Climate change is a fact, and we need to adapt to it. Manmade global warming is evident and there is a question of whether we can say that extreme events are caused by it?
Since 2015 the World Weather Attribution (WWA) initiative has been conducting real-time attribution analysis of extreme weather events as they happen around the world. This provides the public, scientists and decision-makers with the means to make clear connections between greenhouse gas emissions and impactful extreme weather events, such as storms, floods, heatwaves and droughts. Read a detailed description of the methods and links to the peer-reviewed studies developing methods for attribution analysis.
Climate Attribution Database contains 460+ scientific resources organized under 4 thematic umbrellas: Climate Change Attribution, Extreme Event Attribution, Impact Attribution, Source Attribution, to be explored.
There is a compilation of a few articles on this topic:
