The latest big drought lie is that the 2012 drought is the worst since the 1950s – which is complete nonsense. In 1988 the drought was so bad that they had to shut down the Mississippi River because it ran out of water. They were even talking about diverting water out of the great lakes.
There is plenty of water in the Mississippi this year. Drought data in 2012 is inflated, just like all other climate data.
