Atmospheric drying will lead to lower crop yields, shorter trees across the globe. A global observation of an ongoing atmospheric drying — known by scientists as a rise in vapor pressure deficit — has been observed worldwide since the early 2000s.

I know that the most visible consequence of global warming (that is related to average global yearly temperatures) is climate change, but still, should be in global terms more water vapor in the atmosphere, not less, in fact is one of the positive feedback mechanisms of global warming. It could cause some changes in weather pattern and local droughts in some regions, but in average and in global scale things should go towards more humidity, not less.


This will potentially yield an over abundance of bonsai trees.
