However, what I can tell you is over the next 100 to 500 years winds OVER 100 miles per hour will become more and more common globally BECAUSE of Global warming.
Because Heat rises. Hotter air rises faster. So, when hotter air rises faster and faster winds or air that tries to replace that vacuum of air go faster and faster worldwide. As air goes faster and faster worldwide plants blow away, trees blow away, homes are destroyed, ships are lost at sea, people die by the thousands in Hurricanes and tornadoes and sand storms and droughts and windstorms, water is blown by the wind, waves get bigger on oceans and lakes and rivers and likely many more people not expecting these outcomes will die, be maimed or injured in various ways. Populations of many areas will reduce as winds increase and rain patterns shift and food cannot be grown because rain is either too much or not enough to grow crops from rain from the sky, crops are blown away from the winds etc. etc. etc.
So, more heat in oceans creates faster evaporation creates more clouds, more winds, more rains, changing rain patterns, more and stronger hurricanes, more tornadoes etc. etc. etc.
So, all the things I'm writing about here likely are going to increase over the next few centuries.
In fact, they will increase if there were no humans on earth at all for the next 300 to 500 years just from the momentum of what humans have done already. So, even with NO humans on earth at all doing anything the next 300 to 500 years all this would increase. But, because we are continuing to change everything it likely is going to be much worse than you or I can presently imagine eventually.
And this should be a concern to everyone. Because not properly addressing all of this now is the death of all our children and grandchildren eventually on down the line.
By the way the 1862 floods in California are historic and happen every 150 to 300 years sort of like clockwork:
- The Great Flood of 1862 was the largest flood in the recorded history of Oregon, Nevada, and California, occurring from December 1861 to January 1862.
- Floods in California. All types of floods can occur in California, though 90% are caused by ... December 1861 – January 1862: California's Great Flood
