Promo image for the course Climate Change and Extreme Weather
This module discusses how a changing climate can lead to changes in extreme weather events on the local scale. The role of natural variability is also explained. The module describes how climate change can have both positive and negative effects, depending on the situation, location, and the vulnerability of the population. While research on the relationships between climate change and extreme events is still relatively new, the module discusses what changes scientists think are likely to happen if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise.
