Settled science: New paper challenges climate science consensus on winds & rainfall — Published in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics


The paper finds that forests themselves are a significant factor in causing rainfall which “opens up a lot of potential to improve rainfall in dry areas through reforestation.” If true, the atmospheric model the scientists have developed “could revolutionize the way we understand local climates, and their vulnerability, with many major implications,” according to the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), which participated in the new study.
