Climate change is responsible for driving an increase in the likelihood and intensity of extreme weather events, notably heat waves…Failing to adapt to or mitigate climate change and a host of other climate-connected risks including water and food crises and involuntary migration also rank in the top 10…[Climate change has] been a fixture in the top 5 threats in terms of likelihood and impact since 2011…There were 15 disasters that cost the U.S. $1 billion or more in 2016, trailing only 2011 for a record number of billion-dollar disasters…
