In the paper from E&E 2010, I have surveyed the cold weather extremes as reported in various TV and news media and also from various weather & climate data archives. My preliminary assessment strongly suggests increasing frequency of cold weather extrems world-wide in the last five years or more. The increasing occurrences of cold weather extremes seem to contradict the AGW hypothesis and IPCC 2007 Climate Change Documents which project ‘increasing Warm weather extremes in future’. There is an urgent need to improve our database on weather extrems, warm & cold and to assess these events in the context of present climate change debate. The climate science community has over-emphasized calculation of regional and global temperature trend and their possible linkage to human-added carbon dioxide, while ignoring analysis of weather extremes and their mechanics and dynamics.
Are cold weather extremes impacting human societies worse than warm weather extremes? There is a need to do more research on this important socio-economic issue.
