My question is, what makes this active phase any different than past ones? I mean it's not like we had anything near the level of technology back then like we do today so of course it's going to seem like the number of storms is much higher now than it was back then. To me the climate is always changing and it will continue to change either way over time. I just can't stand how nowadays something happens (tornado, hurricane, blizzard, etc.) and people just blame it on climate change. I could go on but I don't want start a dispute so I'll stop here. It just seems weird how he would just completely flip like that. But who knows, maybe it's just me.
Yeah I agree; I simply think we need more data and empirical studies/evidence to know for sure. Mother Nature will always be several steps ahead of our understanding as it is a highly mysterious and intricate force, and as a result especially with these highly debated and complex topics (climate change in particular), we should definitely present theories and hypotheses with one another, but I'm not sure if we are to the point where we can be 100% confident with everything that is going on.
