Abstract

To the Editor — The Commentary by Parmesan and co-authors in the April 2011 issue of Nature Climate Change argues that attribution studies to evaluate the impacts of anthropogenic climate change are ill-advised. We disagree — on the contrary they are essential for credible prediction of future impacts. Regional and local attributions make a remote concern — that of long-term global climate change — relevant on a scale that the public and policymakers can relate and respond to.
