Global warming and floods

Massive changes in global ecology taking place on a daily basis bear testimony to the haunting impact of the ever-changing climate.

This ecological impact has given rise to a rapid increase in the burning of fossil fuels, emission of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, large-scale deforestation, loss of biodiversity, severe land degradation and environmental pollution.

If warnings issued by previous studies weren’t enough, a new study has warned that global warming will put millions of more people at the risk of severe river flooding in the next 20 years, particularly in the US and parts of India, Africa, and central Europe.

Already today, fluvial floods are among the most common and devastating natural disasters, researchers said.
