Are climate scientists being too cautious when linking extreme weather to climate change?

Climate science has focused on avoiding false alarms when linking extreme events to climate change. But it could learn from how weather forecasters warn the public of hazardous events to include a second key metric: the probability of detection.

NASA shows heaviest rainfall displaced in Typhoon Chan-hom

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Typhoon Chan-hom was still moving parallel to Japan’s east coast as NASA’s satellite rainfall product, that incorporates data from satellites and observations, showed its heaviest rainfall was pushed northeast of center.

NASA finds hurricane delta packing heavy rainfall  

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA’s satellite rainfall product that incorporates data from satellites and observations found that Hurricane Delta was bringing along heavy rainfall as it headed to the US Gulf Coast on Oct. 9.

Scientist maps CO2 emissions for entire US to improve environmental policymaking

With wildfires in the West and hurricanes in the Gulf, the nation is affected by extreme weather-related events resulting from climate change. In response, lawmakers across the country are developing policies to reduce emissions, but the data they have is often inadequate. Scientists have now detailed greenhouse gas emissions across the entire US with details on economic sector, fuel and combustion process.

NASA finds heavy rainfall ringing major Hurricane Maria’s eye

(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Imagine being able to look down at a storm from orbit in space, and provide data that lets scientists calculate the rate in which rain is falling throughout it. That is what a NASA satellite rainfall product does as it incorporates data from satellites and observations. NASA found very heavy rainfall ringing around the compact eye of Major Hurricane Marie.
