It is dry in Minnesota this summer after a wet winter. It is dry in other places. It is wet in some places. But trust the climate change crowd, we are seeing unprecedented warmth and drought. Hmm, wonder how to square that with this chart going back over a hundred years and based on US data. Sure looks like there have always been cycles of dry and wet times and the current one isn’t unprecedented in any way. If anything, recent decades have seen less drought than the early and mid-1900s.
