Daniel Swain in The Guardian: ‘Extraordinary is no longer extraordinary’: US scientists on a year of climate disasters
UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain wrote for The Guardian: The last few years featured some really prominent global climate and weather extremes. And this year, in particular, kind of puts an exclamation point on that. The magnitude and frequency of what happened over the past 12 months or so is pretty remarkable. The extraordinary and unprecedented is no longer extraordinary or unprecedented because it’s starting to happen so often.
