Climate alarmists typically contend that in response to global warming, both droughts and floods become more frequent and severe. It is therefore important to determine if long-term precipitation data from various places throughout the world provide any evidence for this phenomenon, which should be evident — if the climate-alarmist contention is true — over the period of time when the planet transited from the coldest interval of the current interglacial period (the Little Ice Age) to the end of the 20th century, by which time they claim the earth had warmed at a rate and to a level that was unprecedented over the past one to two millennia. Herein we thus explore such real-world data as it pertains to Asia, starting with a review of what researchers have found for China.
