It is en­tirely true, as we have as­sessed, that the fre­quency and in­ten­sity of (cli­matic) events will in­crease. I wouldn’t sug­gest that what hap­pened in Pak­istan or what hap­pened in Mum­bai was the re­sult of hu­man in­duced cli­mate change but I cer­tainly would like to em­pha­size the fact that the trend is un­mis­taken. Over a pe­riod of time these events are be­com­ing much more se­vere and much more fre­quent and this will cer­tainly get more pro­nounced in the fu­ture.
