New paper: Extreme events: The art of attribution
Otto, F.E.L. (2016) Extreme events: The art of attribution, Nature Climate Change 6, 342–343 doi:10.1038/nclimate2971
A high-impact weather event that occurred at the end of a decade of weather extremes led to the emergence of extreme event attribution science. The challenge is now to move on to assessing the actual risks, rather than simply attributing meteorological variables to climate change.
