    But the current drought has an evil human footprint, even if is only an eight as bad!

    Go to Figure 1 and check the brown curve labeled “Natural Cycle” which had a major peak around 1935, a dip around 1980 and a minor peak around 2020. This natural cycle was based on temperature cycles found in the Camp Century ice cores, but the pattern does roughly fit the unadjusted US temperature records you have posted.

    An even more astounding piece of history is that Camp Century was just a cover story for Project Iceworm, a secret military base and Cold War missile launch silo hidden under the Greenland Ice sheet. Seems the Climate Scientists always did have powerful friends 🙂

    You can see the difference between ordinary drought and climate change induced drought in this. In the 1930s most of the drought was over Republican states and people recognized it as normal variation. Today the drought is concentrated over libtards who know its because of climate change.
