Universal Flood: what the earth was like in the past and how it can become
Climate change presents the bill in several ways and one of them is the dry spells followed by torrential rains. A flood it can always be around the corner after a period of complete absence of water. The phenomenon is more and more frequent and according to scholars in the past the Earth has experienced this moment in its hottest periods.
Our current situation is offering new insights for study to experts. This is a new situation, at least never experienced by man or never documented if we exclude the biblical universal flood. What we might expect are large thunderstorms hundreds of kilometers capable of discharging impressive quantities of water.
Flood and drought: one of the many effects of climate change
The words of the experts on the subject: “If you were to look at a large area of the deep tropics today, it always rains somewhere. But we have found that in extremely hot climates, there may be more rainless days anywhere on a large part of the ocean. Then suddenly a huge storm it would erupt over almost the entire domain, discharging an enormous amount of rain. Then it would be quiet for a couple of days and repeat.
The phenomenon is due to what it is called inhibition layer, a layer near the earth’s surface where heated water vapor accumulates. In this area no clouds are able to form while in the upper atmosphere the dispersion of heat does. From the latter it rains, but evaporates before reaching the earth thus increasing the steam. At a certain point this layer no longer holds up and so there is the green light for a universal flood, one of many. The cause is high temperatures.
