The full title should be "Thing that reminds us of global warming, but, like all individual weather phenomena, can't be proved to be directly linked to it on account of the overwhelming complexity of the Earth's climactic system, which manifests itself in seemingly random (when localized) temperature, rainfall, and windspeed variations--a photo gallery (of the day)" but that wouldn't fit. The fact remains, as the climate changes, some areas will get wetter, many will become drier, and the overwhelming majority will become hotter. Leading, almost inevitably, to things like this:
