There is increasing evidence that human-induced climate change, global warming, is changing the precipitation and the hydrological cycles, especially the extremes. In this article, we discuss the conceptual basis for understanding changes Climate Change: Evidence, Impacts, and Choices is intended to help people understand what is known about climate change. First, it lays out the evidence that human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels, are responsible for much of the warming and related changes being observed around the world original Climate Change: Evidence and Causes in 2014.
