Look Out California, Climate Scientist Warns of “Megafloods”

USA Today

Megadrought may be the main weather concern across the West right now amid the constant threat of wildfires and earthquakes. But a new study warns another crisis is looming in California: “Megafloods.”

Climate change is increasing the risk of floods that could submerge cities and displace millions of people across the state, according to a study released Friday. More

  2. There was an article on Yahoo recently that southern IL received three 1000-year rainfalls in ONE WEEK.

    8 to 12 inches of rain fell within a 12 hour timeframe and that kinda rain has only a 0.1% chance of happening in any given year.

    and then it goes off the rails..

    “But that was before climate change.”

    “Due to trapping gases, mainly from combustion of fossil fuels, the global average temperature has increased by 1.1 degrees since the dawn of the industrial revolution. With each degree increase of temperature, the air can hold 7% more water.”

    It’s frickin settled dammit, 3 1000-year rains in one week, there’s no other explanation. Mother nature has spoken with rain and we know for a fact because 7%.

    Seems to me that with a 7% increase in what the air can hold, the AMOUNT of rain should also coincide with that percentage, and maybe even the FREQUENCY. I’ll give them that much, but to say a 7% increase equals commonplace 1000-year rains? No, that’s too far, it’s nonsensical.

    It’s particularly nonsensical because if it was a 1000-year drought, they would use the same logic and blame climate change. It’s the only reason provided for any weather anomaly rather than using actual science to study and understand what’s happening.

    So sick of this BS.

  3. And we haven’t even talked about the onset of our 12,000 Solar cycle, Earth’s rapidly decreasing magnetic field, a possible magnetic polarity reversal in our future, the Earth now once again passing trough the galactic current sheet and the increasing chances of 1859-like Solar events – all combined to produce unknown BADNESS, including temporary loss of our ozone layer, increased tectonic/volcanic activity and actual global cooling.

    I sure don’t want to talk about any of that. 🙂

  4. None of the wealthy “elite” believe this.
    Just go on Zillow or other real estate sites and look up California coastal home prices. On the beach is insanely expensive.
    I think these reporters are trying to buy at the beach and want the price to go down.
    Not happening – just like their weather fears..

  5. “…floods that could submerge cities and displace millions of people across the state…”

    Uh, thanks to Gavin Newsome, people are already fleeing the state.

  6. What ever it is, they will throw more of our money at it, and have no effect at all.
    Other than making us poorer.
    Maybe John Kerry just needs to park his private jet for a year.

  7. Actually, the models for an “atmospheric river” event for California due to an unusual and dramatic jet stream shift were run decades ago. And it is a very likely scenario over the long haul. The central valley gets pretty much flooded out for weeks on end as the water takes forever to drain.

  8. Climate change is increasing the risk of floods that could submerge cities and displace millions of people across [California]…

    OK, but what’s the down-side?
