The National Centers for Environmental Information, a federal agency, estimates that the number of billion dollar weather and climate disasters taking place in the U.S. each year has skyrocketed to an average of 20 in the last two years, including winter storm/cold waves, droughts/heat waves, wildfires, tornadoes and tropical cyclones. In the 1980s, there were only about three per year.
