Many climate scientists are doing research on how climate change will affect the individual components of the weather, such as clouds, precipitation, lightning, nature, etc. Thus, in the Tel Aviv University found that for every degree of warming in the future will have 10% more lightning during thunderstorms than usual.
As the climate model and the available examples of acute cycle of El Niño in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, the increase in the intensity of storms take on a momentum negative effects and increase the risk of floods, fires, increased incidence of dead and destruction of infrastructure.
More intense lightning storms especially impact on the climate of those areas that become warmer and drier in the framework of global warming, including the Mediterranean and the southern United States. When the model of Tel Aviv scientists have been tested in the climatic extreme conditions such as wet and arid Africa Amazonia, found that in them, and in those parts of the world, where an increase in the intensity of storms is no doubt, a new leap forward in terms of guaranteed . Southeast Asia will rise frequency of lightning up to 50% with the overall reduction in the number of storms, but usually, the smaller storms, the smaller fixed lightning.
As you know. Lightning is still a major cause of fires in the forests. If the forecast is correct, the territory of the Rockies will be on more often than it is now, especially in the drier weather. Fires become larger scale and destructive power, the amount of smoke and soot emitted into the air, will also grow.
Spain and Italy, the Middle East, by contrast, increased precipitation and undergo constant flood of spilled rivers. River will take the accumulated water in the sea, and underground springs and lakes will peter out as sharp fleeting thunderstorms are not contribute to their enrichment. This, in turn, conceals another natural disaster.
