Been watching the news about Colorado?
I wonder when they will be convinced that such things are 'just a tad unusual' for the old stable climate.
This is a big favor for the denialists, but they fail to appreciate it. It is a qualification the scientists have to concede, since it is mostly NOT possible to say for sure whether an event is part of climate change or not. However, the evidence is building.
Past performance is not an indicator of future events.
Your mileage may vary.
All they can say is that events like this will become more common as the planet warms. As we get more events like this, we can be more certain that the climate is changing.
But there are other things that ARE certain.
