    Some experts say that global warming contributed to the flooding in Pakistan. The Asian monsoon, one of the most powerful atmospheric forces on the planet, has said to have been enhanced through rising sea temperatures due to global warming. Pakistan has also experienced remarkable temperatures; in May Pakistan reached 128.3 degrees Fahrenheit, the highest ever seen in Asia. Global warming may be strongly linked to the flooding in Pakistan.

    There is evidence that the flooding in Pakistan was influenced by global warming. Extreme rainfall and changing rain patterns have been affecting South Asia. In addition to this, the amount of ice over the Tibetan plateau has been reduced, and there is less snow at higher elevations. All of this contributes to greater mountain run-off, which was a factor in the flooding. These were all caused by warming temperatures and the less stable atmosphere, which are both products of global warming.
