Yeah maybe. Redistribution of the rainfall, so some areas get less and some get more and some areas don't change at all. There's a lot of misinformation on the web about it on both sides of the topic, but it's not worth debating. The only way we'll resolve Global Warming and every other problem in the world is if we decrease the earth's population by half or somehow convince people return to a nomadic lifestyle and that'll never happen. It's hard enough to convince people in Las Vegas stop growing grass in their yards.Jim_H wrote:@gummo
Could be, just as it could not be, given that there have been worse droughts before, as Liz states. This year was not a drought for most of the upper basin states, as the lakes are rising and the snowpack is still high. Actually, except for NM, there is not really a drought in the upper basin states.
Or the scenario laid out in Larry Niven's and Jerry Pournelle's 'Lucifer's Hammer:' a comet hitting earth would do the trick, but would probably be much less enjoyable than global thermonuclear war.RedRoxx44 wrote:@gummo
I am of the cheerful persuasion that one day someone will press the wrong button, or a genie will get out of a bottle and wipe out a lot of people. Yes, I read a lot of sci-fi-- ;) ---and that will solve the problem!
