A great deal of extreme weather has been seen recently in the forms of a heat wave, drought, hurricane, wildfire, etc.

Most recently, the floods in the Midwest have caused a great deal of alarm, and may happen more often due to global warming.

The report cites that there are now more extreme hot days, and fewer cold days, as well as precipitation which will be less frequent, but more severe.

The report also cited that droughts and hurricanes are expected to become far more common as global warming progresses further, as will the damage to the Arctic Ocean sea ice.

It is clear that unless something is done to prevent emissions of greenhouse gases, this will continue.
