We are creating a new class of extreme weather events, with dire results
The next time someone tells you that we can't tie an individual weather event to climate change, you should tell them that's partly to mostly bullshit. Not only can we say a whole lot about an event's ties to climate change, but some events could not have occurred without global warming's assistance.
Let this sink in for a second.
Global warming is bringing us newly possible extremes, from the 2016 global average surface temperature milestone (it was number one, baby), to a stifling heat wave in Southeast Asia that set numerous all-time high temperature records.
