The difference between weather and climate is a change in the probabilities.
Under one set of climatic conditions the probability of a storm of a certain severity might be 5 times in 100 years. Under different climatic conditions 20 times in 100 years. But there would also be changes in other probabilities like record hot springs and summers.
The bad thing is if that if the rise in CO2 is triggering this then not in hundreds of thousands of years has CO2 risen so fast. We are in a new experimental climate that has never before existed on the planet. And we have 7 billion people to feed. How many bad summers can we take?

The Laws of Physics do not care how many people starve.
