Climate Communication Graphics, Climate Change Metaphors:  
The real doping scandal: Weather on steroids.

Is the increase in extreme weather due to climate change?    This little clip from the National Center from Atmospheric Research (NCAR) provides the clearest — and most entertaining — answer we’ve seen.

For cutting-edge science exploring the links between extreme weather and climate , check out Doping the Atmosphere, and Extreme Weather Forensics.   For a “bite sized” version of the steroids metaphor, see  “Putting the atmosphere on steroids.”

    But what does this have to do with the Superbowl?

    I’ve always appreciated the use of ball throwing imagery when speaking of AGW. I had to explain to my grandkid how CO2 could modify the energy balance and I used the image of thrown baseballs as bits of heat with a pitcher as the lower troposphere and a fielder as lower/upper troposphere.

    He now understands better than most denialists.

  2. Amazing video. I really loved this explanation. I also liked how he mentioned that record low temperatures and snow will not go away with climate change. As a baseball fan, I tip my cap to you for posting this video.
