Further to Tony Thomas’s article, which goes into great depth about how the climate establishment used bully boy tactics to force Springer to retract a paper by Alimonti et al, I am republishing my post from post from last year, summarising their paper:
In terms of rainfall/droughts, there has been a general increase in rainfall globally, but this has not translated into more flooding. Indeed, extra rainfall often tends to alleviate droughts instead:
And the authors conclude that drought is not increasing:
And as I have repeatedly reported, there are no long term trends in hurricane activity:
It is worth noting that the IPCC reviews continue to make the same point about extreme weather, ie that it is difficult to find any evidence that it is on the increase, regardless of cyclical regional changes.
Springer still have the paper online, see here.
