Model Simulations Spanning 140 Years Show Warming Effects from Carbon Dioxide

Loading video...

Caption: Model simulations spanning 140 years show that warming from carbon dioxide will change the frequency that regions around the planet receive no rain (brown), moderate rain (tan), and very heavy rain (blue). The occurrence of no rain and heavy rain will increase, while moderate rainfall will decrease.
