“Recent extreme weather events are likely connected to man-made climate change.”

That was the conclusion government scientists reached in a July, 2012 report issued by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Molina added that even if the scientific evidence continues to fall short of the “absolute certainty measure,” that heat, drought, severe storms and other weather events may prove beneficial in enhancing public awareness.

After exploring the potential far-reaching effects of failure to address climate change, Molina prescribed a plan reminiscent of the Montreal Protocol, an international agreement under which CFCs were phased out in 1996.
