"Global Warming & Flooding"
The Southeast United States has been plagued by flooding rains for over a week now and as I write this, 9 deaths have been to blame. Stu Ostro, senior director of weather communications at The Weather Channel states, “It’s very unusual to have that much rain at this time of the year in Georgia without it being from a tropical storm or hurricane.” The point here? No, a tropical storm or hurricane did not make landfall, and this has now landed on the radar of scientists who study climate change and global warming. What exactly is the link? An article sent to me today from Resource Media, outlines a recent climate report concerning the SE US and what impacts may be likely as we move through time. They provide excerpts from the report and are listed here.
