This is what the ippc had to say about your extreme weather claims:
“Recent analyses in changes in severe local weather (tornadoes, thunder days, lightning and hail) in a few selected regions provide no compelling evidence for widespread systematic long-term changes“. (Source: IPCC, 2001, TAR-02-2, Chapt. 2.7.4., Summary, S.163-164).

Hi Roosje, thanks for your comment. There's a more recent report from the IPCC that shows the link between climate change and for example heat waves, heavy precipitation, increasing cyclone wind speeds and droughts. Here's a link to their fact sheet if you're interested:[…]/srex_fact_sheet.pdf
And here's the full report:[…]/SREX-All_FINAL.pdf
