Three of four lead editors on the report hailed from NOAA.

A NOAA-led report released September 5 by the Bulletin of the American Meteorology Society – entitled “Explaining Extreme Events of 2012 from a Climate Perspective” – casts a pall on the effects of human influences on extreme weather and climate events.

Three of four lead editors on the report hailed from NOAA, and overall, 18 distinct research teams from across the globe offered their expert opinions as to the causes of 12 extreme events that transpired in the Arctic and on five continents.
