Video: What Do Baseball and Steroids Have to Do With Climate Change?

This is a neat video by the US National Center for Atmospheric Research explaining the relation of increasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and extreme weather events. A baseball player on steroids may still strike out some times, but he is much more likely to hit a home run than without steroids. An individual weather event may not be directly linked to climate change and there may still be cold records, but climate change increases the number of extreme weather events and heat records.

They have also put together an informative website.
