Has anyone really thought through the role that water plays in keeping the earth healthy? We know what it does for us, but what does it do for Mother Nature? In some of the older forums here about global warming and rainwater capture, some people brought up the role of trees (which help to clean the air AND capture rain). While some people scoffed at global warming and others took it seriously, the media seems to be always connecting it with the carbon dioxide humans produce. What if that's only one factor? What if the redistribution of rain is another, more impactful factor? What do you think?
Global warming/cooling, increased hurricane intensity & frequency, and changing weather patterns are all part of the larger issue of Climate Change. Redistribution of precipitation is certainly a key part of climate change that people are studying right now. In fact, a study published about three years ago talked about how the Sahara desert is actually shrinking because of the increased rainfall in some parts of that region. However, other parts of the globe are experiencing less rainfall (think Texas and some parts of India). How much of this change is caused by man? Who knows for sure. The fact is that the climate naturally changes and goes through cycles (as it has for eons). However this does not meet that we can ignore what is happening. Since water is the single most important substance on the planet, I would have to agree that changing rainfall patterns is probably a more important issue than CO2 emissions.
