California’s climate is characterized by extremes with wide historical swings between drought and flood. This reality has been recently underscored by the dramatic transition from the worst drought on record during 2012-16 to the wettest season on record in early 2017. But California’s climate has been shifting perceptibly in recent years as the world warms—and much larger changes are likely in store. Join our conversation focusing on the geographical and oceanic nuances that give California its unique climate, along with thoughts on why recent events may offer a preview of California’s climate future.
