I have no desire to have yet another thread hijacked by people who repeat the same objections against the reality of CC over and over again, no matter how many times those objections have been replied to. So don't even bother trying to post that stuff here. There are other threads to rehearse those things if that is your desire, this is not one of them. This particular thread will be focused on what the subject title suggests, and that is how it will be differentiated from other threads which are either more general environmental threads or which allow those arguments to be repeated ad nauseum.
I should perhaps add that I don't mind questioning hypothetical links between climate climate and severe weather--for example, some wanted to link increased intensity and frequency of hurricanes to warming oceans, but as the discussion wore on, it became clear that wind shears are just as important to the formation of hurricanes as warmer waters. These are complicated subjects with myriad variables. However, I don't want to see the fact that there have been past severe weather events (sometimes thousands of years in the past) be used as a rebuttal to the link between CC and severe weather today. This is fundamentally irrelevant to the debate.
Some of this overlaps with other threads that are out there, but I don't think that there is a thread that focuses specifically on this topic with this ideological slant and that will avoid the idiotic nitpicking and name calling that have afflicted other severe weather threads.
