Extreme storm events such as super typhoon Haiyan, which wreaked havoc in the Philippines on Friday, are more likely in the future as the build-up of greenhouse gases warms the planet, scientists say.

- NO, of course not. Just another (the ~1001st) random outlier event. Don't connect the dots! Keep partying and evverything is fine.

Tragic news this morning, so far the death count is 22,000 and expected to go higher. Please consider a small donation to help. Here are some legitimate organizations:

Please consider doing what you can.

This may help as well:

Please do not forget the animals: Humane Society International and ASPCA International

Do not confuse SPCA International - this is not a legitimate organization.

Really scary, I don't care what ppl say, we all need to do our best with global warming and environment cos it really will help in the long term and we won't have ourselves to blame for things like this.

Some say the frequency of such events will increase. Others say it will decrease. Serious scientists say we should wait until we've numerically reconstructed the storm and see what mechanisms are required to reproduce it. I know that even if not every storm arises from climate-change that is not evidence against the trend, but after looking at the reconstructions rather than the hype that preceded any study of the events, there really is no evidence of any trend in extreme weather-events related to climate change, only a plausibility-argument (a good one, but only an argument that there could plausibly be an increase arising from climate change rather than that here really is one).

Increasing temperature gradients=increasing severity of storms, seems pretty simple really. Within in the "normal" range of weather events or climate change, or an increasing trend to more severe weather events? I don't know, but as we monitor these events over time, the trend does seem worrying...

Thanks for posting Cal.
