Dr. Mann criticized those who would deny climate change and mankind’s responsibility for it, even in the face of recent weather extremes

“One often hears the misleading claim that no single event, regardless of how extreme or unprecedented, can be blamed on climate change,” he said. “That is like saying that no single roll of a ‘six’ with loaded dice can be blamed on the loading of the dice.

“Just as the unusual number of ‘sixes’ rolled is due to the loading of the dice, so are the more frequent and extreme weather events we are seeing due collectively to the ‘loading’ of weather dice by increased heat-trapping greenhouse gases produced by our continued burning of fossil fuels,” he told reporters.
