    Climate Change Causing Extreme Weather

    Not that this should come as a surprise, but I am sure it will be denied.

    Climate change is not only influencing extreme weather events, it's causing them

    Extreme weather events that spanned the globe in 2017 have been directly linked to -- and in some cases were even caused by -- continued warming of the planet via human influence through greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new report.

    For the second year in a row, the annual report from the American Meteorological Society found weather extremes that could not have happened without human-caused warming of the climate.
    Second year in a row...so, that state of denial must be getting harder and harder to maintain.
    If you want something bad enough, just take it.

    Of course it will. Because everyone here has the same level of expertise as people who literally base their careers around researching climate science. /s

    Don't think I have ever met anyone who denies the climate changes.

    Why are you telling me what not to think? And, I could not care less who you ever met.

    There are a few. But more important is whether they accept climate science.

    Weather is not climate.

    No one here said it was. The op did say climate change causes extreme weather, however.

    Look here buddy, every time climate skeptics use cold weather to prove global warming is false, you Lefties use the "weather isnt climate defence".
    But then when suddenly an extreme weather event happens, you dont hesitate to point to that as proof of climate change.

    You can't have it both ways, sorry
