Global precipitation fails to obey theory of global warming
Alarmists frequently claim global warming causes increased atmospheric water vapor, and thus allegedly results in increased precipitation, floods, and even snow. However, a plot of all available worldwide data for the CPC Merged Analysis of Precipitation shows there has been a slight decrease in global precipitation over the past 30 years of global warming. In addition, there has been a decline in extremes of precipitation. Satellite and radiosonde data also show, contrary to the theory, that atmospheric water vapor, relative and specific humidity have all declined over the available instrumental records. Another basic tenet of global warming theory bites the dust?
