The ‘Perfect Storm’ – Against Freedom
05 Sunday Aug 2012
Here in western New Mexico it is monsoon season, a time when we should get over 8 inches of rain in July alone, but instead, we have gotten an inch and 1/2. The humidity says it should rain, averaging 50- 60% on a daily basis. This time of year I worry about mud and strong winds from thunderstorms, pushing over corn crops, but not this year. This year I have to constantly water the entire garden a couple of times a week.
Like most of the country, See Map, we are in an extended drought, which will probably get much worse.
Is the drought a result of natural forces, or is something else afoot? The following video is one theory on what is happening.
