With global warming

With global warming, the rise in average temperatures combined with increased temperature variability from weather extremes, have steered the planet to witness a spur of damaging weather-related natural hazards like heat waves, heavy downpour and droughts over the past few years. Hegerl, G. C. et al. (2007) and several others hence denote that this increasingly evident yet truly uncertain connection – between climatic change and the distribution, potency and/or perpetuation of natural disasters – has become a significant domain for scientific study, proving a direct relation with future weather trends however. Mann and Emanuel (2006) examines the direct link between twentieth and twenty-first century growing concentrations of greenhouse-gas with the rising severity of snowfall and precipitation in the north and flood risks in the United Kingdom for instance, drawing out results that anthropogenic elements were key to long?term shifts in warming and tropical cyclone activities in the Atlantic, and that at the least anthropogenic warming has two-folded the plausibility of extremities like the European heat waves of 2003. Further studies released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2013 and Kadave et al. (2016) attribute floods and storm intensity to human-induced climate change. Although undoubtedly humans are altering climatic patterns as observed, the exact magnitude of the attribution necessitates a further rigorous experimentation combining probability theories, weather surveillance and climatic models.
