It seems to me I have read about droughts happening for thousands of years at various times. Sometimes they last a few years or a decade. Many of our large population centers are built in areas that are very arid to begin with. They were built there because people like to live where the weather is nice, not always raining. This article is calling for sea levels to rise and contaminate ground water. I wonder how the people in Texas and the mid-west feel about a drought. We have been told over and over that "weather" is not "climate". Now they are going back on that meme.
