In this paper Michael F. Wehner and Kevin A. Reed highlight how it is now well established that the influence of anthropogenic climate change on certain individual extreme weather events can be quantified by event attribution techniques. And that it is time that these activities move from the research community to the operational centers. Such routine evaluation of the human influence on extreme weather increases our scientific understanding and informs the public of climate change impacts. Furthermore, quantification of the human influence on extreme weather can be used to fairly evaluate climate change induced loss and damages.
