One of the more interesting youtube channels is the Hawkeyedavis channel, which highlights clearly that extreme weather events, fireballs, landslides, sinkholes, and other natural disasters are without a doubt on the rise. Yes, your local weather might not be affected by the extreme weather events, but globally our planet is in the midst of record breaking weather history.
The question remains, if every category of extremes is record-breaking, where will all of this lead us? Will natural disasters reach a climax? And even though man is being blamed for the increase in climate extremes, its highly unlikely that man is causing the increase in fireball reporting, and magnetic disturbances to the earths magnetic field lines.
