Have you seen those threads in which debunkers chime in with statements to the effect that:
"Weather isn't getting worse."
"A lot of the panic and paranoia is because more people are paying attention."
"Information is communicated much more quickly than in the past, and from more remote areas than in the past"
"No. Its just cyclic weather. No doomsday coming any time soon"
Well - They were wrong.
You may wish to review this - the latest information - as it may be used to counter those arguments.*
First: Here is a summary of the findings from the World Meteorological Organization confirming the fact that EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS
ARE IN FACT INCREASING:

the world. The new study found extreme weather events increased from 2001 to 2010 at an alarming rate consistent with global climate change.
Worldwide, this included an increase in floods by 63%, drought 43%, heat waves 43%, heavy rain 43%, fires 25%, and tropical cyclones
