Predictions by IPCC "experts" claimed that extreme climate change, due to global warming, would produce an increasing level of catastrophic severe weather events - the actual empirical evidence proves that the predictions have no scientific basis

Read here. The accelerating global temperatures and increasing incidence and severity of tropical hurricanes and cyclones were supposed to be the clear-cut evidence that human CO2 emissions were wreaking havoc on Earth's climate. But a funny thing happened on the way to the climate apocalypse predicted by the IPCC, NOAA and NASA...nothing.
As this single chart reveals, global warming is not accelerating, nor is it "irrefutable" - in fact, it clearly shows the disappearance of global warming, despite the huge CO2 emissions since 1970. Additionally, the cyclone/hurricane incidents since 1970 have not increased as predicted, nor has the severity of cyclone/hurricanes increased.
"Anyone who'd like to argue that the world is experiencing a "new normal" with respect to tropical cyclones is simply mistaken. Over the past 4 years, the world is actually in the midst of a very low period in tropical cyclone landfalls -- at least as measured over the past 43 years.....There is even evidence in our paper (see our Figure 2) that the period before 1970 saw more intense hurricane landfalls than the period since."
