It turns out that precipitation patterns may be changing across the globe as our climate warms. Scientists have discovered that human activities may be the cause for observed changes in precipitation across the world since it cannot be explained by natural variability alone.

In order to learn a little bit more about what might be causing the shift in precipitation patterns, the researchers compared climate model predictions with the Global Precipitation Climatology Project's global observations, which span from 1979 to 2012. In the end, the scientists found that natural...
