The article starts with the text

And it is certain to predict that costs due to extreme weather will rise and some areas of the world will become more perilous places to live.”

The historic snowstorm in the northeast United States a few days ago was due to an unusually far south Polar jet stream for this time of the year, and colder than average temperatures associated with the east coast storm.  To claim that this event fits with the IPCC climate change predictions is ridiculous. The article reads as an op-ed in the guise of a news article.
