Water Supply In A Warming World

It has been well known that when there is a climate change there is usually a problem having to due with water. It is expected to prepare for more coastal & inland flooding. Other than the flooding you must also expect the temperatures to rise and great evaporation which dimensions water resources. Recently though, scientists have stated that the outlook on fresh water may not be as bad as it seems. Groundwater is one of the most important sources of water for a lot of countries, and Richard G. Taylor of University College of London noted that more intense rainfall may help recharge the aquifers that supply groundwater. This analysis by Richard G. Taylor and a dozen other scientists is based on a 55-year year record compiled in Tanzania. This may help us offset some of the ill effects of climate change.
