Scientists have seen a correlation in the increase of green house gases and the amount of droughts and flash flooding. Now there are efforts being made to track the amount of precipitation and the increase of it.

Storms have become 5 times more frequent with 70% more rain in recent years due to the high emissions of green house gases. This will only get worse and more intense if this continues.

Can you list at least 5 ways that we could help reduce this increase of precitation? Think of ways that people can reduce green house gas emissions!

Overview: The issue of increased precipitation was not only bringing up issues of risking the environments of many but also issues of increased green house gas emissions. This issue will open the eyes of many to the rising issues of humans quickly diminishing their and others environments.
