The term “extreme weather” is a subterfuge. It is an attempt to blame CO2 for both warming and cooling.

The frequency of intense Atlantic hurricanes has been in decline for 50 years

Gregory F. Fegel

The CO2 alarmists say that increased atmospheric CO2 causes global warming. The CO2 alarmists use of the term “extreme weather” is a subterfuge that attempts to additionally blame CO2 for global cooling. If CO2 could cause both warming and cooling, then there is no way to know if CO2 was causing either. The vague term “extreme weather” provides an opportunity for yet more subterfuge by the CO2 alarmists.

In fact, the frequency of intense Atlantic hurricanes has been in decline for the past 50 years. See these reports:

Downward trends in the frequency of intense Atlantic hurricanes during the past five decades (Geophysical Research Letters, 1996)
https://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/Landsea/downward/

“During the past 5 decades [1951- 2010], an average of 5.6 major hurricanes struck the United States. During the preceding 5 decades [1901-1951], an average of 8.4 major hurricanes struck the United States.”

The decline in hurricanes is caused by global cooling

Seasonally warm temperatures near the Equator cause hurricanes in the Atlantic and cyclones in the Pacific. Therefore, the current 50-year decline in hurricanes and cyclones is caused by global cooling, not by global warming, and certainly not by CO2.
