"Rainfall Patterns Can't Be Ignored in Climate Change Debate" is an article about what's happening in Brazil posted on IPS.


The flood/drought situation on Brazil has similarities to Australia's. 

The article also quotes the founder of the "flying rivers", Gerard Moss, a Swiss-born Brazilian pilot whose project of that name shows how air currents that carry water vapour from the Amazon influence rainfall in southern and southeastern Brazil.

The english version of the Flying Rivers Project website is:  http://www.riosvoadores.com.br/english/the-project

The article also refers to Brazil's  National Institute for Space Research (INPE)
