 50 years.
