Extreme Rain Link To Global Warming

Scientists running sophisticated computer models are beginning to link increased greenhouse gasses - caused by man's burning of fossil fuels - with increased rainfall events.

"The British study focused on flooding in England and Wales in the fall of 2000. The disaster cost more than $1.7 billion in insured damages and was the wettest autumn for the region in more than 230 years of record-keeping. Researchers found that global warming more than doubled the likelihood of that flood occurring."
