Extreme weather and a changing climate

Mayfield, Kentucky, USA tornado December 2021

Is there a connection between extreme weather events (torrential rain, polar cold, heatwaves, extended droughts, hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, and more) and a changing climate?


Are extreme weather events happening more frequently?


Are these extreme weather events having a greater impact–-deaths, economic losses, human migration, loss of plant and animal species and even extinction, worsening human physical and mental health, and more.

Yes, again.
