    WTF?!?! Most of what's reported in the article IS from today. It's not an overnight thing, so anything from the last 100 years might as well be today. NEXT!!!

    Not even a good try konradv. We are told by climate science that the climate since the 1980's is "unprecedented". Clearly, such claims are just more lies in an attempt to support the hoax; much like the attempted erasure of the MWP.

    I am so glad to hear you say that Kornhole..."It's not an overnight thing, so anything from the last 100 years might as well be today."

    So then we can just dispense with all the nonsense you keep defending. The entire case for AGW is based on the last 100-150 years for the most part. Glad to see you admit its nothing..

    Rapid changes in climate are not unprecedented. Into and out of the Younger Dryas, the change was accomplished in about a decade. The consequences lasted far longer, but the major change was done in a decade. The evidence we find for that change indicates that it was quite unpleasant for the life at that time in both directions.

    As for present changes, not extreme yet;

    Climate Week NYC 2011 | Swiss Re - Leading Global Reinsurer

    Climate Week NYC 2011: Rethinking resiliency – Innovative solutions for climate adaptationStrengthening community resilience to climate change will require new approaches and solutions. “Rethinking Resiliency,” a high-level panel sponsored by Swiss Re during Climate Week, highlighted how the public and private sectors can work together to make it happen.
    A more climate-resilient society benefits all. But where and how can business and government work together to adapt to climate change?
    Business, government and non-profit sector leaders explored these and other questions at the Swiss Re-sponsored panel “Rethinking Resiliency” during Climate Week NYC 2011, held at the New York Institute of Science and attended by over 200 people.
    They shared a view that the global debate must focus on both mitigating climate change and adapting to its unavoidable consequences. Insurance can play a major role in mobilizing the financing needed to turn ideas into action. It’s cheaper to invest in adaptation now than to deal with the cost of doing nothing tomorrow.
    Rebecca Grynspan, Associate Administrator at the United Nations Development Programme said adapting to climate change is a must, pointing out that the world already experiences about 500 weather-related disasters a year compared to about 100 per year in 1980. Developing countries suffer the most because they’re the most vulnerable. But there are encouraging signs that some of the poorest communities are taking matters into their own hands.

    Socks this is a thread asks people to think, not to blindly post propaganda.. Use your head for more than a PR repository for once.

    Rocks, the 500 weather disasters today vs 100 in 1980 is the product of a multi channel 24 hour a day 365 day per year news cycle. Tons of things make the news now that wouldn't have been worth consideration 30 years ago. Further, that news cycle has redefined what disaster is. The recent tropical storm that failed to wreck the east coast is evidence of that.

    Boy, the dumb fucks have once again proven what they are. This is Swiss Re. The people the insure the insurance companies. Munich Re, another firm that does the same, says exactly the same thing.

    Neither of them are pushing alternative energy, or anything but preparing for the change that they see happening. Happening as in insurance claims for damage. A five fold increase in weather related disasters in 30 years. Nothing at all compared to the events we will see if the climate undergoes a chaotic change of state.

    Who debated who they were? I for one debate the validity of anything regarding potential future disasters coming from an insurance company. How do you think insurance companies make money? Selling people insurance in the hopes they never need it. They don't sell insurance in the hopes they have to pay out imbecile...:cuckoo:

    Socks you seriously cannot be this naive and ignorant...:lol:
