Environment: Intense rainfall due to global warming could raise flood risk. The Guardian reports that “Climate scientists have issued a fresh warning over the future risk of flooding after research showed heavy rainstorms are likely to become even more intense than predicted.”
Note that this is not flooding due to sea level rise, but simply intense rainstorms will cause more flooding as the drainage systems in place where simply not designed to cope with rainfall this heavy.
