Our new paper on global heat and rainfall extremes has just been published (open access). It's an update of our earlier work done a decade ago. The extra decade of global warming has greatly increased the number of extreme events. 1/3 nature.com/articles/s41612-0…

For monthly heat extremes, we find that the land area affected by 3-sigma heat has almost doubled, and 4-sigma heat has now newly emerged in the observations, compared to ten years ago. 3-sigma extremes now occur 90 times more often than in the reference period 1951−1980. 2/3

This graph shows the increase in record-breaking daily rainfall events (which can cause flash flooding). Since the 1990s we find a statistically significant increase, which will very likely continue with any further global warming. 3/3

Könnte es sein, dass diese Kurve(n) mit solchen wie dieser hier in einer gewissen Weise korrellieren? de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_…

Oder dieser? Der neue Feudalismus, curtesy of neoclassic. Das kannibalistische Ökonobszön. Es sind ja auch die Top 10% Reichen global und in jedem Staat, die den Löwenanteil der Treibhausgase verursachen, just jene sind die Hauptverursacher, die am meisten vom System profitieren.

My wife's paper on this topic suggests it can be detected. @HayleyJFowler nature.com/articles/s41558-0…

Has anyone studied the affects on taking oil from the earth?
