  • Fewer trees, less rain: study uncovers deforestation equation

    (2005) Australian scientists say they have found proof that cutting down forests reduces rainfall. The finding, independent of previous anecdotal evidence and computer modelling, uses physics and chemistry to show how the climate changes when forests are lost, by analyzing variations in the molecular structure of rain along the Amazon River. Not all water, Professor Henderson-Sellers said, […]
