Report Links Extreme Weather to Climate Change

USA Today has obtained a draft of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that confirms with data what many people have been come to believe based on anecdotal evidence: Extreme weather is on the rise, and set to worsen in the coming years, and climate change is to blame.

The broad strokes, as given in an interactive graphic on the USA Today site, are concerning. Reduced precipitation and increased evaporation will likely cause more severe droughts in southern North America, South America, Europe, the Mediterranean, and west Africa. The Pacific islands may see the sea level rise, causing increased erosion, and heavy precipitation events could make flooding more frequent in east Africa. Hurricanes in the Caribbean could become more intense (though not more frequent) and all regions are likely to see rising average temperatures and heat waves.
