This article discusses a study that finds that extreme weather can feel “normal” after just a few years.
While unusual weather patterns have always come and gone, in a changing climate extreme weather events will become more frequent. And this year has already had its fair share of extremes.
But if extreme temperatures arrived in your area, would you even notice?
Often, the answer is no, according to a study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In it, researchers analyzed more than two billion Twitter messages to see how people reacted to weather events.
