Human-made climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of severe weather. 2022 continued the trend of recent years being the warmest on record. Extreme heat and water events affected many parts of the globe, with the greatest increases in temperature not where you might expect.

Weather in Russia was OK
Its nothing new, look back to the 60s and you'll see similar patterns of weather .
Plant more trees,use public transport, eat vegetarian food, save water ,save forests, save animal. These are some tips to reverse the climate change.
You people are sick. We have had worse storms and you all are making it into a big thing. Media is our problem.
It's December in south India and feel summer has already started. I'm really scared about real summer now(April-May). Winter this year was negligible at my place this year. Destruction of animal species on earth has begun with the climate change.
5:00 There you go, listen to his answer. We've started feedback loops we almost certainly cannot stop, but we have some idea of what's coming, so that's what we should prepare for and focus our efforts on.
Extreme flood events? We can absolute engineer ourselves out of that. Consequently, what we do there can also mitigate the other side of that equation: Severe droughts, even long multi year ones.
More global rain on average and longer growing seasons will mean more food on less land. Less global wind on average because of the lack of temperature variants between the poles and equator.
Earth was were we are going only 3 million years ago. Since that time, the area I live in was once under thousands of feet of ice & call me self interested, but I'd prefer we not bring back the ice ages.
Some areas will be worse, certainly, but most will be better. The Sahara could turn green once more. Europe could get colder. There really is no universal declaration which can be made about the earth as a whole.
Life will adapt; it always has and always will. New species will emerge as old ones diversify.
To be good stewards, we must be less greedy or we will go extinct and earth will go on without us, largely oblivious that we ever existed in the first place…
So the climate was in a “stable state” when millions of people died annually due to floods and droughts, but we are no longer in a stable state now that deaths from extreme weather events are down more than 90%?
I’ll take unstable any day.
it's already too late teslas, windmills, and solar panels will not save us. Hope is a lie, this is the beginning of the end
the 6th mass extinction is coming
Simplest way to think about climate change is that more energy is added to the system. How much energy? Based on satellite and earth observations the energy added to our shared atmosphere is equivalent to the energy released by detonating five Hiroshima type nukes every single second. That additional energy then is transferred to materials with less energy thereby raising their temperature. Not knowing exactly when we're over the edge of Earth's systems to deal with this energy gives naysayers and cold hearted money lovers room to deceive themselves while working with radical right media to continue it's assault on facts, science.
The start of a new ice age it’s happened before history shows us this clearly this has happened before
GOD protect ya people.
Education and birth control are key to reducing poverty and hunger.
Having child that you can not provide for is cruel and irresponsible.
Population needs to be in balance with jobs, resources, nature and the environment. Having a bigger population in any country than the country can support makes no sense. Access to food, water, shelter, energy and jobs should guide population levels. The worlds population is still expected to add another billion people to feed, clothe and produce pollution. Humans are crowding out all other species of plants and animals.
The cost of dealing with the impact of Climate Change will be much greater than the cost of dealing with the cause.
We must stop adding more fossil fuels to the climate fire. Phase out coal power plants and replace them with wind and solar energy.
Individuals, businesses and governments need to be educated about climate change and how they can reduce fossil fuel use.
I am not sure I understand what you base the claims in this video on? – According to IPCC there is none to little evidence from extreme weathers being correlated to climate change, or even worse caused by climate change. Just read chapter 11 in the latest full IPCC Assessment Report and you will see for yourselves. The only extreme weather where the authors of the IPCC report find satisfactory evidence is for the correlation of increasing mean temperatures and heat waves. The evidence presented for the other types of extreme weathers are contradictory, i.e. weak or no correlations and certainly no causality.
For every extreme heat record you presented in this episode there are several cold records. There has been snow in Karpathian mountains in the middle of the summer for several years in a row (2019, 2020, 2021), in January 2020 there was snow and -2 Celsius in Amman in Saudi Arabia – first time in 150 years, we have seen very early snowfall in Canada (September 2020 and May 2021) and there has been snow falling during summer in Australia in 2021.
Finally a small anecdote: In 1989 James Hansen claimed the NYC West Side Highway would be underwater in 2009. There are still cars driving there.
So, there is no doubt climate is changing – but to make claims about correlation and/or causality between extreme weather and climate change is simply not supported by data.
Climate Change is making weather events more extreme. This will impact the worlds food supply.
Floods, droughts, fires, excessive heat, snow storms and low water levels in reservoirs and in ground water storage are becoming more common. We must stop adding more fossil fuels to the climate fire.
India, China, Brazil, Japan, US, Europe, Indonesia, Canada, Germany and Australia need to do more to reduce use of fossil fuels. They must stop building and financing more coal fossil fuels power plants.
Time to go all in on wind and solar energy and electric vehicles.
Fossil fuels are a bad investment for people and the planet.
Investors are divesting from fossil fuels. ESG investing is growing.
The cost of dealing with the impact of climate change will be greater than the cost of reducing the impact.
The world population is expected to grow by another billion people. Where will the food come from ?
No, Human activity may or may not be causing this- but if you have any actual evidence that it is us, let's see it.
I have a feeling that different weather control systems have a part to play in these changes, not just climate change, but man messing with rainfall etc.
Lol, USA conquering the world and making nonstop proxy wars, while their own people freezing to death.. Plz xD
A bigger snow storm happened millions of years ago … it was called the ice age. was it because of human beings ?
Why didn't you show the drought in Germany? Always talking about India in negative reports. We are ok, focus on the snow bomb.
Everything is definitely linked to CLIMATE CHANGE. Humans caused it, remember? Nobody is innocent.
Well, we all know the Solution to this Problem: More Tax Breaks for the Rich!
Global warming? Oh wait it's freezing. Silly me.
Global warming now called climate change 🤣🤣🤣
Oh yeah. You'd better start to prepare to see more often from here, humans😅
This is bad weather. This is bad governance and poverty. If the Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet, shouldn't the temperature gradient between it and the tropics be reduced, thus reducing extreme weather?
…you are talking nonsense as always
Let's invent another crises. Climate crises, Covid crises, immigrant crises. None of these really exist but you make them up so they serve your woke/wef agenda.
2023 will WORSE than this.
reminds me my country 1990 2000 all you have to do grab shovel and work hard lol
