Record Heat And Derecho Storms. Is It Climate Change?
It’s a broken record, literally and figuratively.
We know that climate change cannot be blamed for any single extreme weather event but we also know that extreme weather events are increasingly likely due to climate change.
There will be a point in the future where we look back at this “debate” with both amusement and horror.
From USA Today:
So what’s up with the U.S. weather this year, a warm winter, early droughts and a multistate “derecho” windstorm before July.
Is global warming cooking our goose with extreme weather events, or not?
It’s complicated, but some climate scientists argue that stifling heat waves, drought and even June’s derecho all come out of the global warming playbook.
