Ep 75 / Drowning Freezing World

J. M. W. Turner, Snow Storm: Steamboat off a Harbour's Mouth. 1842. Oil on Canvas. Tate Gallery, London.

Will this wild weather ever end? Massive precipitation is linked to climate change, and that’s what we are seeing already continuing from 2010, all over the world.

It’s storming and flooding all over the world, from Australia, to New York to Brazil to Pakistan, — this winter has been freezing and wet. Is there a connection to global warming? You bet there’s a connection. Global warming is driving these huge amounts of precipitation and this is the new normal. Storms and floods will only increase from here on. See the record precip video at Climate Crocks.
