EXPLAINING EXTREME EVENTS OF 2016 From A Climate Perspective
Papers from the American Meteorological Society (Dec 2017).

This sixth edition of explaining extreme events of the
previous year (2016) from a climate perspective is the
first of these reports to find that some extreme events
were not possible in a preindustrial climate. The events
were the 2016 record global heat, the heat across Asia,
as well as a marine heat wave off the coast of Alaska.
While these results are novel, they were not unexpected.
Climate attribution scientists have been predicting that
eventually the influence of human-caused climate change
would become sufficiently strong as to push events
beyond the bounds of natural variability alone. It was also
predicted that we would first observe this phenomenon
for heat events where the climate change influence is most
pronounced. Additional retrospective analysis will reveal
if, in fact, these are the first events of their kind or were
simply some of the first to be discovered....

Hurricane Sandy-level flooding is rising so sharply that it could become normal | Environment | The Guardian
The frequency of floods of the magnitude of Hurricane Sandy, which devastated parts of New York City in 2012, is rising so sharply that they could become relatively normal, with a raft of new research laying bare the enormous upheavals already under way in the US due to climate change.
