Whenever extreme weather hits the news, we hear claims that such weather is triggered by human-influenced climate change. So is severe weather really our fault?
Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration did a combined analysis of over a dozen extreme weather events. They found that human-influenced climate change does not directly cause severe weather events, but it does make those events more damaging than they would naturally have been.
So could we reduce the destructive effects of severe weather by making lifestyle changes? Worth a try, I guess.
