The rains are coming!

It seems that thanks to global warming the volume of rain produced by individual storms will rise. A global climate model at the University of California was used to make that prediction. Up to now, scientists knew that rainfall was expected to increase with global warming but how this would affect individual storms was unclear.

What was found with those models was that an increase of 3 degrees would result in the probability of large events occurring ten times more often in most regions. According to the model, this increase of rain could severely affect societies capacity to adapt. Naturally, the poorer the society is the harder the effects will be. No doubt that Asia and possibly Africa could face serious problems with such an increase of precipitation and once again poorer areas of the world would suffer. I have no doubt that rich countries would adapt
