Projected increase in lightning strikes due to global warming

The prestigious journal Science published a study that indicates that climate change will increase the activity of the lightnig strikes by 12% per degree centigrade temperature to rise.
We must consider that the lightning that have more electric current are produced in the tropics,so when the temperature is bigger the lightning strikes are stronger.
