Trends suggest extreme weather seasons are becoming longer

External News Details

This year's first named hurricane — which happened before the official start of hurricane season for the seventh year in a row — prompted this article about climate change's role in extending extreme weather seasons. Susan Lozier, Professor, Dean and Betsy Middleton and John Clark Sutherland Chair in the College of Sciences, is also the president of the American Geophysical Union, and she includes mentions of California's wildfire season and severe droughts in the West. “We've had extreme events way before we had global warming, but it's just the frequency of them,” Lozier said.
