Zwick wants to burn skeptics houses down for not being a stupid as he is.
The models have proven incredibly accurate when it comes to projecting the overall rise in extreme events
He must be referring to the longest period on record without a major hurricane strike in the US. Or perhaps the decline in severe tornadoes?
Martin Hoerling, leader of the climate-extremes attribution team at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, wrote:
- Very few have undergone a scientific investigation of contributing factors, let alone human impacts. I believe that a read of the Lewis and Clark journals would reveal an impressive list of extreme weather also…. so what is one to make of this list for the 2001-2011 period provided in this Perspective by Coumou and Rahmstorf. The fact is that extremes happen, have happened, and will continue to happen. For some, their character, preferred phase, and intensity may be changing (aside from temperature extremes, the detection and attribution evidence to date is weak).
