Rebuildable.
.
It remains to be seen if any aspects of mining, concrete, refining, manufacturing, installation, or even rebuilding what is there every 15 years of giant wind turbines can be accomplished after liquid fuel starts to become remote in 30 years.

It's impossible to tell how much of the damage was due to global warming, as warming isn't 100% responsible for weather damage. Perhaps severity and/or frequency increases with warming, but even freak storms exist regardless of warming.

Are there any estimates of how much more powerful storms are compared with, say, 1900 levels of CO2 and temperature?
We know that there is about 4-5% more evaporation, and this leads to more heavy precipitation events. Around the world, there have been record setting events.

It used to be that 1/2" rain in an hour was a lot of rain. Now, we see 4", 5" or more per hour. A foot of rain in a few hours, are becoming fairly common - in virtually any place on earth.

An ice age? That will not happen any time soon.

We are sitting now with carbon dioxide at about 410ppm - which we have not had in about 15 Million years.

And, we are adding methane, and even worse, nitrous oxide - and the tundra is melting, which is adding huge amounts of carbon dioxide and methane.

When the ocean gets too warm, it will release the carbon dioxide it has been absorbing.

We had the hottest April ever. As I wrote before, 10 days ago some of us slept outside on just a mattress, no tent, not even in a sleeping bag. Mid April.

It is unnaturally cold here in Arizona.

You guys do realize that it is often hotter than normal in one place and colder than normal in another, right?

Has been a little unseasonably warm here in the PNW. Very mild winter.

It was an unusually cold winter in pretty much the entire USA... a long cold winter.

One more thing... If climate change is such an issue, drop the speed limits globally. This will decrease fuel consumption considerably. For some reason governments aren't pushing this, but they know it is the one thing that can be done to drop CO2 output... one of many reasons I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid.
