There needs to be a Reality Check, concerning the proven FALSE ASSERTION that rising CO2 levels cause more severe weather events .... and more damage to Planet Earth. After all, the textbook-defined "Pressure Gradient Force" is a law of nature by which the closer the temps between the poles and the Equator happen to be, the lesser is the turbulence in the atmosphere.
For those in the American public school system, phases of global warming (such as the absolutely proven Medieval Warm Period) are times by which temperatures between the poles and the Equator come closer to each other. Global Cooling phases (such as the 1284-1840 Little Ice Age) are accompanied by temperatures between the poles and the Equator getting further apart from each other.
This means that global warming = less atmospheric turbulence, while global cooling = more atmospheric turbulence Plus, El Nino brings with it "wind shearing propensity." And of course, El Nino directs heat in an Eastward direction.
All in all, Planet Earth has a mechanism by which the planet takes action to balance itself. When the DIFFERENCE in temps between the poles and the Equator increase, the Earth experiences an imbalance. So, it goes about, to balance things out. Thus come hurricanes which happen to be nature's way of sending excess heat from the Tropics northward.
It's during global cooling phases when more turbulent hurricanes such as Camille occur. Camille occurred during the 1940-1979 temperature decline that Michael Mann hid in his hockey stick graph. This decline was mentioned in the Climategate emails of 2009. If you have viewed recent hurricane season stats, you would see that there are now more low-speed cyclones called Tropical Storms.
BTW, during pronounced global cooling phases, there still occurs droughts and heatwaves, such as the Great Tudor Heatwave & Drought of 1540. More importantly, the repeated assertion that "None of this has ever happened before" must be recognized as the lie it is, when talking about any recent heatwave, cyclone, or flood. "It" all happened previously, in more pronounced severity --- in tragic proportions ... in more pronounced turbulency & in many more deaths. So, historical accounts easily provide the evidence to show that the demonization of CO2 is a propagandist's lie.
A certain British speech giver, along with the hockey stick graph drawer, Michael Mann, asserted that the past one thousand years were years of ongoing & non-stop mild weather, up and unto the Industrial Revolution. For anyone enterprising enough to have studied even a small sample of the historical chronicles, the almanacs, the ship logs, the temperature reports, the newspaper articles, and the magazine articles on the subject, this mild-weather assertion is an insult to the reasonable person's intelligence.
The historical accounts, the military logs, the monastic records, the proxy evidence, the Elbe River "hunger stones" of Central Europe, all show that life on Earth has been a challenge even when co2 was very low. Life on Earth has been tragic, even during low co2 levels. It drained people. Yet, civilization continued and mankind survived. A Candyland is something that Planet Earth is not.
