Two Important Papers February 26, 2011 : 4:15 PM

Joe Romm at Climate Progress reported on two important new papers from the journal Nature that join the "growing body of evidence that human emissions fuel extreme weather, flooding that harm humans and the environment.”

According to Joe:

“Scientists have predicted for decades that human-caused global warming would increased extreme weather events that cause severe harm to humans, property, and the environment. These two studies are but the latest in a growing body of scientific literature demonstrating that these predictions are coming true now.”

“They should help lay to rest the myth that human-caused global warming will contribute to grievous harm only in some far-off future. They also strongly support the view that the human-induced increases in greenhouse gases have contributed to the devastating extreme events that hit Australia and other parts of the world in the past several months, helping to drive up food prices.”
