From the Financial Times:

Both droughts and catastrophic deluges are to increase according to a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the body the UN has charged with reviewing research on climate risk…

But Chris Field, another co-chair, warned that it was too early to blame climate change for specific events, such as the drought afflicting many southern US states, or last year’s Russian heatwave, which officials said was the worst in recorded history. “We’re not yet at the stage where we can have confidence of attribution for a single event,” he said.
