Some meteorologists and scientists are working to help conservatives acknowledge that the climate is changing by removing any mention of "climate change" or human impact from their story, and instead focusing on putting extreme weather events in historical context (e.g. 500 year floods happening every few years now, etc.). This article draws from the American Meteorological Society's recent annual meeting, and Climate Central's Climate Matters program.
