"Extreme" weather isn't new, only the need by some to blame it on human activity.

It's no longer really extreme when it starts to become the norm, though, is it?

The norm? It's a big world but in the US in 2013 tornados (strength and number), hurricanes (strength and number) and wild fires were way down.

We haven't had a Cat 5 hurricane in the Atlantic since 2007. Not quite the prediction of Al Gore's movie was it?

For what it's worth, climate change, in aggregate, has slowed significantly since 1998 or so, to a degree that's been moderately puzzling to scientists, although there are reasonable explanations for it.

This is not a reason to doubt climate change, much as I desperately wish that it were, and that I did not have to deal with this in my future.

Jail for those who don't believe global warming/climate change?

Do you even read the article? Sure, the headline sounds juicy, but the article in no way relates to climate change or climate change deniers.

From the article:

Quote:
The ruling is popularly thought to have convicted scientists for failing to predict an earthquake. On the contrary, as risk assessment expert David Ropeik pointed out, the trial was actually about the failure of scientists to clearly communicate risks to the public. The convicted parties were accused of providing “inexact, incomplete and contradictory information”.

...

Crucially, the scientists, when consulted about ongoing tremors in the region, did not conclude that a devastating earthquake was impossible in L’Aquila. But, when the Defence Minister held a press conference saying there was no danger, they made no attempt to correct him.

Is Chicago a nice city to live in, Diemen?

I didn't much care for living in Chicago. Traffic was nearly constantly horrendous, and it was a bit too crowded/flat/sprawling for my tastes.

That said, for a fun day/night out, Chicago is a great town.

At first I thought that you were going to complain about Chicago's harsh winters and overall cold weather.

The reality about climate change is that cold areas will keep getting colder and hot areas will keep getting hotter.
Chicago is a victim to this given the continuous lower temperature records being registered every year.
