Analysis finds no increase in floods or flood damage throughout Europe

"Using a longer time scale than human collective memory, paleoflood studies can put in perspective the occurrences of the extreme floods that hit Europe and other parts of the world during the summer of 2002. And that perspective clearly shows that even greater floods occurred repeatedly during the Little Ice Age, which was the coldest period of the current interglacial."

"In summary, and in spite of climate-alarmist claims to the contrary, there do not appear to have been any increases in either floods or properly-adjusted flood damages throughout all of Europe over the past few decades, which climate alarmists contend was the warmest of the past thousand or more years. In fact, real-world data indicate that in many instances, just the opposite has occurred."
