I'm having a bit of trouble with the "consistent With Chronicles" as defined at Dr. Pielke Jr's place
The short version is now global warming has begun to accelerate (or not--I read an article it was "taking a break" till 2015) thus everything that happens in the weather is now consistent with the consequences of global warming, event the Midwest floods even though it was patently obvious in March that there'd be widespread flooding on the Mississippi and its tributaries due to the amount of snow and rain that fell there this winter and spring.
that and the misunderstanding as to what 100-year flood and 500-year flood means (they're probabilities, not statistical recurrence times.)
Sometimes a flood is just a flood. Although the White House said we could connect global warming to it...
i dunno we'll just have to see. /ramble
