Man-Induced Weather Extremes?

One of the authors of the UN’s climate change panel’s Special Report Nov 2011 claimed its conclusions serve “as a wake-up call”. Maybe so, but it also reaffirms my message that “science is never done”. The report indicates “low confidence” in attributing any balme for hurricanes, cyclones, and tornadoes, while only “medium confidence” to the higher number of recent “precipatation events” and droughts. I see little mention in reviewing natural events such as the strongly influential warm/cool ocean oscillations,eg. El Nino/La Nina over the last dozen years. More Research please! Give credit to the authors though for stressing the need for future Adaption in varying local extreme weather conditions.
