The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its sixth assessment this week. The 3,000+ page report included a regional breakdown of how the climate has changed already, and the probability human activity has contributed to it.
Four key areas were studied for change:
- Hot extremes
- Cold extremes
- Heavy precipitation
- Agricultural and ecological drought
In some cases, extreme weather events got worse and others they improved.
