In 2012, the US had ELEVEN weather events that cost more than $1 billion...

----------

Preliminary Info on 2012 U.S. Billion-Dollar Extreme Weather/Climate Events

Today, NOAA released preliminary information on extreme weather and climate events in the U.S. for 2012 that are known to have reached the $1 billion threshold in losses.

As of December 20, NOAA estimates that the nation experienced 11 such events, to include seven severe weather/tornado events, two tropical storm/hurricane events, and the yearlong drought and associated wildfires.

These eleven events combined are believed to have caused 349 deaths
...
Economic losses for two events, Sandy and the yearlong drought, are the big drivers this year in terms of costs and are still being calculated. It will take months to develop a final, reliable estimate for each. Given how big these events are likely to be, NOAA estimates 2012 will surpass 2011 (exceeding $60 billion, CPI-adjusted to 2012 dollars) in terms of aggregate costs for annual billion-dollar disasters, even with fewer number of billion-dollar disasters.

The greatest annual loss to date was 2005 when Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Wilma and Dennis struck Florida and the Gulf Coast states (costs exceeded $187 billion, CPI-adjusted to 2012 dollars).

When you can only think short-term and cannot comprehend the long-term damage of inaction, you will inevitably reach conclusions like you do. It's a function of narrow self-interest and complete disregard for the interests of others. IOW - typical conservative ideological thinking.

Rainstorm Sandy (and the other events) are weather and not climate change.

The damage from Rainstorm Sandy would have been minimal if people didn't build their homes on sand bars and filled tidal marshes. Giving these fools federal taxpayer dollars to rebuild on sand bars is insanity.

You think it's normal to have eleven storms where the damage exceeds $1 billion in one year?

Be serious.

Global warming didn't work so now it's Climate Change . No shyt - most of the country has four seasons. When the weirdos started this 'Erf Day' crap in 1969 - they said a new Ice Age was coming & that by the 2000, most of Europe would have starved to death from the inability to grow food. Guess what - WRONG . Then it was the Ozone - spotted owls & snail darters ! Hogwash - smoke another bowl or glass pipe & dream up some more BS to suck money out of the taxpayers instead of getting a real job.

Aaaaaaaannnndd there it is!

Every single wingnut. Every single time. Without exception.

When they've been defeated in legitimate argument, they resort to personal attacks.

They come with a veneer of politeness and respect, but start confronting their bullshit with facts and reality and they are all are the same underneath - name-calling personal attackers.

Thank you JM. You've lived up to the stereotype.

No, your ignorance is showing. Climate change is the result of global warming. There's been no change in terminology.

You're embarrassing yourself. Go get educated.

Personal attacks? My god man, I've looked over your past posts and I will say you are King of personal attacks. So in your own words you are defeated. What a loser. LMFAO

Sorry, you don't know what you're talking about.

See, the issue is people who begin making personal attacks rather than debating the issue. I never do that first. But when someone makes that decision, I'm happy to play along.

So any time you see me calling anyone names it's because they want it that way. It's because that's the game they started. I'm just playing by their rules.

I've been nothing but respectful to JM since he showed up. We've been debating the issues here - right up until he started throwing the insults. If that's the way he wants to play, fine. But if you actually read over past posts, you'll see that HE made that decision, not me.

Hope that clears things up for you.
