Wild Weather: Global Warming
|New England, USA (by By LESLIE YERANSIAN) - Four days of rain and the worst flooding in 70 years in parts of New England gives new evidence to those who say weather around the world has become more extreme.|
The debate continues over whether the wild weather we're experiencing is connected to global warming, and there are many naysayers who argue that you can't connect any of the incidents of strange weather to global warming.
Will Al Gore starring in his own movie about global warming be able to change people's minds, to get people thinking that all this weather is an "inconvenient truth"? Well, for all those who argue against the notion of global warming, just how normal does this sound?
This is just a sample of the extreme weather our globe has experienced over the past few years:
"It's random, and nowadays with all the technology, we have things that have always been happening to us are becoming more apparent because we're filming it," said Henry Margusity, a meteorologist with Accuweather. "If you had the same kind of footage of Hurricane Camille back in 1969, people would say Katrina was just like Camille."
