Nobel Prize-winning global warming alarmist Thomas Schelling told the Atlantic in a 2009 interview, “I sometimes wish that we could have, over the next five or ten years, a lot of horrid things happening — you know, like tornadoes in the Midwest and so forth — that would get people very concerned about climate change.”

In addition to hoping for human catastrophes that can be falsely linked to global warming, Schelling said alarmists probably “have to find ways to exaggerate the threat” of global warming to get people to listen to their predictions.

Marc Morano, who produces the Climate Depot website, published an interesting editorial on the subject.
