Michigan and Bangalore: Global Warming Goes Global
Not Just in the US and India — It’s Global
The Centers of Continents Start to Dry Out
And it’s not just in the United States and India.
Each year now, such summertime stories tend to be increasingly frequent from all continents — from Europe and Asia, South America and both East and West Africa… from Italy, Brazil and China, and from Gambia on Africa’s Atlantic coast to Somalia on Africa’s Horn protruding into the Indian Ocean.
And in the southern hemisphere?
It’s winter there, of course, but the news is often about the same:
Just as a years-long drought in eastern Australia appears to be easing, parts of Western Australia report the driest year on record — hitting hard both east and south of the city of Perth, where dams are reported registering record low inflows, with inevitable stress on annual crops expected by agricultural boards.
Antarctica’s crops, of course, have not been vegetable.
They’ve been more giant icebergs breaking off as warming ocean currents continue to insinuate their way in under huge ice-shelves.
A truly global sort of news is emerging — as most of the world’s climate scientists predicted a quarter century ago.
Monitoring stations worldwide report a general pattern over recent years of the centers of continents beginning to dry out.
