'A work of epic and apocalyptic proportions is soon to dominate your evening viewing...an epic set to regale us with dark tales of coastal cities and islands submerging beneath the waves; of entire species, including mankind, coming under threat; of polar bears without ice floes to play on, whilst they too face extinction.'

Dems tally violent weather in new report to push for climate action: 'It's as if global warming has stacked the deck with extra jokers, making some weather events more frequent and severe and increasing the chances of an event far outside the norm.'

CNBC: "Extreme weather such as hurricanes, flooding, freezing temperatures and wildfires has prompted some to rethink where they will spend their golden years...Another client in Austin suffered from the region’s deep freeze and power outages in February. When pipes froze and their condo flooded, they started to question their long-term plans, McGlothlin said.With the possibility of another cold snap, more home damage or future displacement, they are reconsidering where they are living."
