New IPCC report to include science of attributing extreme events to climate change | WWF

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will include more information on the impact of climate change on extreme weather risk:

“With flooding, hurricanes and other extreme weather causing devastating impacts on people and ecosystems, an important section of the report will be the science of attributing extreme events to a changing climate. “The reports will look at climate impacts already being felt as well as projections as the climate changes in the future. It is global in scope, covering land and ocean from the equator to the Poles. It importantly recognizes nature including looking impacts of climate change on species, ecosystems and biodiversity.”
