Modifying all of our heavy rail diesel with an electrified contact however is a no-brainer and should be our first priority in building out electric transport infrastructure. Regular diesel trains could still use the same track. And be retrofitted to run on electric rails where possible and switch to diesel where needed.
Perhaps Robert Lutz will expand on this concept.
The railroads are already electric,so yeah,connecting them to the grid is a natural,unless of course,you're a purveyor of diesel fuel.

I'm curious as to how flood data was recorded 1000 years ago?
Or is this just another case of pure assumptions and more "make it up as you go along"?
Floods are weather, so weather events are climate now?
The Chinese were recording data 4,000 years ago or so.The Yangtze and Yellow Rivers were a real issue.

I remember reading articles about how man made global warming was going to cause drought. It's turning out to be the catch all for any and every unusual weather phenomenon anywhere.
The poles are as much as 15-degrees warmer than the global mean average temp.
Evidently,this affects the Jet Stream,which in turn can cause redistribution of precipitation patterns as it meanders around in Black Swan dynamics; moving high and low pressures around the map.

Even that is difficult, because things like increasing wildfires might be due to having more trees than 100 years ago, or from fire prevention keeping lower intensity burns from clearing out debris periodically until it gets to dangerous levels.

I'm not saying there is no problem from GW, only that it's nearly impossible to attribute any particular event to it, and we're prone to confirmation bias if we believe GW is driving these events.
Yeah,the climatologists recommend we not confuse 'weather' for 'climate.'
The Black Swan events do get people's attention.
We have recently experienced meteorological events which are unprecedented in recorded history,like the number of Pacific Basin cyclones/typhoons,and Atlantic hurricanes forming where they've never done it before.
It's an interesting movie.

They do. Suspicious 0bservers regularly points out that the heat maps are cherry-picked in favor of warming.

GOES 16 shows weather patterns with a one minute refresh rate. We're learning from that end of the scale too.

Better that poles be 15 degrees warmer than 15 degrees cooler.

I don't know.
Right now,the North Pole is 36-degrees F,and the sun isn't up.
There's a lot of methane up there,and as the ice goes the albedo goes ,warming amplifies, which accelerates the methane release, exacerbating the warming,which exacerbates the melting,albedo,ad infinitum.
Melting at Greenland,the Arctic,and Antarctic are exceeding model forecasts.Glaciologists are bewildered.
It's the self-reinforcing feedback loops and non-linear progressions climatologists wig-out over.
Boo-hiss!

It didn't exceeded the "polar ice caps will be melted by 2010" model.
