Deluge and Changing Precipitation

In some parts of the world, the frequency and intensity of heavy-rain events will increase with the temperature, while elsewhere precipitation will lessen. Climate change is exacerbating the extremes.

Droughts and Heatwaves

Droughts and heatwaves are increasing as the temperature increases. This can lead to economic downturn, unhealthy living, and even conflict.

Hurricanes and Tropical Storms

Hurricanes and tropical storms are increasing in frequency and intensity due to climate change, costing the U.S. alone billions of dollars per event.

Wildfires

As forests dry up and snowmelt is earlier, wildfires spread more quickly and more dangerously, costing billions of dollars, destroying livelihoods, and threatening ecosystems.
