Like I've Always Said...

Global warming's influence on extreme weather
"Understanding the cause-and-effect relationship between global warming and record-breaking weather requires asking precisely the right questions. Extreme climate and weather events such as record high temperatures, intense downpours and severe storm surges are becoming more common in many parts of the world. But because high-quality weather records go back only about 100 years, most scientists have been reluctant to say if global warming affected particular extreme events."
