As everyone knows by now, Obama and his alarmist supporters will blame very single weather event on global warming induced climate change, even if it's weather incidents due to normal variability from changing ocean and atmospheric oscillations. Unfortunately for U.S. citizens, the president continues to reveal his shallow knowledge of science and climate, or an addiction to lying.
As is well established in climate science, a greater frequency of extreme weather events is more closely associated with global cooling climate conditions, such as during the Little Ice Age. Secondly, the severe weather trend over the last few decades has declined, providing actual evidence refuting the ignorant alarmist claims.
Case in point is the frequency of catastrophic Mediterranean storms on the southern coast of France. Per the researchers:
"Sedimentological and paleoecological results allow us to identify the most powerful storm events as historical period (i.e. paleostorm) with the presence of sand layer (50–150 μm) together with marine species (B. reticulatum) and the disappearance of lagoonal species. Based on our age model the last three catastrophic storm events recorded in this cores-transect occurred in 1742, 1839, and 1893.” "....the most severe storms all occurred before 1900, and long before the buildup of greenhouse gases."
The catastrophic storms happened during or close to the Little Ice Age, not during the "global warming" scare-mongering period of the last two decades.
