Anyone else think the descriptions on D3 and D4 should be switched?

Extreme seems like it should be the worst to me.

This is exactly why I have a strategic reserve of draught beer in my backyard. In case of drought. If shiat gets bad, y'all can come over to my house.

The legend doesn't say what the color black represents. Is it, "Here there be dragons?"

Wait-- are they saying that being hot and dry increases the likelihood of being on fire?

Is there a pie chart? I have to present this to the youth group.

Didn't the southwest have a drought last year too? Or is this still the same one, continued?

Aha! When there's no rain, things get dry and they burn more easily!

Excuse me for being cynical, but unless I'm missing something all that map is saying is deserts are dry.

I drove through south Texas a few years ago. It's tumbleweeds and howling wind, been that way for many years I hear.

Arizona and Nevada are dry? Yes, Mr Holmes. They once made an 8 hour video game where you drive through them. Not trying to downplay climate change, but tell me what I'm missing.

I believe the Southwest had higher-than-average Monsoon rains last year as well

A quick glance at total Monthly Rainfall (1968-2021) in Texas tells me

this isn't a bad year at all

But that would be trouble and expense, and we can't make the Indians and the Chinese do it, so there's no point.
But take comfort in the fact that for a few brief, shining moments, shareholder value will be maximized, and a bunch of fat bourgies in their mom's basements won't be inconvenienced.
At least until they choke to death.

It's pretty simple it's not rocket science and yeah I'm usually right about s*** I missed the assassination of Obama in his second term

But other than that yeah I pretty much called it since the 70s about pretty much everything

little bit off I did I knew it was coming but I didn't think I'd live to see it but close enough

Thinks are getting worse faster. This shiatshow is far from over.
Any more predictions BTW?
Mine are:
- Rich people get even richer, the poor even poorer
- Climate change will mean more deaths than we've seen to date
- Viruses will get worse and kill more
- Power outages will become normal
Water shortages will become normal
- No-one will campaign on the streets for change as people are apathetic sheep who will only piss and moan about it on facebook and then still vote against their own self interests

Tell me I'm wrong....

Homelessness will triple or quadruple over the next five years
we will lose our democracy, because we ave failed to educate people
EV batteries will be Ecological disaster
we will regret building nuclear power plants, when they are Target of War

man you definitely got that right

and when I got to the Artesian bath house it was dead dead dead

I emptied my cigarette butts on to the f****** Street

I haven't done that in four decades
