ABSTRACT
This article reports on a connection between global warming and extreme weather including droughts, floods, and hurricanes. It is stated that climatologists have linked global warming to rising temperatures and subsequently weather changes, swayed by studies that have identified greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2), as the leading cause of rising mercury in the atmosphere.
