For years, climate scientists have been worried about the impact of climate change on storms. Now we are starting to see the effects:
Global warming puts more energy into storms. This means stronger winds and larger storms. It also means that storms sustain their powerful winds longer as they make their way across water and land. A warmer atmosphere holds more moisture, meaning that storms bring more rainfall.
The intensification of weather and climate extremes will be the most visible impact of global warming in our everyday lives.
