Julian Brimelow

Interesting new paper out, discussed at Isaac Held's blog.  I recommend readin his blog by the way, very cool stuff.

Given that some people are disputing that the hydrologicla cycle is amplifying in repsonse to the warming and moistening of the atmosphere, this finding stood out.

"Qualitatively, the observed global multidecadal salinity changes are thus consonant with both broad-scale surface warming and the amplification of the global hydrological cycle".

Another independent line of evidence that corroborates what the physics and sicentists expect to happen.  Anyhow, a good paper to ahve in hand when someone disputes that the hydrological cycle is amplifying.  I'll post this on the Extreme's thread now.
