Scientific American apparently believes we didn’t used to have droughts before oil companies, and that droughts should be named after them.
I propose the Sir Francis Drake Drought.
And we also need an Anasazi Drought.
“Mega droughts have been verified by science. Carbon dating combined with dendrochronology — the study of tree rings — has determined the Southwest suffered from 14 mega droughts punctured sometimes with a couple years of normal precipitation spanning from 50 to 100 years stretching from 800 to 1600 AD.”
