Reports, publications, and data dealing with US weather and climate disasterous events.
NOAA notes that in the last 31 years there were 99 weather-related natural disasters that casued $1 billion worth of damage. So that is a roughly 3 per year (with dollars adjusted for inflation). In 2011, there were 14 natural disasters in the United States that caused over $1 billion in damage.
Is this primarily due to climate change? Are all of components of these natural disaters 'natural?' What does this information say about the human-environmental interactions that we see today?
