  Extreme weather events are the new normal

  Hurricane Harvey highlights the struggle to apply climate science.

  Nature, 29 August 2017

  Hurricane Harvey is already being described as one of the ten costliest storms in US history, with the estimated financial damage put at between US$10 billion and $20 billion. Oil- and gas-industry infrastructure lies among the wreckage, and investors are eyeing the impact on the energy and insurance markets.

  Decisions on where to install, build and develop have always been weather dependent. But they are becoming increasingly so. Extreme weather events such as Harvey can be described as ‘unprecedented’ only so many times before companies and governments are forced to accept that such events are the new normal and to plan accordingly.

  Such plans are more difficult and complicated than the simple broad-brush narrative often cited about the need to adapt to global warming. As we explore in a News story this week, scientists cannot yet supply the kind of detailed, quantified information that companies and others require to best plan for changes coming in the next few years to decades.
