Posted on 09/09/2013 7:34:19 PM PDT by NormsRevenge
Man-made climate change contributed to some of 2012's most extreme weather, including the spring and summer heat waves that baked parts of the United States and Hurricane Sandy, which devastated coastal communities along the eastern coast of the country, according to a new report.
The study, which includes research from 18 different teams from around the world, examined 12 extreme weather events from last year and found that human-caused global warming increased the likelihood of half of the incidents, while the others were dictated by natural weather variability.
"We've got some new evidence here that human influence has changed the risk, and has changed it enough that we can detect it," Peter Stott, a climatologist at the United Kingdom Met Office, the U.K.'s national weather service, told reporters in a news briefing on Thursday (Sept. 5). "There's a great deal of variability, [but] nevertheless, we've seen evidence for that increase in risk." [6 Unexpected Effects of Climate Change]
The report, published in the September 2013 issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, attempts to pinpoint the impact of man-made climate change on extreme weather events. But, making these connections is extremely challenging, said Thomas Karl, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Climactic Data Center (NCDC), and chair of the Subcommittee on Global Change Research (part of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, made of up several federal departments and agencies).
"It would be very convenient if we were able to say, 'this event whatever it happens to be had no effect from human contributions,' but the reality, however, is a little messier," Karl said.

Yeah yeah yeah...,my dog predicted the same thing, right before he skooched across the lawn, scratching his butt.
It’s the vicious hurricane season of 2013 that has me worried. That, and the frightful heatwave that swept the country this summer. We’re all gonna die.
OK, if human-caused global warming contributed to the arctic ice melt then 2013 proves that human-caused global warming contributed to the huge ice buildup. If we want more ice, we need more warming!
Or is the effect only one way? /rhetorical
Really? Are people buying this crap anymore? Apparently not in Australia.
The end is here! Grab your rifle, helmet & cans of tune!
Would someone please wake me up when the sky really and truly does finally start falling this time?
So they are saying they can`t pin warming on any one single event, so why should we believe they can pin all events on warming.
They are saying weather caused more weather.
Now it's more correct!!
This crap never gets old - to the people that put it out.
We’ve almost reached 3,000 days since the last cat3+ hurricane made landfall in the US. Its almost mid-September and have yet to have a hurricane in the Atlantic, and only 7 or 8 named storms this season.
The weather is so “angry” its locked itself in its room.
Like Bush, climate change causes everything
THERE IS NO F’N WARMING!!!!
What a pantload of desperation.
This line from the article illustrates it well.
“”Lack of evidence of a role is not evidence of a lack of role,” Nielsen-Gammon told LiveScience.”
A great prosecutor’s line, too. “We don’t have any evidence that he did it, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t do it.”
It looks like “Humberto” may strengthen to hurricane force. ( Finally, an Atlantic Hurricane in 2013! /s ) However, it appears to be going nowhere close to land, and after 72 hours is expected to be “significantly weakened by “quite strong” shear, so, it may barely qualify as a threat to anyone.
The “above average” forecast hurricane season is quite the dud, so far.
Previously, when severe weather occurred opposing “global warming”, it was written of as “weather” - different than global warming..
Now that global warming is “Climate Change”, all severe weather is now due to man-made climate change.
Course, they still haven't been able to figure out how tie in the almost nonexistent hurricane season to “climate change”, but they will.
Move people into areas they only "recently" occupied, add water variability from tides and storms, and you might get wet or worse.
If these Warmists believe their rhetoric, they better never build in flood plains or tide basins.
This is really clever, although I prefer the word "slimy."
There may be 18 different teams, but they are as independent as the East Anglia worldwide network, which got busted big time for manipulating data, losing raw data to make it impossible for their "research" to be validated.
In short this "study" may be many things, but science it ain't!
Sorry, Peter, but you and your ilk are continuing to "cherry pick" so-called evidence to "prove" your preconceived notions of man made global warming. Too many "scientists" have a vested interest in anthropogenic global warming.
What we never get from you are your assumptions, data used, and methodology, in plain English. Your nonsensical findings are being overtaken by climate events. Climate change is caused by the Sun. For you the Sun god, not the Earth god.
...and found that human-caused global warming increased the likelihood of half of the incidents...
You are all liars... you have no proof... one of you capos writes a bullshit article with no research... just referencing another bullshit article written by a compadre with no research in it. You are all liars. We are cooling. Hurricanes have nothing to do with man or anything man does... and why is it that we have the longest hurricane season on record without a named storm? Where are the 21 predicted storms. Why is it that the 73 computer programs that you all worship cannot use past data that we have proof that happened and predict anything that we see today? Because they are nothing but mental masturbation. You will all burn in hell for your lies and corruption.
