'Megadrought' emerging in the western US might be worse than any in 1,200 years

Fueled in part by human-caused climate change, a “megadrought” appears to be emerging in the western U.S., a study published Thursday suggests.
In fact, the nearly-20-year drought is almost as bad or worse than any in the past 1,200 years, scientists say. 
Megadroughts – defined as intense droughts that last for decades or longer – once plagued the Desert Southwest. Thanks to global warming, an especially fierce one appears to be coming back:
"We now have enough observations of current drought and tree-ring records of past drought to say that we're on the same trajectory as the worst prehistoric droughts," said study lead author A. Park Williams, a bioclimatologist at Columbia University, in a statement. This is “a drought bigger than what modern society has seen." 
Scientists say that about half of this historic drought can be blamed on man-made global warming. Some of the impacts today include shrinking reservoirs and worsening wildfire seasons. 
A drought in 2011 parched O.C. Fisher Lake in San Angelo, Texas. Fueled in part by human-caused climate change, a “megadrought” appears to be emerging in the western U.S., a study published Thursday suggests.

Since temperatures are projected to keep rising, it is likely the drought will continue for the near future – or fade briefly only to return, researchers say.
The study covers an area stretching across nine U.S. states from Oregon and Montana down through California, New Mexico and part of northern Mexico.
Daniel Swain, a UCLA climate scientist who wasn’t part of the study, called the research important because it provides evidence “that human-caused climate change transformed what might have otherwise been a moderate long-term drought into a severe event comparable to the ‘megadroughts’ of centuries past.”
Williams said that "because the background is getting warmer, the dice are increasingly loaded toward longer and more severe droughts. We may get lucky, and natural variability will bring more precipitation for a while. 
"But going forward, we'll need more and more good luck to break out of drought, and less and less bad luck to go back into drought," he said.
Williams said the region could stay dry for centuries. "That's not my prediction right now, but it's possible." 
Naturally occurring western megadroughts have taken place many times before. In fact, most of the USA's droughts of the past century, even the 1930s Dust Bowl that forced migrations of Oklahomans and others from the Plains, "were exceeded in severity and duration multiple times by droughts during the preceding 2,000 years," the National Climate Assessment said.
The difference now, of course, is the western USA is home to more than 70 million people who weren't here for the previous medieval megadroughts. The implications are far more daunting.
University of Michigan environment dean Jonathan Overpeck, who studies southwestern climate and was not part of the study, calls this drought “the first observed multidecadal megadrought in recorded U.S. history.”
To identify past droughts, scientists studied thousands of tree rings to find out how much – or little – rain fell hundreds of years ago. Scientists used historical data in combination with several computer model simulations to reach their conclusions. 
One additional worrisome fact from the study was that the 20th century was the wettest century in the entire 1,200-year record. It was during that time that the population boomed in the western U.S., and that has continued.
"The 20th century gave us an overly optimistic view of how much water is potentially available," said study co-author Benjamin Cook, a NASA climate scientist, in a statement.
"It goes to show that studies like this are not just about ancient history," he said. "They're about problems that are already here."
The study was published Thursday in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

michael guist of swamp people dies....

Well Michael Guist of the swamp people , died...apparently he  fell over the side of the boat....... Personally i did not think he was that  famous..... But apparently  the history channel  did  three seasons  on people  living in the bayou ......who the hell would wants to live there ). Now as i see it is  absolute ,shit  apart  from a  few, i mean a a few  channels,......... But i got to thinking, is  the history channel  so desperate all they can do is  film a reality TV about  people living in a  swamp....... This  shows you how bad reality TV has gotten ,when the history channel and  the swamp has  nothing to do with history.......well it  could be  if you look at how old it is , but  its  not about the age of the swamp its about people living in swamp ........ Are people reaching an all time low  here in  media, i mean what the hell exciting can be done in a swamp    apart from dying of course  that's up there ...... But the swamp ...i mean  how  do these  guy

geez there is a shocker

Gee ya think only 43 pissed of with china ../////I would think the planet would be  fucking pissed at their  shennanigans ……….  43 countries criticize China at UN for repression of Uyghurs EDITH M. LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the

  As i do not like the smell of  weed/dope/smoke......it reminds me of  too many things .....but that's not all....... i  cannot get rid of the smell in places  like cigarettes ......but that in not the  crux of the rant........weed  does something to the transponders  ........although i guess it has  spawned  many songs/babies/deaths/symphonies  ...as we all know conductors are stoners....... ......paintings /artwork/car crashes ........fuck -ups /and of  course the legendary munchies .........i once  watched  a man  devour a mixing bowl of rice krispies ....high as fuck ......epic performance !!!!!!....we never   had  man versus food then .......but that would be a  winner .....but weed it has  its pros and cons ....i don't like it .....never  have  ...i don't like putting smoke or  things in my lungs ....i don't like  getting high ....it usually leads  to paranoia...and i get leery ....so best left alone i think .......if i get high  am not in control and that is not
