Hurricane Florence Expected to Drop 50 Percent More Rain Due to Climate Change

Hurricane Florence measures 50 miles wider and will drop 50 percent more rainfall on the U.S. East Coast than it would have without global warming, according to a new attribution study by a team of U.S. scientists. The research is the first to examine climate change’s impact on extreme weather before a storm hits, rather than in the weeks following a disaster. The scientists — from Stony Brook University, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research — used real-time forecasts and climate conditions to model the storm, and then re-ran the models with what those values would have been without climate change. “This is the first time we’ve done this predictively,” Michael Wehner , a climate scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and co-author of the new study, told National Geographic . “Climate change increases th...
