Study: California’s wild extremes of drought and floods to worsen as climate warms

This article discusses the problems California is having because of climate change. And it will only get worse.

Over the past couple of years, California lurched from its worst drought ever to disastrous, record flooding.

Now, a new study suggests the frequency of these rapid, year-to-year swings from extreme dry to wet conditions — which the study authors dub “precipitation whiplash events” — may become more common in California’s future as a consequence of man-made global warming.
