Climatologist Dr. John Christy responded to Climate Depot: "I wonder how they explain this over the past 100 years in the US?"
Christy: "The claim about Miami-Dade's rising number of hot days is dependent on starting in the 1960s (a favorite ploy of Climate Central) and picking a place that has had huge urbanization since then. But in the last 10 decades, there is just no story about the background climate even with Florida's stupendous growth near a number of these USHCN stations."
Extreme Weather Expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: For hydrological drought the IPCC is also quite strong in its conclusions: "Low confidence: Weak or insignificant trends"
In Western and Central Europe — basically Atlantic France all the way to Moscow, north of the Mediterranean region and south of the North Sea region — the IPCC and the underlying peer reviewed research on which it assesses has concluded that drought has not increased and, logically, that increased drought cannot be attributed to human-caused climate change.
