    This line of argument is rapidly falling by the wayside as more and better research about extreme weather and climate change is forthcoming.

    At the accuweather link for example we read:
    "There is no strong evidence to support severe weather becoming stronger, more frequent or more widespread during the past 50 years in the United States as a result of climate change."

    This statement is just plain wrong.

    And here:

    "New studies, such as Petoukhov et al., (2013), are emerging in the scientific literature that provide additional support for a link between climate change and a wider range of extreme phenomena."
