Subject Index Summary
Weather Extremes (Hail): Climate alarmists contend that various types of extreme weather events become both more frequent and more extreme as the world warms; and in this regard, hail is one of the extreme weather phenomena they believe will wreak havoc on society in the future. But have hail events gotten any worse over the period of time during which climate alarmists claim the planet's mean surface air temperature rose at a rate and to a level that was unprecedented over the past one to two millennia?
