Such a drought would bring major water shortages and dry conditions that could lead to wildfires, the researchers warned.

“We really need to start thinking in longer-term horizons about how we’re going to manage it,” Toby R.

    Part of the ObAmalek scheme to cripple the USA and assert total control of our lives.
