Why do alarmists keep saying climate change will cause drought?

And people too lazy to look up the actual numbers just take their word for it.


Pearl, if fossil fuels caused drought, we would have seen some evidence of it by now.

Lol Anon, that picture only shows one year.

Christian is just the name my parents gave me. Noah is a fairytale.

    A global average like that is not telling you much. Much of the damage from climate change is the change, at a regional level. Agricultural or natural ecosystems which used to receive reliable rainfall may no longer receive it. That causes problems that aren't neatly and immediately canceled out by a desert 500 miles away suddenly flooding.

    Some parts of the planet are indeed drying while others are getting wetter. Climate change is a massive game of chase across political boundaries, with all associated instabilities and cost. See the chart next to the one you posted, from your own source. 

    There are many peer reviewed papers specific to those regions that confirm the significance of these drying trends, and connect them directly to global warming.
