Interview: World to see more extreme weather due to climate change: U.S. expert - Xinhua | English.news.cn
One fundamental cause of this round of heat waves is climate change, Prof. Ronald L. Sass with Rice University told Xinhua in a recent interview.

"The weather has been changing since about 1850s, but it has been changing very slowly. By 1980 or 1990, we began to see an accelerating effect of the climate change. The accelerating effect keeps accelerating, so the climate change is becoming more and more rapid," Sass said.

I’m pretty comfortable with what science tells us about climate change. To me, there’s a cumulative body of evidence that rises to the level of concern. But I also realize there is legitimate debate over how worried we should be and more critically, over how to go about reducing our carbon emissions.
