There is no question that extreme (weather and planetary) events and damages have been increasing: http://ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=107297. However, do know that scientifically, there is huge evidence to show clearly that carbon emissions is not the main driver of climate change. Bigger forces – like the solar cycle, shifting magnetics on Earth, large-scale / decadal cycles in ocean patterns, and many more factors are largely responsible for increasing extremes … not to forget that weather-cost impacts are rising also because construction and populations are increasing at the global coastlines.
