We have all experienced extreme weather in our lives – storms, extreme rainfall, heatwaves or droughts. In recent years, the question often arises how these events are linked to climate change and whether we are likely to see more of them in the future. This field of research is called “event attribution”. Our briefing paper “How does climate change affect weather” deals with this topic and explains the science behind attributing extreme weather events to climate change.
Caroline Coch, Climate Science Communications Specialist at RMetS speaks to Fredi Otto, acting director of the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford about the paper. Listen to the podcast here:
