John, so many points, so little space.
First, if you want to quote me in your Sunday blow off, please get it right. You did not include my next paragraph that said
“All of these factors can lead to more severe storms and more coastal flooding. Events that were "100 year floods/droughts" will occur more often. Storm surges that had no effects before will now be more likely to cause flooding.”
I know you like simple connections, unfortunately, science doesn’t work that way. Instead it deals with likelihood and increased probabilities. You suggest that Goldberg believes that hurricanes have not increased in number or strength...
