From the New haven Register, an article titled  Scientists: Climate change looks like today’s disasters. A short excerpt:

Is it just freakish weather or something more? Climate scientists suggest that if you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, take a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks.

It includes horrendous wildfires, oppressive heat waves, devastating droughts, flooding from giant deluges and a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.

These are the kinds of extremes experts have predicted will come with climate change, although it’s far too early to say that is the cause. Nor will scientists say global warming is the reason 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June.

The article goes on to point out some fascinating details about the derecho affecting the eastern states presently. and more details are in the articles below.
