Anomalous drought struck the United States after severe frosts


Another natural anomaly hit the United States after severe frosts in the winter of the 2020/2021 season. This time it's about drought. 70 million US residents have already suffered from a new natural disaster in the first ten days of March, writes the American newspaper USA Today, citing data from the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS).


Scientists informed the public that the drought has covered the vast majority of the western United States (almost 90% of the area). The threat looms over the crops and forests. The observed drought has become the worst over the past two decades.

However, many climatologists believe that the United States is not faced with a common phenomenon, but a "mega-drought", ie. intense drought that can last for decades. The last time it was like this was 1200 years ago and the forecasts of experts are disappointing.

The states hit the hardest: California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado. More than 90% of the lands of these American regions are in the drought zone and precipitation is not expected in the near future. Drought maps are updated weekly.


We remind you that in February 2021 in the southern state of Texas from monstrous by local standards of cold weather, comparable to the temperature in Alaska, dozens of people died, the housing and communal services system collapsed and a lot of material damage was caused.

    Mother nature gives what she deserves. This is their notorious shale revolution. Tolley will still be and will be even worse if they do not change their minds.

      Has the link between the oil shale revolution and severe frosts already been proven? I doubt however.

        The existence of God is also not proven, but almost everyone believes that he is. Personally, I believe that nature is alive and it rewards for mocking itself. Everything in our world is interconnected.

          The main question of philosophy, the primacy of being or consciousness.
          In nature (matter), everything is really interconnected. Then what has God got to do with it?
          Almost everyone believes that he is? - You just do not crucify "almost all" here. Only for yourself, individually.

            Xuli (o) Tebenado, in order to answer this question about God, you need to formulate - what is God. So far, no one has succeeded in doing this.

              Stop. Let's leave the discussion of God and his presence (absence) for later.
              The opus deals with the weather in the USA. Many scientists believe that the weather on Earth depends on the activity of the Sun. And a person cannot influence this activity in any way. Therefore, the weather and its freaks are on their own.
              The shale revolution and its impact on nature is a different topic.
              Let's stop at that.

        Turn on the heating in the house in summer and turn it off in winter. That's how Mother Earth is.

      Not. Don't get it. To repeat Russian 1917 and Soviet 1991 is clearly weak for them.
      What kind of god is in Russia? - "ticket of the Bank of Russia"? Atheists-communists-atheists, Christ-sellers.
      And on $$$ it says "In God we trust", so you can't wait.

    Instead of bombing Syria, bomb your canals, maybe it will help, well, or build desalination plants, the Jews will help you ...

      Who is bombing Syria is a controversial issue.
      But I know for sure that they will build desalination plants much faster than in Crimea.

    The threat looms over the crops and forests.

    So soon the entire information space will be filled with messages about the taiga burning in Russia. yes
    In general, we have so, the winter is frosty - it means the summer will be hot. Why should it be different there?

      Yes, yes, and all the profits from its sale will rush to offshores even faster with "hurray! Hurray! Hurray!"

    Actually, it is possible Karma is pursuing the United States for their order to Ukraine not to provide water for Crimea. And in Crimea, according to some sources, the Holy Grail is located in the Crimean Mountains (in the national park).

      Perhaps this "Karma" - it looks like a stick: it always has two ends.
      And when it rains in central Russia in June-July-August, and the potatoes are the size of a tangerine, then I will remember this very karma.

    When in July-August 2010 the central part of Russia melted at + 40 + 42, and Moscow was suffocating from the burning of smoldering peat bogs, many alert and anxious comrades seriously argued that it was the United States that was testing climate weapons, and that some obscure object was located in Alaska spoiling the weather on Earth.
    If this logic is followed, then now the United States froze itself, and then dried it up. So what's in Alaska, alarming?

      Here many commentators remind me of prehistoric people. Those, too, and in the same way, being unable to explain all natural phenomena, invented for themselves different gods (or one god). But all this has nothing to do with the topic of weather anomalies in the United States, so I leave various discussions on topics of theology and theology to them for personal communication.

    I wonder if we didn’t have a hand in these climatic cataclysms in the United States? Painfully, they play into our hands. After all those nasty things that they do to us, such an answer just suggests itself and looks apocalyptic at the same time. After all, only God can let nature fall on you. And this, it turns out, is us. Equal to God, or what? Interesting.
