The study being released today by Munich Re, the world's largest reinsurance firm, sees climate change driving the increase and predicts those influences will continue in years ahead, though a number of experts question that conclusion.

Obvious vested interests at work here.

So the earth is just trying to kill us like ants in the basement? If there's only a few, kill one or two, and move on, but when there's a bunch let's break out the raid and kill it with fire!

My own theory: Greenhouse gasses are trapping more energy within the atmosphere. There is an imbalance of energy between the equator and the poles. Weather systems are nature's way of transporting energy from the equator to the poles. If there is more energy to transport, the storms, by their nature, are going to need to be both more numerous and more violent.


The report finds that weather disasters in North America are among the worst and most volatile in the world: "North America is the continent with the largest increases in disasters," says Munich Re's Peter Hoppe.

Why does God hate the United States?
