Side by side comparison of drought conditions---today and 1934, a Dust Bowl year....

Here are side by side comparisons of drought conditions today and 1934, a Dust Bowl year.

A stark reminder of how bad the conditions really were back then.  Keep in mind how much MORE the average person depended on agriculture (directly or indirectly) as compared to today.  I look at this and can feel their fear!!

  1. Yeah, but is there any correlation between economic conditions and the weather?
    Specifically, is there any causality such that an economy in depression leads to drought?
    And if so, is it a reflection of God's displeasure or simply a consequence of everyday economic behavior carried to an extreme?
