Whether people want to believe it or not, scientists are positive that climate change has an immense effect on the planet. After conducting research for the past decade, a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine can estimate the impact of climate change on some extreme events, such as drought, heat waves and heavy precipitation, according to an article by Homeland Security News Wire.

This fairly new science estimates how the power or frequency of an event transformed due to climate change. It helps to better understand climate and weather mechanisms, analytical methods used to analyze certain events, and can provide information to determine things like greenhouse gas emissions targets, according to National Academies. The study also understands the climate and weather mechanisms, and examines how humans influence climate change. Still, more research needs to be done in order to expand its reliability.
