Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Quibble: Since when are projections capable of "proving" a link? A underlying trend in those projections is assumed - not that I have an immediate problem with these what-if assumptions. Except that projections are not evidence for something - although they are useful data points to quantify scientific understanding in hindsight.

Of course I am not dealing with projections at the moment, and I thought I had already made clear in the diary that projected increased losses due to climate change are indeed likely, and that at some point in time there will be consequences. Quantifying these consequences, however, is a topic rife with speculation and assumption.
