Greg Carmichael (Professor of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the University of Iowa and co-director of the Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research) and Donald Wuebbles (Professor of Atmospheric Sciences and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois) have co-authored a new column on climate change.

Specifically, this column discusses how there is a strong probability that extreme weather events – including ones seen this year – are linked to climate change.

The column concludes with a series of tips for reducing humans’ impact on climate, including an increased focus on renewable energy and fuel-efficient transportation.
