WE'RE GOING TO BE A DESERT?
Big article in the paper yesterday about how New Mexico (and probably a number of other western states) will turn into dust bowls because we haven't been able to hold on to the record breaking rains and snows we had this past winter. So today we got some snow. It's been in the 70's all week, but today it snowed. The newspaper article didn't explain how we were supposed to retain all that water. I've always thought it seeped through the earth and helped fill our water table. Seems I'd heard that somewhere before. So much for a leaky memory. (groan-ed.) On the other hand, it might be that global warming is setting in with a vengeance. And no, global warming does not mean neccessarily that it will heat up where you live. Terry Tamminen can define it for you in his fine book, Lives Per Gallon.
