If climate change was actually happening then weather events would be weaker not stronger because the strength is the difference between hot and cold and cold areas should be heating more than hot. Therefore there would be less difference. But the facts are there is NO increase in number or strength of storms throughout the world.

Great work and one small correction, if I may!
Pronunciation of Pakistan: the last four letters are pronounced as '..sthan' even though it is spelt '..stan'.
'Sthan' means place.
Pakistan, Hindustan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and similar others too are pronounced with '../sthan/'!

The president of Ukraine, Russia and the US have no humanity when pushing 100 000 innocent young people from both side to death in war (of which some are due to propaganda to fight for the fatherland , the rest are due to coercion forced to the front)
In addition about 10 000 civilians died from boms and bullets. Let's stop the battle and divide the Donbas into 2 parts , the Russians in Donbas get a half ( because Ukraineans and Russians in Donbass like a couple who divorced and property division is land, house, , factory)

Very sad news ..Hindutva or sanatan dharma which is not started just 2-3 thousand years is dharm na sirf insanonse balki har innocent janwar ped or pure nature ko pyar or respect karna sikhata hai...Ye isko usko kafar kehke neecha dikhana nahi sikhata, ye kehta hai ki sabhi ishwar ke priya hai usane banaye hue hai aur ishwar sabse prem karta hai saman saman, bina bhedbhav ke. Bhagwan ye nahi dekhta ki kon kitne smart tarikese uski puja kar raha hai..wo bass bhav/ innocent prem dekhta hai,,murti puja to pehle har dharma me thi,,,ishwar ko har jagah dekhta the,,,,badme kuch log hoshiyar hokar naye tarike apnaye....kya purane sare log galat the.....ishwar khuda tarike nahi balki saccha nishpap prem dekhta hai...bhakti bas sachi honi chahiye,,..aur kehte hai ki sabse pehla insaan adam tha jab ki scientifically ye proved hai ki insanoki utpatti evolution bandaronse(monkeys)se hui hai..aur adam and eva bandar to nahi the,,,,,Ishwarne sabko banaya..banate waqt usane bhedbhav nahi kiya..sabko do hat do pair ankh diye sukh dudh man apman saman diya fir hum tum kon hote hai hoshiyar isko usko neecha dikhanewale...Geeta shlok says:_ 1)Yo mam pashyati muze har taraf har jagah har disha padartha me dekhta hai aur sabkuch muzme dekhta hai usase mai door nahi aur wo muzse door nahi....2)yaschapi sarva bhutanam bijam:- sare drishya aur adrishya vastuonka main sanatan bij/root hoon, mere siwa yaha koi bhi astitva me nahi ho sakta...aum aum aum..Sanatan dharma me sirf parampita ki upasana nahi to sath sath param maa/ prakriti/ srushti ki bhi upasana aur pooja hai..isiliye ise purna dharma kaha jata hai...Jagadamb Jagadamb..Jai mata di..Isiliye ye dharma kisiko neecha nahi dikhata. Hum to jesus ko bhi mante hai krishna ko bhi mante hai aur khuda ko bhi mante sab usike naam hai, wo har taraf hai, use kahibhi koi rok nahi ho sakti maujud hone me..usake liye koi bhi cheez duniyame dusari nahi ho sakti agar aisa hai to use or us cheez ko bananewala koi tisarahi hota...ishwarne sab kuch sare brahmand apane andarsehi prakat kiye hai banaye hai aur yahi uska vishwaroop hai aum aum. aur wo sirf naam ya smart tarika nahi dekhta pujaneka..sirf innocent saccha pyar bhakti dekhta hai jo usake prati hoti hai.. Wo bass pyar chahta hai.jaise koi baccha apane baap se karta hai maa se karta hai, pram shakti ko har taraf dekho air pujo...quki wo har taraf hai.lakho dishaonme lakho akaronme lakho jagahonme bas usi ko dekhna aur pujna hi uski sachi bhakti hai....Ram bhi wahi Krishna bhi wahi, khuda bhi wahi,, Jesus bhi wahi...ishwar khuda pyar mohabbat hai, darr nahi...Param pita param maa sukhi bhava sukhi hai unhe naman..Jai Bhavani Jay Shivaji.....aum aum om.-..,&.,-

In my opinion the eruption of the Tonga Volcano which was manly a moisture event has created a more than normal seasonal monsoon event. The southwestern part of the United States has also had extreme events. The 3rd biggest explosion ever recorded has to have an effect on weather. This being a moisture event as apposed to an ash event which in the past created years with no summer makes sense to me.
