Experts fear Germany's deadly floods are a glimpse into climate future

 

 

The climate experts have spoken. Since I am not an expert, I'm in no position to disagree with their conclusions.

Germany and Belgium, as well as parts of central Europe are grappling with devastating floods from intense rainfall over the past several days. More than 125 were confirmed dead as of Friday.

While scientists are still piecing together how climate change has influenced this weather event, they say it shows key characteristics of how storms will be impacted by climate change: higher amounts of rainfall falling for longer.

The rainfall set new records over the Rhine River Basin in Germany, where most of the flooding occurred. Streets became navigable only by boat, homes were inundated, sinkholes opened up, and part of a castle was swept away.

“It’s not so surprising because the increase of extreme events is something we’ve seen in climate model projections,” says Dieter Gerten, a climatologist at the Potsdam Institute.

As rescue teams moved in to help affected citizens, European leaders used the floods to reinforce their message that action needs to be taken to curb and adapt to climate change.

The World Weather Attribution Initiative studies how weather events occur as a result of human influence.

Earlier this month, an international team of scientists determined that these floods would be “virtually impossible” without climate change.

They run models simulating the low-pressure system in pre-industrial conditions. They then run models that factor in the effect of greenhouse gases to compare weather conditions with climate change’s influence.

“This flood was bigger in size and certainly more intense because of climate change."

 “Weather is being changed by human beings. Unless we meet this challenge, we can expect more such events in the future.”

And South Africa is a glimpse of the leftist Utopia.

 

We can't stop the rain, or cool the volcanoes, or steady the fault lines... but we can damn sure kill the commies.

 The only thing you can kill is your glass of Metamucil every morning.

And then it's nap time.

Why are your posts consistently so stupidly insane, FartRipper?

 

The flooding in Germany is being caused by extremely high amounts of rainfall, which is happening because of human caused global warming. Hotter air carries more moisture.

 

Volcanoes” have nothing to do with that, moron. Neither do “the fault lines”.

 

Retards like you should just keep your heads safely tucked up your asses and never try to post the bullshit bubbling there.
