More Conclusive Evidence on Global Warming

  2. 2.  Hayley Ninnis is currently pursuing her psychology degree at Pennsylvania State University. With varied interests including astronomy and vintage book collecting, Hayley Ninnis is also very much concerned about global warming. Global warming, also called climate change, has been a hot topic because it has an adverse effect on the weather and the environment. Despite the evidence, people in the scientific community have been cautious about connecting global warming to extreme weather events. At their level, quantitative facts play a big role in making such connections. Until very recently, the connection between a single event and climate change could not be confidently backed up by supporting data.
  3. 3.  A recent report though by the National Academy of Sciences states that there is now more conclusive evidence that climate change does influence certain extreme weather events. Based on past data and computer modeling, scientists state that the current climate can influence the severity or likelihood of an extreme weather event such as a hurricane or a drought. One scientist states that the report is similar to the discovery that smoking is linked to lung cancer. There is still more work to be done, but this report is good news to those who have long been advocating for measures to curb climate change.
