But as long as the fossil fuel industry continues to profit...all is good and these petty, inconsequential side effects do not matter.Fossil fuels rule and just screw everything else already. As long as they die rich on Planet Titanic...they do not care....even denying their children a future...it matters not to them.

I would have thought that a devastating drought was an environmental crisis.

Could the destruction of forest in South America be part of the problem?

I fear that there is much worse to come unless action is taken to reverse global warming.

Global warming, climate change: big problem & no solution. Unless this isn't taken seriously we are already in disaster mode

This is terible. The unstable weather patterns should make those who have water to conserve and keep it clean.
