When you do the numbers, climate change means business

A brief look at the BBC’s 2013 Weather Year shows that climate change is not just a clever theory but more a way of life.

Statistically inclined climate change deniers can always say that nothing is certain (rather like how the tobacco companies insisted on saying that the harmfulness of tobacco was never proven).

A more sophisticated analysis might look not just at what level of confidence you can have that a particular weather event is the result of climate change, but given the science of climate change, how the likelihood that it is all just chance is falling ever lower.
