A Future of Super Charged Storms is Here, & Rising

AGU Fall Meeting: Human-caused warming likely intensified Hurricane Harvey's rains,
American Geophysical Union, December 13, 2017.

"Harvey’s seven-day rainfall total potentially increased by at least 19 percent compared to a similar storm in the mid-20th century."

"...finds climate change made the record three-day rainfall that fell over Houston during Hurricane Harvey roughly three times more likely and 15 percent more intense than a similar storm in the early 1900s."

"...confirms heavy rainfall events are increasing across the Gulf Coast region because of human interference with the climate system. "

"The new study finds human-induced climate change likely increased Hurricane Harvey’s unprecedented rainfall by at least 19 percent and potentially as much as 38 percent."

"...he new study finds human-induced climate change likely increased Hurricane Harvey’s unprecedented rainfall by at least 19 percent and potentially as much as 38 percent."

Our actions up to this time have broken Nature, affecting its every aspect, and throwing it out of balance. Now Nature is no longer just absorbing punishment, but is now actively returning the favor, and breaking the things we humans built, the things that broke Nature.

Each will increase together, both our continuing natural destruction, and Nature's responding, once Nature finally catches-up with responding to our past irresponsible growth. Nature's got a lot of catching-up to do.

Meanwhile, we humans are rapidly piling new insults up upon the past indignities and injuries we've done to Nature, quicker that It can respond.
