Climate Change Likely Already Causing More Extreme Weather, IPCC Says

Posted by Soroush 1032 days ago in Hydrology from http://www.treehugger.com

A draft report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, obtained by the AP, says there's a 66% chance that climate change is already causing an increase in extreme weather.

Though the report still says, rightly, that any specific weather event cannot be solely tied to climate change -- be it the totally unseasonable snowfall that hit the Northeast this past weekend, the devastating flooding in Thailand, etc. -- but that scientists now are 99% certain that climate change will cause more extreme heat waves, fewer extreme spells of cold weather, and more intense downpours.
