Here you’ll see how the ITCZ determines the location of rainforests and deserts
In contrast to media narratives that global warming causes higher temperatures and drought, you will see, conclusively, why droughts and dryness cause higher temperatures and how reduced transport of moisture from the oceans to the land causes drought.

And contrary to media narratives, the science shows warmer temperatures will bring more rain.
