WASHINGTON (AP) — A study of a dozen of the wildest weather events from last year finds that man-made global warming increased the likelihood of about half of them -- including the devastating surge from Superstorm Sandy and the blistering U.S. summer heat. 

The report says the other half -- including the U.S. drought and a British summer that was wetter than ever -- simply reflected the random freakishness of weather. 

Those findings come from U.S. and British government scientists.
