A few months back, I was given grief by a person who is concerned about droughts increasing. This, upon my posting peer-reviewed research, which shows that:
Droughts were worse in the past.
Droughts were NOT increasing / have NO increasing trend.
She posted a portion of what looked like an article, about a person who said 'it is happening again.' comments.deviantart.com/1/4446…
To that end, I provide this chart. It looks like:
Droughts happen a LOT in Oklahoma.
The most recent one is nowhere near as bad as several which happened LONG BEFORE CO2 PASSED THE OSTENSIBLY 'SAFE' LEVEL OF 350PPM (which it did in 1988, the year they really began screaming about weather we have always experienced).
And that's all I have time for this morning.
