I see that not one of your references addresses the facts pointed out by Forbes. Rather than a shotgun response, can you counter the evidence cited that disproves the claim that climate events are getting more frequent and severe? 

it’s a fair topic for NANOG. The idea that countervailing evidence cannot be tolerated is the domain of religion, not science. Science accepts, and in fact encourages, such evidence.
