I never had, but it is a word we should be flowing off our tongues.
All of this has to do with evapotranspiration, which is the movement of water from the land to the atmosphere.
What is going on in large parts of the world is that similar to the dryest parts of deserts where virtually all the water from the soils surface has gone bye bye and what that then means is that there is nothing to release into the atmosphere.
"If that's the case, the consequences could be serious. They could include reduced terrestrial vegetation growth, less carbon absorption, a loss of the natural cooling mechanism provided by evapotranspiration, more heating of the land surface, more intense heat waves and a "feedback loop" that could intensify global warming." the study said.
That doesn't sound good to me.
The following is from Science Daily and will make more sense than what I just wrote above.
