The effects of the Dustbowl II: This time it’s Digital are beginning to be felt ever more broadly. The Southern half of the country is in full-out drought, those of us in the upper Midwest are on the precipice — and since the so-called ‘heartland’ has got more than a week of temperatures well into the 90s and no precipitation to look forward to, it is only getting worse.
It won’t, of course.
Taking climate change seriously might help, but it’s easier to just call Al Gore fat or blame gay people for getting married, because clearly Pat Robertson’s going that route any day now.
UPDATE: This is unrelated — but awful.
