9th April - Today's News: A Warmer World Means More Rain

A warming world will further intensify extreme precipitation events, research shows.  The reasoning being quite simple: a warmer atmosphere holds more moisture, more moisture means more precipitation.   And that includes winter snow as well as summer rain.   However, this study doesn't appear to take into account precipitation pattern change wrought by deforestation, urbanisation and other land use change - so we may not necessarily see so many regions receive more rain.

Climate change will threaten wine production, study shows - though it has to be said we're already producing very high quality wines in southern England.   And if you're flying out to a vineyard, be warned climate change will lead to bumpier flights as well.  Perhaps.
