On Wednesday, An international team of scientists said that Human-induced climate change made this summer’s withering drought in the Northern Hemisphere at least 20 times more likely to happen.

As a result of current levels of warming, the drought that gripped Europe, China, and North America between June and August will likely occur once every 20 years, according to the World Weather Attribution service which assesses how closely individual weather events are related to global warming.

“The 2022 summer has shown how human-induced climate change is increasing the risks of agricultural and ecological droughts in densely populated and cultivated regions of the North Hemisphere,” said Sonia Seneviratne, a professor at the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science at ETH Zurich in Switzerland, who contributed to the study.
