It must be that new kind of drought, which is very wet.

    I’ve just has an idea.
    Every single time someone from the AGW makes a prediction. Ask them if they want to Bet $1000 of their own money to a charity that what they are saying will come true.

    Joe would have had a perfect record if it wasn’t for all that “climate change” rain 😉
    And besides he is as accurate as the climate liar extraordinaire Mickey Mann.

  3. Ken says:

    The little rainstorm in the photo is just weather. The dust storm is climate.

    No, wait a minute. The dust is just weather. The rain is climate.

    Now I am all confused!

    Same in California where severe droughts are common historically. Much of the state is arid. The probem now is the population of California is new 40 million… 4 times what it was in the 50’s. The natural climate in California was not meant to sustain that many people, green lawns, swimming pools, golf courses, etc. etc. etc. The climate has not changed. The numbers have. Hard to pipe in enough water.

    • KTM says:

      California has been allowed to squander the West’s water resources for too long, and it’s time they get cut off. None of the states upstream of California can build desalinization plants, while California has an immense coastline at its disposal but refuses to take responsibility for their own water needs.

      If Karma has anything to offer, perhaps Eco-conscious California will pump all of its groundwater dry, triggering a cataclysmic earthquake in the San Andreas fault, and slide into the sea.

      “The climate has not changed. The numbers have.”

      You make more sense than all the CAGW alarmist in California put together.

    Joe Romm is an idiot. This is just more evidence of that fact.

  6. Oh, oh, oh, EXTREME WEATHER!!! Yeah, that’s the ticket!

  7. Robertv says:

    All those poor drivers must have been thinking that it was a mirage .

    until it was too late

  8. Andy DC says:

    The “People’s Climate Conference” will solve all the problems, everyone will get perfect rainfall. If anyone had any doubts about “climate change” being a VERY far left political agenda, all you have to do is see that title. Right out of the Lenin/Marx/Trotsky playbook.

    • Heh. They’ll probably pass the People’s Five-Year Plan for weather.

      I have a bookmarked a page with the same kind of old time Communist lunacy. It seems to have been discussed a decade ago on Radio Prague:

      … in the 1970s and 1980s, when the idea of man mastering nature and adjusting it to his needs was a communist catch cry.

      There was even a song:

      We’ll command the wind and the rain
      when it is to rain and when it is to blow

      Not even the dumbest things will ever go away if they can warm a Progressive heart, won’t they?

  9. Send Al to the Pole says:

    Some years ago I watched a program on the installation of large precast box culverts in Phoenix. They were specifically for handling drainage during flash floods. You would have to wonder if it makes sense for them to set up massive subterranean storage for water. I don’t think you’d want it exposed to evaporation, and they would need to be able to dredge periodically.

    • Jason Calley says:

      In parts of Texas, the local authorities, (with the cooperation of area cavers) mapped out the size and location of numerous sink holes, especially those that seemed to show signs of possible passage systems continuing from them. They drainage of storm runnoff was routed into the sink holes, thus killing two birds with one stone so-to-speak. The area aquifer was replenished and possibly damaging floods were averted.

    By the time Joe gets to Phoenix

    By the time Joe gets to Phoenix water’s rising
    He may find the note left floatin’ by the door
    He’ll laugh when he reads the part that says I’m swimmin’
    ‘Cause I’ve never swam in this town before.

    By the time I make Albuquerque Joe’ll be working
    Makin’ up stories about climate as rain starts to fall.
    But he’ll just keep on saying that its droughtin’
    Oh the rainfall, that’s all

    By the time I make Oklahoma more storms a’brewin’
    He’ll turn quickly and call “Permanent Drought!” out loud
    And he’ll cry just to think its flood and a deluge
    Tho’ all the times doctors try to tell him so
    He just didn’t know, Joe should really go.

    Which apologies to Glen Campbell and Jimmy Web fans.

  11. Ken says:

    Here is a drought history plot from a source that is (so far) outside of the reach of those who would change our history. This is from Oklahoma. I remember the drought of the 50’s very well. One day the front page of one of the Oklahoma City newspapers had a photo of a man standing on the sun-baked, cracked bottom of the water-supply lake, looking up at a 14-foot aluminum fishing boat dangling from a dock.
