At last, a scientific basis for suing coal-fired utilities when picnics are rained out.
The Associated Press reports:
Freakish weather disasters — from the sudden October snowstorm in the Northeast U.S. to the record floods in Thailand — are striking more often. And global warming is likely to spawn more similar weather extremes at a huge cost, says a draft summary of an international climate report obtained by The Associated Press.
The final draft of the report from a panel of the world’s top climate scientists paints a wild future for a world already weary of weather catastrophes costing billions of dollars. The report says costs will rise and perhaps some locations will become “increasingly marginal as places to live.”
The climate-weather distinction has been a problem for the alarmist community, especially since a British judge used it in 2007 to trash Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”.
And just last month, alarmists discounted the climate-weather link.
