The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports are the scientific source of claims for more severe and extreme weather. In fact the incidence and severity of extreme weather hurricanes, wind storms, tornados, heat waves, drought, floods, ice storms, etchave not generally increased recently and are well within long term natural variability.
IPCC are also wrong because in their models the data on which they are built is insufficient, the basic physics incorrect, and major mechanisms are inadequate or missing. But dont take my word for it as the IPCC dont hide their limitations. Instead they know people, especially the media, dont read or understand the Science Report. They, cynically produce a Summary for Policymakers (SPM) written with a certainty completely unjustified by the Science Report.
The IPCC claim that polar temperatures will increase more than tropical with warming. This reduces the temperature contrast across the Polar Front, the main boundary between polar and tropical air. Frequency and intensity of all middle latitude (30-65°) severe weather is a function of this temperature contrast and including intense low pressure systems and tornadoes. It is evident in North America along what is called Tornado Alley. Reduce that contrast, traditionally called the Zonal Index, and severe weather potential is decreased.

When man was driven from the Garden of Eden, I don’t think he was riding behind a V-8.
Pretty sure there were storms before the internal combustion engine.
What matters is the image of us going off the edge of the earth I mean global warming.
