Drought? That's just a theory.

It is a plot perpetrated by the dolphins & whales, I knew it!

I would actually like to see some of this drought I've been hearing about. I live in the Atlanta area, and this has got to be one of the wettest summers I've ever seen. Seriously - I have to cut grass twice a week. It's insane.
 
2012-07-29 09:22:18 AM  
Don't you mean Global Warming is shrinking that dead zone, or is that only when it's bad?

Can't we just bubble air down there? You know, for the sake of the fish and lobsters.

It would be more econically to ban farming instead.

Much of the country, especially the midwest, went through a protracted drought. We did in Louisiana, too, although we've had lots of rain recently. It takes a while for a drought way up where the Mississippi forms to affect the Gulf.

edmo: Drought? That's just a theory.


Yeah, and any scientist who actively opposes the "enviro drought" theory has been smeared with many false claims. These falsehoods are typical of those who promote the unproven theory that it is the recent lack of rain fall that is responsible for the drought that has been in progress since the Eocene.

Illinois. I haven't mowed my lawn since the beginning of June. It's all brown. Come to think of it, I can't remember the last time I heard a lawnmower on my street. Last year I was mowing it once a week.

Bring some of this drought to Texas, please. Or global warming or whatever people are making up today.
 
2012-07-29 09:35:57 AM  
What drought? I wish the damn rain would stop. 100 degree heat with 100% humidity SUCKS!

"The historic drought baking the nation's breadbasket is about to hit American consumers where it hurts most - the supermarket checkout."
 
2012-07-29 09:46:17 AM  
So, next year if it rains normally, there will be a bigger dead zone because this year's silt and fertilizer will be washed into the gulf. Let's panic for the end of the drought!
 
2012-07-29 09:57:23 AM  
SuperTramp: "The historic drought baking the nation's breadbasket is about to hit American consumers where it hurts most - the supermarket checkout."



Americans already eat too much. Farming subsidies maintain abnormally low food prices. The answer is right here. Let natural forces correct the market.

During the second world war and immediately after, deaths from heart disease in the nazi occupied territories dropped significantly. This was due to shortages of high cholesterol foods such as bacon and cheese and eggs. People were reduced to having nothing but whole grain breadcakes for breakfast.

-- which seems a bit of a digression, but it only goes to show the unseen benefits that may arise from adversity. Who knows what good will come with a few degrees temperature increase?

Short Version:
Global Warming? Just STFU and eat your muffin.

Couldn't possibly be related to less run-off. That's just a liberal myth.
 
2012-07-29 10:08:23 AM  
It's a big country, chances are good that part of it will experience either drought or flooding every year. Haven't seen any credible sources tying a smaller dead zone to climate change but here we sit in a thread with that very concept being discussed by non-specialists.

Good to see the Fark patrol is on the case.

We just did route66.

The drought is just staggering through the midwest.

This thread is hilarious. Libs and eco-loons on here are absolutely straining to say "this proves global warming". But they can't, because they know it will be thrown back at them next time the US goes though a cold patch. So they try to "ironically" hint at it in a deniable way. It's amazing anyone ever believes what losers like this say.
 
2012-07-29 10:20:05 AM  
The consortium said the dead zone is relatively small this year because record drought across the country meant fewer nutrients were washed into the river - not because needed steps have been taken to prevent the runoff.

Meaning when we DO eventually get the big rains the dead zone will be gargantuan...

We have really been getting rained on here in the burbs of NYC. Everything is bright green. We had a brief dry spell at the end of June and begining of July but it's been raining at least every other day since. Grass is growing like crazy.

Drought is real in the northeastern United States and everyone knows that's the only part of the country that matters (and is home to the Jewish-owned lamestream media).

When you announce your intention to put somebody in ignore, you are going to want to see their response. In order to do this, you have to actually not put them on ignore (or put them on then take them off). Consequently, comments such as yours are always a lie. Also against Fark's posting guidelines.
