Weather can be changeable – hot, cold, usual, unusual.
Climate is measured over years, not days or weeks.
Weird weather is happening in many parts of the World – Russia and Pakistan are both tragic, for somewhat different reasons, but experts believe that we will see more such events over the coming years.
This is because the warming atmosphere and oceans increase the overall energy, which changes the big weather patterns and increases the energy stored in weather systems.
If you learn that climate change is NOT, in fact, happening, check out your source: there are people, mostly backed by vested interests, (such as Exxon), who spread disinformation and successfully cloud the picture and confuse people. See below for some reality.
