Climate Change (Extreme Weather Events)

In this article we will discuss Climate Change (Extreme Weather Events-1)

Extreme Weather Events

In addition, most of the ill effects of climate change are linked to extreme weather events, such as hot or cold spells of temperature, or wet or dry spells of rainfall, or cyclones and floods. Predictions of the nature and distributions of such events in a changed climate
are even more uncertain- to the extent that virtually no authoritative predictions exist at all. While there are costs as well as benefits associated with climate change, the scientific consensus is clearly that the overall effects are likely to pose a significant burden on the global community. Unlike many other environmental issues, such as local air or water pollution, or even stratospheric ozone depletion caused by chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), global
warming poses special challenges due to the spatial and temporal extent of the problem covering the globe and with decades to centuries time scales
