How Global Warming Fueled Five Extreme Weather Events

This article discusses the linkage between 2017 extreme weather events and global warming. Here is a quote:

In a new collection of papers published Wednesday in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, researchers around the world analyzed 27 extreme weather events from 2016 and found that human-caused climate change was a “significant driver” for 21 of them. The effort is part of the growing field of climate change attribution, which explores connections between warming and weather events that have already happened.”
