Climate change and weather extremes.


Here I'll just refer to a couple of typically excellent posts from Jeff Master's Wunderblog. The is on temperature records and extremes, and is an especially good response to the bobbleheads on TV who propose that "it's really cold out there in X-ville this winter, so climate change must be a myth."

The second is on the awful Australian wildfires and how they are probably influenced by climate change, and how we're likely to see more of the same.

Of course I've talked a lot here about climate change, weather extremes, and flooding.
