Yes these are all weather events, and any area of the world can have unusual weather patterns from time-to-time. The difference now is that these
unusual weather events are becoming more commonplace.
And taking a holistic view of global weather patterns, we're experiencing larger "sets" of unusual weather behavior. In other words, we're seeing a
greater number of unusual wildfires, droughts, heat waves, and other extreme phenomena in different areas of the globe within the same season.
That's how this differs from the usually smaller sets of extreme events that have happened in the past.
Simply making preparations to deal with these extreme weather events is all we can do right now. Even if everyone immediately began adhering to
procedures and policies to limit greenhouse gas emissions, we'll still be experiencing the effects of climate disruption for some time to come. Since
that is not going to happen, we will need to get used to, and prepare for, more extreme weather events.
