"Did Climate Change Intensify Hurricane Harvey?"

"“The human contribution can be up to 30 percent or so up to the total rainfall coming out of the storm.”"

"Climate scientists, who specialize in thinking about the Earth system as a whole, are often reticent to link any one weather event to global climate change. But they say that aspects of the case of Hurricane Harvey—and the recent history of tropical cyclones worldwide—suggest global warming is making a bad situation worse."
