Conservatives may not acknowledge that climate change is caused by man, but there's no denying that extreme weather is taking its toll. More than 3,000 record high temperatures were reported in the U.S. in June alone, and an oppressive heat wave in the Midwest shows no sign of relenting. A recent tropical storm in Florida flooded entire towns, forcing 14,000 to evacuate. And that was before monsoons in India killed dozens this week. These photographs show how weird weather is changing lives.
