A new study has drawn together more evidence to suggest that extreme weather patterns are a result of human-induced climate change. Researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Britain’s National Weather Service have come to the conclusion that the temperature in Britain last Novembe was 60 times more likely to occur due to climate change rather than Earth’s weather patterns. Last November was the second-hottest November in the UK since they started keeping records of the weather in 1659. In addition, climate change was the only factor that explains the intensity and abnormally long duration of the 2011 Texas heat wave; however, researchers have maintained that they cannot draw a connection between every extreme weather occurrence and climate change. Nevertheless, Peter Stott, head of Climate Monitoring and Attribution at the Britain’s National Weather Service, stated that this study points at “a stronger and stronger picture of human influence on the climate.” [UPI]
