Why is every weather pattern these days blamed on global warming?

Home More advice Environmental Issues

Although global warming is happening, not every region of the planet is experiencing it. Weather patterns are, and always have been, mostly regional.

So why is it that every storm, every tornado, every hurricane, at least SEEMS to be affiliated somehow with global warming, especially in the media? This winter has been longer, colder, and wetter than the past few years in several northern latitude countries, and this too somehow gets blamed on global warming even though it's got nothing to do with it.

The science of global warming speaks for itself. Are we so worried about convincing people it's real that we're just going to start making up reasons why every weather peculiarity is brought on by it?
