It could very well be that higher CO2 levels may be the catalyst in a greater meterological event.
But is the chain of events already underway. Yes we need to change our use of resources, but we also need to prepare for the likelihood certain events have already begun that we can not reverse.
And for the future, the [IPCC] draft gives even less succour to those seeking here a new mandate for urgent action on greenhouse gas emissions, declaring: “Uncertainty in the sign of projected changes in climate extremes over the coming two to three decades is relatively large because climate change signals are expected to be relatively small compared to natural climate variability"

Do you not think there is the remotest possibility that the refusal by these people to recognise the obvious is financially inspired?
Their is just to much change going on than too just call it an abnormality or a Normal Climatic Shift...Our planet goes through natural changes thats a fact, but changes happen over 1000's of years not decades.
Yank_LFC_FAN, how do you know that climate change hasn't in history occurred over decades or is that just your opinion?
