Actually, extreme weather events are an excellent example of climate change–that the climate is changing and therefore we see precipitation patterns, temperatures and natural disasters that we’ve never seen before. While each bit of extremely bad weather used to come with the caveat from scientists that no one event can be definitely blamed on global warming, that isn’t being said so much anymore. The overall pattern of more hurricanes, tons of extreme floods and droughts, and more variable temperatures paints a clear picture: global warming is changing our weather.
In fact, while “global warming” is used to refer to the worldwide increases in temperature and their large-scale effects, the term “climate change” specifically refers to these local patterns of variation.
No, it means the opposite. Climate change will bring more extreme weather our way. Colder colds and warmer warms.
Yeah, I agree. I think this is what Thomas Friedman refers to as “global weirding”.
