The language the IPCC used in presenting it is torqued up a little bit, appropriately.
The man-made global warming pollution accumulates in the atmosphere, and it stays there a pretty long time.
And it now traps as much extra heat energy every day as would be released by 500,000 Hiroshima-class atomic bombs exploding every day.
And more than 90 percent of that extra heat energy is going into the oceans.
And that's distorting and disrupting the water cycle by evaporating much more moisture into these storms.
And even without hurricanes, we get these so-called rain bombs that just devastate the places where it falls.
And you use a phrase like that, and some people immediately say, OK, calm down, that it can't be that bad. »
