News Report On Our EOS Article “Have Large Dams Altered Extreme Precipitation Patterns?” By Hossain Et Al 2009

CO2 Science has a quite good news report dated December 8 2010  titled

Global Warming and the Intensification of Rainfall Events

which concerns our paper

Hossain, F., Jeyachandran, I. and Pielke Sr., R. 2009. Have large dams altered extreme precipitation patterns? EOS, Transactions, American Geophysical Union: 453-454.

The CO2 Science article includes the insightful text

“Although there is a clear correlation between the development of large dams throughout the world and subsequent increases in extreme precipitation, the three scientists state in a cautionary note that “other factors may [also] be involved, such as global climate change.” And such could well be true. But one typically doesn’t hear the opposite, i.e., climate alarmists acknowledging that increases in extreme precipitation events might partly be induced by something other than global warming. So in comparing the objectivity of the two groups of scientists, it would appear that climate alarmists are less likely to entertain the possibility that views contrary to their own might possibly be even partially correct.”

Thanks to CO2 Science for illuminating this continued narrow viewpoint of the IPCC climate science community.
