After a year that saw many parts of the country hit by scorching heat, devastating wildfires, severe storms and record flooding, a new Environment Missouri report documents how global warming could lead to certain extreme weather events becoming even more common or more severe in the future. The report uses FEMA data to detail the number of weather disasters that Missouri counties have experienced in recent years, and also highlights recent extreme weather events that have impacted Missouri and the nation, such as the flooding of southeast Missouri the summer of 2011.
Today, Representative John Mica (R-FL), Chairman of the House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, officially introduced a major transportation reauthorization bill that would wreak havoc on our environment.
