Climate changes: Global warming likely to worsen the Pakistan flood

Climate changes: Global warming likely to worsen the Pakistan flood

Scientist says Global warming has likely played a role in the devastating floods that hit Pakistan.

A Group of Researchers from the World Weather Attribution say climate change may have increased the intensity of rainfall. However, the teams were unable to quantify the scale of the impact as there were many uncertainties in the results. The scientists believe there is roughly a 1% chance of such an event happening in any coming year.

Before two months flooding began in Pakistan. It affected more than ten million people and around 1,500 died because of the rising waters. The river Indus burst its bank it showing the intensity of the downpours and urban flash floods and landslides also swamped many areas. Pakistani politicians were pointing to climate change right from the start as having made a significant contribution to the desperate scenes. But according to the first scientific analysis, the picture is complex.

Earlier this year the crippling heatwaves gripped India and Pakistan and they were easier to attribute with researchers finding, that climate change had made them up to 30 times more likely to happen. But this extreme rainfall has been hard to assess. This is also because Pakistan is located on the edge of the monsoon region where rainfall pattern is variable every year.
