Bullshit or not, we need to urgently address our treatment of the planet. People need to stop consuming and start contributing - grow a garden would be a good start, cut back on meat and plastics consumption...etc

I'm quotiong from Roger Pielke Sr.'s blog... and his "bullshit button":
A few quotable quotes from the (IPCC Special Report on Extremes) report (from Chapter 4):
"There is medium evidence and high agreement that long-term trends in normalized losses have not been attributed to natural or anthropogenic climate change"
"The statement about the absence of trends in impacts attributable to natural or anthropogenic climate change holds for tropical and extratropical storms and tornados"
"The absence of an attributable climate change signal in losses also holds for flood losses"
With this post I am creating a handy bullshit button on this subject (pictured above). Anytime that you read claims that invoke disasters loss trends as an indication of human-caused climate change, including the currently popular "billion dollar disasters" meme, you can simply call "bullshit" and point to the IPCC SREX report
