Where's the source? Where are the data point citations? Hell, where'd this thing even come from?

Doesn't matter. We are due for a major meteor strike anytime now.

Andrew & Artmunki:
You said just what I wanted to say, but probably more comprehensively and succinctly. Thumbs up!

I'm not a climate change denier by any means, but this has to be analyzed critically rather than just immediately praised. Firstly, the sample size is clearly too small. Secondly, it's easily possible that what constitutes an "event" has changed. That's not a ridiculous notion.

The "Climatological" category is the one that catches my attention the most. It leads you to believe that there were practically no fires or droughts before the 90's and then suddenly they're e'rywhere. That's not true. Half of the entire state of Florida used to be on fire during Summer before whitey came.

Also, spoken from a man who took a forest class in college, WILD FIRES ARE HEALTHY. THEY ARE NECESSARY. THEY ARE ON THE INCREASE BECAUSE OF HUMAN FIRE SUPPRESSION AND NO OTHER REASON. PINE FORESTS CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT FIRE. THE END.

I'm always quick to point out the fallacies in climate-change deniers more obviously delusional claims, but the time period in this graph does seem very short to be of much use in discussions of climate change. We've been collecting this sort of data for much longer than 30 years, so it does kinda make me wonder why they chose this time period.
Still, I think it's interesting to note that the geophysical disaster rate (something we can't really have any effect on) has remained far more stable than the disaster-types attributed to climate change, so it's pretty safe to say the climate is definitely changing. But the time period presented in this graph is far too short to give any suggestion whatsoever of *why* the change is happening.

The chart for Germany starts in 1970

That's good sample. Thirty years of data on something that is 4 billion years old.

This was all foretold.. might want to read up on it and prepare yourself

I know, but Frodo proved Galdriel's mirror only showed a possible future, which he defeated by destroying the One Ring at Mount Doom.

I like how the data shows only recent history to fit the current agenda

""ok" but it's because of something else..."

YES. Gay marriage. It is pretty clear to us rational people that the hurricanes are because of gay marriage.

When a homo puts his privates in another homo it makes the baby jesus cry. When baby jesus's tears fall into the ocean they cause a vortex of swirling wind and water. Then those vortex's head for the nearest concentration of Jews and Sodomites which is either Florida or New York.

You don't see hurricanes hitting North Dakota or Iowa do you? NO! because those states are full of good Christians.

I don't like how they stacked everything on this graph. they may of been more storms but less earthquakes but the bar is bigger cause they stack everything.

If course it does. All independent scientists agree. Even the whole UN- climate panel has been saying it for years.

A few corrupt people with degrees backed up with billions of oil- company money can't stop that.

I the 90's they said that the climate wasn't changing. In the 2000's they said "ok" but it's because of something else...

NO

Data has a well known liberal bias.

A 400% increase in 30 years is just mother nature's natural cycle right?
