According to the Global Climate Risk Index between 1990 and 2009 there were nearly 14,000 extreme weather events worldwide, causing more than 650,000 deaths and financial losses exceeding $2.1 trillion. In 2010, in the ten most impacted countries alone more than 60,000 people died and more than $82 billion dollars were lost as a direct consequence of extreme weather. From the "snowpocalypse" in the Northeast U.S. to the floods in Thailand, 2011 was one of the most active and perhaps the most expensive year for extreme weather events. In the United States, extreme weather set a record with 14 events causing over $1 billion in damages.
What has been described as Climate Chaos is quickly becoming the new "normal".
