Whatever the weather, it’s going to intensify. “High latitude countries, such as in Europe or North America, are expected to receive more rainfall, but many … subtropical arid and semi-arid regions will likely experience less precipitation … Over wet tropical regions, extreme precipitation events will very likely be more intense and more frequent.” Consequently “a hot world is a hungry world.” (http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/2013/sep/27/climate-change-poor-countries-ipcc)

Like drinking alcohol, your starting mood gets more intense, then you get the munchies. Then you get the hangover.



“Atmospheric rivers carry vast amounts of water vapour around the Earth, delivering heavy and prolonged rainfall.” (http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/jul/24/worse-floods-uk-climate-warms)

If you’re heading out today, do remember your snorkel.
