Scientists Link Climatic Change to Global Warming

Noticing current weather conditions in the US and seeing early arrival of heat waves, a group of scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, in Germany, felt the need to find the reason and concluded that it was something related to global warming.

As per the study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, it could not be simply said that the extremes in climate being faced currently is the result of global warming. But, there are possibilities that these are somehow linked to the same.

The team of scientists had carried out a survey which led it to discover a pattern in the large series of extreme weather events. It is thus being taken as evidence by the team that extreme rainfall and heat waves can be the consequence of global warming in some way or the other.

While elementary physical principles have already showed, as per previous studies, that warming in the climate can cause extremes in weather. The team, therefore, based its latest study on three pillars, including statistical analysis, basic physics and computer simulations, says the report.

It was then concluded by the team that statistical trends are generally found in temperature and precipitation data. Also, they told that it could be because warm air contains moisture unless it rains. And a third pillar led them to suggest that there was a direct link between warming and records in precipitation as well as temperature.

The analysis also helped them to discover that global warming can sometimes be the cause of record-breaking events too. “These are complex processes that we are investigating further. But now these processes unfold against the background of climatic warming. That can turn an extreme event into a record-breaking event”, said Stefan Rahmstorf, chair of the Earth System Analysis department.
