Scientists say drought will be commonplace


Scientists are saying that people should get used to droughts after researching the worst drought in 800 years, saying such dry spells will be “commonplace,” reports The Globe and Mail.

In a study published in Nature Geoscience, a group of researchers concluded that the 2000 to 2004 drought in North America was the most severe in eight centuries. “Even worse, projections suggest that this drought will become the wet end of a drier hydroclimate period,” the study says.

U.S. farmers are already struggling with drought affecting their crop yeilds, causing food prices soar. “Projections indicate that drought events of this length and severity will be commonplace through the end of the 21st century,” the study says.

  1. It will be the Wild Rose ridings that are most affected by this :)
    Good. With a GAI I’d eat healthier, and get laid once in a while. And with women that aren’t mentally ill maybe. I saw a beautiful woman with her mom by a fountain. She had a dress that made her look like a belle from early 20th century. But I had a gig. Someone through a few quarters in the fountain. I had to wait until the old women weren’t looking. The bottom was slippery but luckily it wasn’t too deep.
    Dog murderers!! All of you!! How will you feed Rover without crops? I have my whole life to remind the world of who to target when preventable AGW “effects” happen: CPC and GOP.
    I wish we could all live in the mountains at high altitude….that’s where I see myself…
    This whole 13th century romanticism sucks. If you give women attention, you take it away from things like utilitarianism. It is good for weaker and dumber people. But the family values of AB are parasitic to the world. Unless women get paid less than men, I’m not exposing myself to buying endless gifts at my genius cdn wage: (I’m at around $5/hr now).
    If I ask them out they buy me Lundin shares in lieu of wedding ring.
