Heatwaves & Global Warming

article's image

As Europe and North America bake this summer (21 people recently died in France), many are connecting the hotter weather to global warming. NASA reported that 2005 was the warmest globally in over a century-- and the first half of 2006 is setting records as well. Higher temperatures are also associated with an increase in turbulent weather such as thunderstorms and tornadoes. For more, see coverage from McClatchy(1) and Reuters(2).
