Just a doubt, rainfall in UAE has been low since the past many years, that is, even when pollutant emissions were low in the past years, so how is pollution the root cause?

From my reading, I found that's not big issue to consider CO2  and you can see this study done by NASA


For every one degree F. of CO2-induced warming, heavy rainfall will increase globally by 3.9 percent and light rain will increase by 1.0 percent. Moderate rainfall will decrease by 1.4 percent, which means that there will be little change in total global rainfall.

They conclude the model predictions of how much rain will fall at any one location as the climate warms are not very reliable.
