Major US climate disasters occur every three weeks, report finds Fifth National Climate Assessment says nowhere is safe

‘Unprecedented’: That’s how an assessment, released by the administration of President Joe Biden, describes the toll that climate change is taking on the United States. Extreme weather events caused by global warming cost the country around US$150 billion in direct damages each year, says the climate report, released on 14 November. From 2018 to 2022, the United States experienced 89 climate disasters that each cost at least $1 billion in damages. That equates to one every three weeks, as compared with one every four months in the 1980s.
