Climate Change Is Likely To Have Worsened Pakistan’s Heavy Rainfall: Report

Scientists said on Thursday that the heavy monsoon that flooded more than a third of Pakistan was a once-in-a-century event that was likely caused by climate change.

Climate warming made average five-day maximum rainfall about 75% more intense in the hardest-hit areas of Sindh and Balochistan provinces, where August rainfall was seven to eight times heavier than usual, World Weather Attribution (WWA), an international research cooperation that investigates the effect of climate change in severe occurrences, issued a study.

The scientists discovered that maximum rainfall was about 50% heavier over a two-month monsoon period due to climate change across the entire Indus River basin.

They used 31 computer models in their investigation, combined with real-world observations.
