This is gross misinformation

The flooding in India is because the government failed to create a modern flood control system, not because of a couple more inches of rain from climate change

Stop blaming poverty, underdevelopment, and bad governance on climate change!

Deaths from natural disasters declined 92% over last century and 80-90% over last 40 years

We've almost eliminated deaths from floods

The "scientist" who tweeted that apparently believes that those floods are due to heavy rainfall rather than the lack of flood control!

Hey @AndrewDessler are you seriously saying that if they had flood control like you have in Texas, they will would have had that flooding?
