How Pressure Systems Control Climate Part 2: ITCZ, Rainforests And Deserts


Jim Steele


This is part 2 in my educational series on Climate Science

Here you’ll see how the ITCZ  determines the location of rainforests and deserts

In contrast to media narratives that global warming causes higher temperatures and drought, you will see, conclusively, why droughts and dryness cause higher temperatures and how reduced transport of moisture from the oceans to the land causes drought.

You will see that during the coldest periods of the last 10,000 years, societies experienced the worst droughts,

And contrary to media narratives, the science shows warmer temperatures will bring more rain.
