Some climate alarmists would have us believe that these storms are yet another baleful consequence of man-made CO2 emissions. In addition to the latest weather events, they also point to recent cyclones in Burma, last winter's fatal chills in Nepal and Bangladesh, December's blizzards in Britain, and every other drought, typhoon and unseasonable heat wave around the world.

More than 300 people died in the storm, which had an impact on almost half the country's population. The storm racked up more than $6.6 billion in damages and even delayed NASCAR events, so you know it was serious.
