Quote: More than half of hot extremes due to climate change

by Dr. Erich Fischer, ETH Zürich

… more than half of the hot extremes worldwide...can be attributed to global warming. Not one of these events is solely the direct result of warming, but warming increases their frequency. And the less common and more extreme the hot extreme...the more this can be attributed to a man-made contribution.
