Warming is accelerating global water cycle

Saving a penny for a rainy day? Climate change is accelerating the earth’s water cycle, and James S. Famiglietti, a hydrologist at UC Irvine, is using enhanced techniques to predict impacts from stream flow measurements around the globe. Evaporations rates, precipitation rates, and stream flows from land ice will intensify as global warming continues. What does this mean for you?  Storms will become more intense as polar regions and the tropics receive more rain and snowfall than temperate regions. How will you spend your chunk of change?
