Have I got a visual snack for you! But first, let's review:
Weather is not the same as climate. Weather is the actual day-to-day temperature, precipitation, wind, etc. Climate is the average long-term pattern of temperature, precipitation, wind, etc.
Got it? No? If you need more of an explanation (and who doesn't), check out this past Buzz post.
Great job! Now enjoy these amazing photos of extreme weather.
Did you check out the photos I shared with you above?
Get to it!
Alright. Moving on:
While Lane Turner's introduction to the photos makes it clear that a single extreme weather event is not evidence of climate change, she states (without citation) that
"a trend of weather intensity, and oddity, grows."
Turner's continues by asking whether weather is becoming more extreme and, if it is, whether these increasing extreme weather events are evidence of climate change.
Say that 10 times fast... and then post your own answer to Turner's question below.
