Yesterday evening I watched a special report on Hurricane Sandy on Phoenix public television.

Phoenix invited meteorologist Dr. Karsten Brandt as an expert. Brandt is co-managing director of donnerwetter.de. He was asked by the Phoenix news achorman if we should expect more and bigger storms due to global warming.

I haven’t yet been able to find a clip of that particluar segment, so I have to rely on my memory for his answer.

When asked about the global warming-storm link, Brandt said that by looking back at the global data available over the last decades, there’s “no indication or evidence showing there’s been an increase in storm activity. The data don’t show it.” He added: “Luckily we don’t need to worry much about increasing storms in the future”.

No surprise here. This morning I see at Climate Depot that a number of other experts are also claiming there is no detectable link. But don’t take our word for it. Look at the data yourself:
