Fears Of A "Return Of The 1930s Dust Bowl" Rise As Record Drought Sizzles South

• Zero Hedge

The United States Drought Monitor publishes weekly data that shows the Western U.S. is in a historic drought.

The latest Drought Monitor map shows for Mar. 4, "Dry conditions dominated much of the West and especially the Southwest and into the Plains." 

Extreme to exceptional drought conditions are seen across 57% and 90% of the land in Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, and diminishing snowpack could jeopardize drinking water for tens of millions of people from Denver to Los Angeles.
