Pinning Extreme Weather on Climate Change Is Now Routine and Reliable Science [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Research has finally generated the tools to attribute heatwaves and downpours to global warming. [Excerpt] [...] For years, the standard response was that climate change makes such events more likely, but it is hard to pin down the causes of a particular event. That is now changing. [...] extreme-event attribution – the science of calculating how global warming has changed the likelihood and magnitude of extreme heat, cold, drought, rain or flooding – [...] has advanced to the point at which public agencies can take over the task. That's down to progress in modelling, and more-accurate observations. [...]
