Finally, the reason that matters to me as a father, the weather and degree of storms isn't any worse now than expected without AGW. Every time a newsworthy storm hits, we receive a second storm of talking heads telling us it's from AGW. It's as if we didn't have storms before we flipped on a light switch.
Again, it comes down to sample sizes and understanding you can't isolate one extreme and rare storm and reasonably draw conclusions from it. In a nutshell, the sky certainly isn't falling, and violent tornadoes, snow fall, Tropical Storms, and hurricanes are not increasing in frequency or intensity during the long-term average.(ANR), Walter Energy (WLT), Arch Coal (ACI), Peabody Energy (BTU) and James River Coal (JRCC). Other winners include power companies that sell electric power including Xcel Energy (XEL), Duke Energy (DUK), Southern Company (SO), American Electric Power (AEP).
Finally, companies that consume large amounts of electricity relative to their revenue and income include Alcoa (AA), Amazon (AMZN) and indirectly through Amazon, Netflix (NFLX).
