Without doubt we have been having more extreme weather in the recent past. If you had been paying attention data instead of “studies” you might have seen that the increased temperatures corresponded with the recent cyclic strong El Nino. During this time, the increases did not correspond to what would be expected based on CO2/GHGs. Clearly there are other sources of heat ( think underwater volcanic activity for triggering the recent El Nino ) which have not been explored. Whether this is a trend, or part of the natural climate changes remains to be seen, but not much can be done unless all possible factors influencing climate change are studied. With regard to NOAA studies, you might be interested in reading this month”s Judicial Watch!
