Climate change causes more severe weather

Call it “Snowpocalypse” or “Snowageddon,” the mid-Atlantic and Northwestern U.S. have seen winter storms this year that rival anything in decades. Scientists agree that this kind of extreme weather is consistent with climate change research.
Arm yourself with facts and join Repower America in sharing the truth about climate change and extreme weather:

Fact: Climate change causes more frequent and severe snowstorms

Record snowstorms need two things: temperatures below freezing, and very high humidity. On a planet warmer by a few degrees on average, the Northeast US will still have plenty of days below freezing; the big difference will be warmer seas producing higher levels of moisture in the air — and therefore more severe cold-season storms.1

Fact: We can expect more extreme weather

Scientists tell us that climate change has already led to more extreme weather in the United States and we can expect stronger hurricanes, more wildfires, heatwaves and droughts, to name a few.2 The cost of inaction could reach half a trillion dollars a year.3

Fact: The world is warming at a quickening pace

Weather in one region over days or months should not be confused with climate or the patterns of weather over decades and centuries. And the science is clear here: the last decade was the hottest on record.4 And to put this year’s weather in perspective, January was warmer than average for the continental United States.5
Share this page and spread the truth about climate change and extreme weather:
“Global warming theory predicts that global precipitation will increase, and that heavy precipitation events… will also increase. This occurs because as the climate warms, evaporation of moisture from the oceans increases, resulting in more water vapor in the air.” – Jeff Masters, meteorologist

SONGLINES

“Are the Humpback Whales trying to communicate with us? I think so, and when you watch this film, you too will become a believer.

You will witness some of the most incredible Whale and Dolphin encounters ever caught on film. In Hervey Bay, Australia we are watching an extraordinary coming together of two highly intelligent creatures: Whales and Humans! My hosts are two very special friends: Trish and Wally Franklin, founders of The Oceania Project – an organisation dedicated to raising awareness about Whales and Dolphins through research and education programs.
Together we will show you why Hervey Bay has become the world’s most popular Whale Watching location - a special meeting place between Humpbacks and Humans.
Witness giant Humpback Whales reaching out to touch people and showering them with water. Be there, as young Whales are fed and nurtured, before leaping into the atmosphere for the first time.
You'll meet the enigmatic Whale Marbles, Speckles and his curious pod, Bonnie & Clyde the dancing Whales, and Roxanne - the most amorous Whale of them all! So get ready as you too are lifted up by the Angels of the Sea. Oh, and I almost forgot! Just wait until you see the Dolphins!”
Darren McDonald
