Climate Change Is Messing With Rainfall Across The Entire Planet says a new study, reports Ari Phillips at Climate Progress. The Berkeley Lawrence Livermore Laboratory study, incorporating the previously ignored 77% of rainfall data occurring over oceans, finds wet areas are getting wetter, and dry areas drier – just as predicted under human driven global warming – and it will get worse. Storm tracks and dry areas are also being pushed towards the poles. It’s the first study to show the climate change fingerprint in rainfall patterns.
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 .

This is how YOU can make a difference.
