The growing frequency of wildfires, big storms and floods marks a notable shift for those who have been looking to explain what a warmer planet will look like, writes Justin Worland. “Throughout my time reporting on this beat,” he continues, “I’ve heard the argument over and over that the increase in climate change-linked extreme weather events would drive new recognition of global warming and help alter the political atmosphere. That could still happen. But now that those events are here, it also seems plausible that each one may become just another storm or wildfire in the eyes of the public, a second-tier story in the constant barrage of other news. The challenge for anyone who communicates about climate change to the public—journalists, scientists, activists and elected officials—is to find ways to use each weather event as an opportunity to grow public understanding rather than contribute to a collective tuning out.” Read more, and sign up for TIME’s weekly Climate Is Everything newsletter, at the link in bio.
