It's now possible to link climate change to all kinds of extreme weather, from droughts to flooding to wildfires.
Hurricanes are no exception—scientists have found that warming temperatures are causing stronger and less predictable storms. That's a worry, because hurricanes are already among the most deadly and destructive extreme weather events around the world. In the US alone, three hurricanes each caused over $1 billion in damages in 2022. In a warming world, we can expect the totals to rise.
