    Climate change is not only influencing extreme weather events, it's causing them



    Second year in a row...so, that state of denial must be getting harder and harder to maintain.
    The certain marker for nonsense.

    And btw, temperatures have fallen​ since 2016.

    ". . . For the second year in a row, the annual report from the American Meteorological Society found weather extremes that could not have happened without human-caused warming of the climate. Advances in scientific modeling and additional climbs in temperatures are making the connection between global warming and extreme weather much more concrete. . . ."

    Tornadoes are down.

    Tornado counts are Detrended and Inflation Adjusted “because the increase in tornado reports over the last 54 years is almost entirely due to secular trends such as population increase, increased tornado awareness, and more robust and advanced reporting networks.” NOAA – Storm Prediction Center

    Do you have any more recent information? That stops at 2014, 4 years ago.

    Here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tornadoes_of_2017
    This page documents notable tornadoes and tornado outbreaks worldwide in 2017. Strong and destructive tornadoes form most frequently in the United States, Brazil, Bangladesh, and Eastern India, but they can occur almost anywhere under the right conditions. Tornadoes also develop occasionally in southern Canada during the Northern Hemisphere's summer and somewhat regularly at other times of the year across Europe, Asia, and Australia. Tornadic events are often accompanied with other forms of severe weather, including strong thunderstorms, strong winds, and hail.

    There were 1,522 reports of tornadoes in the United States in 2017,[1] of which 1,418 were confirmed. Worldwide, 36 fatalities have been confirmed worldwide in 2017: 35 in the United States[2] and one in Brazil. The tornado season in 2017 started exceptionally early, having the second most active January since records began in 1950, and one of the most active first quarters in recorded history. 2017 also had four high risks issued by the Storm Prediction Center, making this the most active in the sense of high risks since 2011, which had a total of five high risks issued throughout the entire year.

    NOAA data seem to stop in 2014. This is recent.

    U.S. Tornadoes Are Near a 13-Year Low in 2018 | The Weather Channel

    https://weather.com/.../tornado/.../...ited-states-ne...





    May 23, 2018 - Residents of Tornado Alley have been treated to a relatively quiet year of tornadoes so far in 2018, with the number of reported tornadoes near a 13-year low. As of Tuesday, a preliminary 362tornadoes have been reported to the National Weather Service this year, barely more than half the average through that date.

    At a glance, it appears we now swing from record highs to record lows. But that's just over the last few years.

    No one, especially me, is telling you anything close to what you should think. It was a simple statement, the word "I" should have let you know it was relating to me, not you. But, as usual, you are over the edge with your imagination and creative reading.

    Actually the trend line has been down for many years.
