Paul Beckwith on the deluge in Japan


Japan Crushed by Godzilla-Like Deluge, Floods, and Landslides



Paul Beckwith

Abrupt Climate Change wreaks havoc many different ways in different places. A cacophony of adverse conditions is occurring in Japan. 

 Very hot sea-surface temperatures create high air humidity; winds directed by a stuck jet stream bring this moisture over Japan; it rises up over mountainous terrain, condenses into storm clouds, with long-duration torrential rains for days, saturating and lubricating the soils, making them much heavier so they move downhill in massive landslides, inundating and levelling villages causing mass fatalities
