Of course they do, we're getting quite used to each and every new weather event being linked to glowbull warming and expect nothing less.

"Basically, as we warm the world up, the atmosphere can hold more moisture in it," said Anne Jefferson
-
She didn't mention how wind shear could be caused by warming, probably overlooked that little detail.
-
Thankfully, there was a mention that:
"But for tornadoes, the jury is still out, because the historical record is too patchy."

Climate change may enhance one precursor of tornadoes while diminishing another one, she said. "We will need a lot more data and modeling before we can say for sure which effect will dominate."
-
And we'll need a lot more grant money to carry out this research, is what she didn't say, but we can take that as read.

"Tornadoes! Floods! Droughts! Scientists say it's global warming"

Of course it is... and climate research shows that there is a 100% correlation between Man's CO2 and the increase in extreme weather.

First, there is no doubt that CO2 is the main driver of climate change. For proof of this statement of "fact" just Google CO2 and climate change -or skip the middleman and go straight to realclimate.org .

Second, each person emits 1 ton of CO2 annually which means more people = more CO2.

Now, here is the correlation that is undeniable proof that Man causes severe weather:

*Before Man was on this Earth there was NOT a single severe weather event recorded.

*As people started populating the planet severe weather was suddenly observed.

*With greater numbers of people came greater numbers of known storms.

*There are more storms observed to date, than at any other time in human history.

Yes, my denier friends, these "facts" are... shall we say -undeniable.

Since we have known of the Mississippi it has flooded.

http://www.deltaculturalcenter.com/geography/

"The Flood of 1927

Life in the Delta is continuously jeopardized by the Mississippi River and its natural tendency to flood. The explorers accompanying Hernando De Soto in 1543 were the first Europeans to witness the flooding of the Mississippi River. For the first permanent European settlers along the Mississippi River, the most feared word was "flood."

Historical records show that great floods occurred frequently on the banks of the Mississippi-nine great floods were recorded between 1782 and 1850......

The year 2002 marked the 75th anniversary of the most devastating flood in history along the Mississippi River. The 1927 flood occurred when the Mississippi River broke through levees in seven states (Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee) forcing over 42 major crevasses and inundating an area of approximately 26,000 square miles.

The nation's most destructive flood began with heavy rains in the summer of 1926 and continued throughout the spring of 1927......

By July 1, the waters finally began to recede but 1.5 million acres of land was still under water."

And man does have a part in all the flooding in the Mississippi flood plains.

http://www.umesc.usgs.gov/reports_publication...
"During the past 200 years, the Mississippi River and its floodplain have been-and continue to be- seriously degraded by extensive water pollution, wetland drainage, deforestation, habitat fragmentation, water-flow modification, and floodplain development. Two of the most deleterious river modifications have been (1) levee construction, resulting in a 90% reduction in the amount of seasonally inundated floodplain and (2) alignment and maintenance of the navigation channel traversing 85% of the Riverís length. Altered hydrology and sedimentation patterns have progressed to the point that geomorphic processes have been severely disrupted."

Alarmists have no interest whatsoever in history, because simply checking back on it makes their scary stories about current weather events less scary and frightening the young is what they must achieve for their mission to succeed.

Hmmm, no mention of hurricanes in the header, that's easily remedied:
hurricanes, hurricane reduction, hurricanes fewer, hurricanes more intense, hurricanes not,
