New research concludes climate change causes weather extremes

A new study shows global warming is already having significant impacts on Earth in the form of more severe weather events, which will just continue to get worse as climate change continues to further rear its ugly head. Scientists published a report in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 27 which outlines how moderate global warming caused by emissions since the Industrial Revolution has already quadrupled the frequency of some heat extremes. According to The New York Times , the report also warns that a failure to control emissions could one day lead to a 62-fold increase in these major heat events. They also noted global warming has driven up the frequency of intense rainstorms by 22 percent since the 19th century–a number that could double in this century if things continue on their current path.
