Climate Change And Extreme Weather

Does climate change have anything to do with the strange weather we have been experiecing lately?

"It seems very clear that the sort of weather that you are seeing in California ties in with the predictions made by climate scientists for what would happen under a climate change scenario. No one can put their hand on their heart saying -- and say that any one weather event is -- is we know the result of climate change. What we can say is that weather events like this are in line with the predictions made by climate scientists for what would happen when climate change begins to accelerate."
