Today, most of Texas is facing an extreme or, is in the highest category of drought. Last month, of the 242 counties in Texas, 202 of them were on fire simultaneously. Last August, in Russia, the largest drought, followed by the largest fires in their history, resulted in the removal of all the grain from Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan from world markets, leading to the historic all-time spike in food prices. These events have been just within the last 12 months.
And the scientists are now in a shift; theoretic saying that, if you ask the question, would these events have occurred in the absence of manmade global warming, the answer is almost certainly no.
