A U.N.-created panel finds climate change is responsible for cases of extreme weather - citing floods, monsoons, and heat waves outside the normal range of occurrences. A report issued by IPCC (.pdf) on the controversial topic expresses "high confidence" that daily temperatures have increased due to greenhouse gases.
