NOAA climate report, for April 2023:
So the average is 8.3 times $1 billion events a year. So, in the first four months of 2023, the yearly average is almost met.
So the monthly average for these billion dollar events this year is $4.75 billion.
Each $1 billion event isn’t becoming more expensive on average.
The average monthly cost the past 43 years was similar to this year. At about $4.9 billion a month.
Oh to be rich, like the USA.
Poorer countries are not able to adapt so well.
