What Weather Is the Fault of Climate Change?
From the New York Times: Like politics, weather can be a contentious subject, especially when you throw climate change into the mix.
One view holds that no single storm or drought can be linked to climate change. The other argues that all such things are, in some sense, “caused” by climate change, because we have fundamentally altered the global climate and all the weather in it.
While true, this “all in” philosophy doesn’t adequately emphasize the fact that not all of the extreme weather we experience today has changed significantly. Some of it is just, well, the weather.
