[Excerpt] As the climate warms, tiny particles suspended in the atmosphere may have a greater effect than greenhouse gases on increasing the frequency of extreme rain and snowfall. [] Greenhouse gases and atmospheric aerosols both drive extreme precipitation, which is expected to increase with climate change. [...]
