Another Dust Bowl?

 

What      is the likelihood of another Dust Bowl-scale drought in the future?      No one is yet able to scientifically predict multi-year or decadal      droughts, but the paleoclimatic record can tell us how frequently      droughts such as the 1930s Dust Bowl occurred in the past or      if droughts of this magnitude are indeed a rare event. If such      droughts occurred with some regularity in the past, then we should      expect them to occur in the future."
