Climate Scientists Prove That Drought Is Not Caused By CO2

The Dust Bowl — the seven-year drought that devastated large swathes of US prairie land in the 1930s — was the worst prolonged environmental disaster recorded for the country. But a study of the American Southwest’s more distant climatic past reveals that the catastrophic drought was a mere dry spell compared to the ‘mega-droughts’ that were recurring long before humans began to settle the continent.

Empirical evidence does not lend much support to the notion that climate is headed precipitately toward more extreme heat and drought. The drought of 1999 covered a smaller area than the 1988 drought, when the Mississippi almost dried up. And 1988 was a temporary inconvenience as compared with repeated droughts during the 1930s “Dust Bowl” that caused an exodus from the prairies, as chronicled in Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath.

Hansen :

The 350 ppm drought was nothing like the 310 ppm drought, which was nothing like the 280 ppm drought. Maybe we need more CO2 to eliminate droughts completely?

    Are they trying to say that Native Americans are not humans? There were Native Americans in the Southwest during the “megadrought” of the 13th Century.

    • Mike Davis says:

      Those that lived through the droughts learned to adapt to natural events.
      The question that could be asked is were those that stole the land from the earlier settlers “Human”?
      The North and South American continent were settled by the so called natives during and just after the last Glacial Maximum and were actually transients because very few actually built permanent settlements and those who did were displaced by weather conditions or wars amongst the so called natives that lived by adapting to extreme conditions!
