Climate Change Effects on Natural Hazards: Science, Communication and Policy All scientific bodies of national or international standing accept the finding of anthropogenic climate change. Scientists have tested possible links between climate change and extreme weather events, and found that climate change will likely increase the probability of some events including heat waves, heavy precipitation events, and local flooding. Some of these effects may already be occurring. This session will discuss extreme weather events, primary and secondary climate change effects on other natural hazards, and the societal impacts from these conditions. Improving our understanding of these uncertainties and how people make decisions may help inform risk communication and policy choices.
