We have experienced a lot of destructive extreme weather events in 2011. If you want to know what scientists are telling us about the connection between climate change and extreme weather I'd encourage you to take a look at the graphic below. We put it to together to visualize the report the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently issued about extreme weather and climate change. But the bottom line is: Climate change will lead to higher temperatures, heavier precipitation, intensified drought and stronger storms. And the more we pollute, the worse things will get. Climate change is a problem we are facing right now, and it affects the weather we see every day. The next time someone asks you what climate change is, try using this graphic as a handy visual guide. And be sure to share this with your friends and others who are curious about extreme weather events. We will continue to update this graphic as new information becomes available.
