No increase in severe weather

The record shows that there has been no increase in:

– the number of tornadoes
– the number or intensity of hurricanes
– the number of severe floods

as a result of AGW (since the late 20th century warming period cited by IPCC started around 1976).

I have not checked droughts, as the record is a bit sketchy, but it appears clear to me that the physically observed record does not support the IPCC postulation (or Zwiers’ statement) that AGW has caused an incfrease in severe weather events (at least in the USA, for which data are available).
