I understand the need for a study to quantify it, but I don't understand how the increase itself can even be called a finding ?

I thought it completely obvious that there is more energy in the global "climate system", so everything is amplified. When the sun heat is increased on two surfaces with different heat capacities and albedos, the temperature difference between them is increased, thus the pressure difference, thus the wind.

What am I missing ?

If you declared something this complex to be obvious, but you've not actually measured it, then it's not a "finding" but a hypothesis.

There have been studies predicting the opposite. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/dec/11/global-w...

You could also think that with stronger insulation, temperatures will be more even across the globe and this in turn will reduce wind speeds.
