The Water Cycle and Climate change

As temperatures rise, evaporation increases and soils dry out. When rain does come,
it often falls as a violent downpour that doesn’t do much to help crops or other plants. Instead of gently soaking into the soil, the water hits very hard ground and runs off, often causing disastrous flooding before draining into rivers and being carried back to the sea. The soil remains mostly dry, and the increased global temperature results in still more evaporation and further increased risk of drought.
