NYT 2004 : Unnatural Drought Not As Bad As Natural Drought

A glimpse into the spectacularly disordered mind of warmists :

This drought still isn’t as dire as the one from 1900 to 1904. But everything in the West has changed since 1904. In fact, everything has changed since 1976, when two wet decades led to an almost unimaginable explosion of development and population across the region, an explosion that, in some places, is rapidly drawing down underground aquifers. In the short run, that pace of growth is unsustainable. In the long run, the question is whether the West can sustain even the growth it has managed so far.

While there is some comfort in learning that periodic droughts are a part of natural climate change, the fact is this drought is occurring at a time when climate change is being driven by unnatural global warming. Drought may be normal, and yet there may be nothing historically normal about this drought.

    If I recall most of that development was about people going to places like Phoenix and Vegas to retire…in the sun.

    Why is it when global warming is so bad that people like retiring in sunny warm places?
