Let’s just first of all start with the basics. The basics of global temperatures and water availability. All consequently according to the US Geological Survey.
Yet before we go into issues regarding water availability, let’s discuss the following. So what is the difference between global warming and climate change? Also how does it relate to global temperatures?
Now ironically and all the while people tend to use these terms interchangeably. But in contrast, they aren’t quite the same thing. For starters and clearly I get global warming is part of climate change.
Again, because “global warming” therefore refers to the rise above all in global temperatures. That’s more over due to the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases. Those gases more over increase the temperatures in our atmosphere.
So “climate change” refers to the increasing changes in the measures of climate. That’s also measured over a long period of time. In addition, it’s also including precipitation and global temperatures. It also more over is including wind patterns.
In addition, the IPCC report was also reviewed by NASA. As a result NASA stating the obvious. First of all, that close to 50 percent of people on Earth will see increased climate change. That also means and I expect; induced water stress consequently. I mean all as a result due to climate change.
Below is what will occur; all by limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. That’s as a result also depending on future socioeconomic conditions. Although and most importantly, the degree will likewise vary regionally.

Also, Freshwater increases above average are shown in blue. All the while decreases below average are also in red. Credit: NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio
So the above photo also shows a time series of global freshwater trends. It was consequently measured by NASA. It’s also the result of teaming with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment mission.
These measurements consequently took place from 2002 to 2016. During this period also the freshwater increases occurring are above average. They are also shown in blue. All the while and more over decreases below average are in red. Credit: NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio
The report also more over finds that at 2 degrees Celsius warming is expecting to be worse. I mean some places will see increases in heavy rainfall events. However water availability being limited. That’s also compared to at 1.5 degree warming.
So clearly I mean especially in the Northern Hemisphere high latitudes. That’s for example, places like Alaska and Western Canada. Also, Eastern Canada, Greenland and Iceland. Finally, Northern Europe and Northern Asia. Also mountainous regions like the Tibetan Plateau, Southeast Asia, and Eastern North America. All are as a result to be expecting higher flooding risks.
In conclusion, more of Earth’s land areas will also be affected. All by flooding and as a result, increased runoff. Finally they are expecting heavy rainfall and higher tropical cyclones.
