+Noah Diffenbaugh I would like to apologize, my internet connection is too bad, and the Hangout was lagging a lot. I am opening my spot to someone else! Please, post the viedo after the Hangout!

Will be watching the live stream though.
 
Thank you Noah. I look forward to more concentrated discussions on specific topics with you.
 
Please let us know when you upload the video! I'd like to share it with my circles.
 
That's what I suspected. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
 
+Noah Diffenbaugh here's something specific that I would like to ask you to consider for a future hangout. The new IPCC report on extreme weather is very equivocal in the four paragraphs it devotes to economic effects, but international reinsurers +Munich Re are extremely plainspoken about them:

"... facts show that global warming is playing a significant role in the rising number of extreme events. Analyses performed by Munich Re’s natural catastrophe database, the most comprehensive in the world, substantiate this increase: the number of extreme weather events like windstorm and floods has tripled since 1980, and the trend is expected to persist." -- munichre.com/en/media_relations/company_news/2010/2010-08-05_company_news.aspx

My question is, if we believe Munich Re in that the economic damage from extreme weather is tripling every 30 years, at what point does that become so much of a burden that it is likely to disrupt the world economy?
