What we can expect from climate change
I think it is very natural to wonder what we can expect from climate change. Maybe you are wondering if our southern Minnesota climate will change so much that we can look forward to tropical winters! We won't see that in our lifetime--or even several hundred lifetimes most likely--but what we will see from climate change is more energy in the atmosphere, and that means more extreme weather and weather events like tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes, etc. We have broken weather record after weather record in the last decade and seen more occurances of random weather events.
