    A paper in Science today finds rapidly changing ocean salinities as a result of a warming atmosphere have intensified the global water cycle (evaporation and precipitation) by an incredible 4 percent between 1950 and 2000. That's twice the rate predicted by models.

    While scientists continue to monitor climate change and the cause and effect on the environment, a new study from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory looks at the global water cycle and describes changing patterns of salinity in the world’s oceans over a 50 year period. Their findings suggest changes are occurring faster than previous models predicted and they believe the redistribution of rainfall will affect food availability, stability, access and utilization.
