Take a look. How many people live in the tropics and subtropics and warm places like Britain, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France, Denmark, Poland, Japan. That's 90% of the world's people right there. How many people live in the Arctic and the Antarctica? That's a few thousand + 0. Global warming is beneficial, not detrimental. And I challenge you to argue otherwise.

Sweden is not normally considered a warm place.

But yes, the warmer the climate the generally more populous and fertile it is generally.

The great deserts of the world are dry due to being next to the equitorial regions where the moisture of the air is concentrated and the air over the deserts is generally wandering equatorwise and sucking up moisture thus creating deserts.

When the world was warmer it was wetter in most deserts.

Not as warm as Germany, but quite warm compared to say Canada.

Check the Stockholm weather. Seems to be pretty much above 0 C all winter.

Not how deserts are formed.

Descending air creates deserts. Rising air creates rainfall.

Oh God....

Yes, air decends at 40degrees North/South or so and then sweeps across the surface moving west and towards the equator. As it does so it heats up and gathers moisture. This continues untill in the equitorial regions it rises, dropping it's moisture as it cools/expands due to increased altitude.

The air then moves at high altitude to 40 North/South where it drops again.

Increased general temperatures mean a general increase in moisture content in the air which will result in a general increase in rainfall.

Not really. We have a working example of rainfall in warm water and cold water already. There is no real difference.

It causes the amount of rain to be more for a given drop from one temperature to amother. This will often make it rain when it otherwise would not of.

Rain is the result of moist air cooling. If the air is already cold or notmoist it will not cause rain.

Hot air holds more water. When it cools it rains more and more often.

Oh God....

I say it again then....

The air in the areas next to the hotest (over the whole day) zone of the earth, those would be the equitorial jungle bits, is moving towards the equitorial zones.

As it does it gets hotter. Thus taking up moisture. Thus not dropping it.

I don't know where you went to school but when I was 13 this is what I learnt in geography class. It's very basic.

Tim, over the whole day, the temperature increases and gets hot over the Amazon rain forest as well as over the Arabian desert. Air moves over both.

One is a desert and one is thriving with life and no shortage of water. The rain forest is closer to the equator than the Arabian desert.

Just an observation.

Yes, Surface Detail has explained how brilliant he is for his British education (students master quantum mechanics by age 13 or something like that). I won't question your geography acumen.

Yes. I mean weather. Prevalent weather over a region. Some people like to say 'climate' here. It is a correct use of the term.

Yes. I understand exactly what makes rain to happen. You do NOT need warm water or air to make rain happen. All you need is rising air with moisture in it. Air rises because of a difference in temperature, not because it is hot.

No, it does not rain more, or even more often. Only rapidly rising air causes it to rain harder, if it rises past the point of condensation. It does not rain more, just harder. It does not rain more often. Just harder when it does rain.

More rain occurs where there are nearby oceans to supply it, especially if the ocean is to the west, especially where rising air predominates such as the equator and about 49 deg latitude.

Up here near Seattle, for example, there are areas that get more rain than any tropical jungle.

Rainfall can be caused by moist air cooling in several ways.

The air being pushed over mountains such as in Norway, Western Scotland or the Rockies near Seattle will cause cooling as the air gains altitude and thus the pressure drops causing cooling.

If the air has more water in it it will rain more. And do so more often. Taking those occaisions where it almost rained to it actually happening.

How much rainfall do you get in the wettest parts of the Pacific North West? Are they up to the levels of some bits of Scotland or Norway (5m per year)? There are still wetter places that get a double monsoon though...

This is rising air.

Not necessarily. This is dependent on the rate of cooling in the air.
Tim the plumber wrote:
And do so more often.
Again, not necessarily. Very moist air may produce no rainfall at all.
Tim the plumber wrote:

The difference is cooling air, most often caused by rising.
