  1. For a bit of perspective, consider the Mississippi flood of 1927, which was not caused by too much carbon dioxide…..

    “The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 was the most destructive river flood in the history of the United States,[1] with 27,000 square miles inundated up to a depth of 30 feet. [….]

    “The flood began with extremely heavy rains in the central basin of the Mississippi in the summer of 1926. By September, the Mississippi’s tributaries in Kansas and Iowa were swollen to capacity. On Christmas Day of 1926,[3] the Cumberland River at Nashville exceeded 56.2 feet (17 m), a level that remains a record to this day, higher than the devastating 2010 floods.

    “Flooding overtopped the levees, causing Mounds Landing to break with more than double the water volume of Niagara Falls. The Mississippi River broke out of its levee system in 145 places and flooded 27,000 square miles (70,000 km2). This water flooded an area 80 km (50 mi) wide and more than 160 km (99 mi) long. The area was inundated up to a depth of 30 feet (10 m). The flood caused over $400 million in damages and killed 246 people in seven states.

    “The flood affected Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Arkansas was hardest hit, with 14% of its territory covered by floodwaters. By May 1927, the Mississippi River below Memphis, Tennessee, reached a width of 60 miles (97 km).[4]”

  2. We agree that the surface temperature of the Oceans, on the average, is the warmest on record [not caused by CO2]. Since the Solar output is declining, this means warm Oceans, cool lands [continents].
    Water is evaporated from the Oceans and condenses over the cool lands. Expect this to continue until 2020, Why? We will be four years into the Solar minimum, and four years of Oceans cooling.
