IPCC: Humans cause weather extremes

In true IPCC form: conclusion first, report to follow in February 2012.

We can outdo the IPCC and save you time. Here’s the IPCC “Summary for Policymakers“:

Developed nations have wrecked the climate through fossil fuel use. The solution is United Nations-run global governance that will include the redistribution of trillions of dollars from developed to undeveloped nations.

Read the IPCC SREX Summary for Policymakers.

Below is the IPCC overview of the report:

The Special Report for Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX) is a comprehensive assessment of the role of climate change in altering characteristics of extreme events; and of experience with a wide range of options used by institutions, organizations, and communities to reduce exposure and vulnerability, and improve resilience, to climate extremes. SREX was approved and accepted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on 18 November 2011 in Kampala, Uganda. It integrates expertise in climate science, disaster risk management, and adaptation to inform discussions on how to reduce and manage the risks of extreme events and disasters in a changing climate. The report evaluates the role of climate change in altering characteristics of extreme events; and it assesses experience with a wide range of options used by institutions, organizations, and communities to reduce exposure and vulnerability, and improve resilience, to climate extremes.
