They talk about millions of people on the move, all over the world. That is what is happening now. One more year of drought and the Midwest will see dust bowl conditions again. The Northeast? Should we allow them to rebuild anything? farmers are now fishermen in Bangledesh.

3. I think they got the time frame wrong..

 

It is happening far faster than anyone imagined. Imagine if we have another year of extreme drought in the Midwest? The Mississippi is nearly closed.

Summertime is gonna be very interesting this year.

6. 2 Great Lakes at lowest levels ever...

 

Water levels in Lake Huron and Lake Michigan are the lowest they've ever been since records keeping began in 1918, according to the US Army Corps of Engineers. That finding, which corresponds to a decade of diminished precipitation and higher temperatures, worries barging and commercial fishing interests, with both industries saying it will have harsh economic consequences.

"We're in an extreme situation," Keith Kompoltowicz, watershed hydrology chief for the Corps' Great Lakes Hydraulics and Hydrology Office in Detroit, told the Associated Press Tuesday.
