Extreme Weather Events

Introduction

A recent research report by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) covers 27 peer-reviewed analyses of extreme weather events around the globe. The influence of anthropogenic climate change was sufficient to warrant the conclusion in at least three of the reports, that the severity of the event would never have been possible without human-caused global warming. This is the first report of this kind by the AMS that came to such unequivocal conclusions.


The report, "Explaining Extreme Events of 2016 from a Climate Perspective" is available for download at the AMS website.
