Channel 4's Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked former UN chief Figueres: "Is there any sense that this could be self-controlling -- that as we see economic growth possibly slowing down around the world, because of coronavirus -- that's actually good for the climate?"
Christiana Figueres replied: "Well, that is, ironically, of course, the other side of this -- right? It may be good for climate. But I think -- because there is less trade, there's less travel, there's less commerce."
Weaponizing Coronavirus: Figueres also said: Expect more disease outbreaks ‘if we continue to deny, delude and delay on climate change’
Stop the confusion! Global warming will cause less hurricanes or more hurricanes or more powerful but less frequent hurricanes or have no known impact on hurricanes and will cause less rain or more rain. In other words, predict every possible outcome and you too can claim you predicted it! No matter what happens with hurricanes, the climate establishment can confidently claim, they were right.

"The probability of a 100-year flood event is now so rare it has only been occurring once every 358 years on average since 1970." ...
"In present-day conditions, 100-year flood events have globally become so rare that they now (since 1970) only occur once every 358 years on average. And 50-year floods only occur once every 152 years on average.
With the cooler climate conditions of the 1970s, there was a 45% probability that a 50-year flood would occur. In today’s conditions, however, there is only an 18% chance that a 50-year flood will occur."
