21 Nov 2007 Time Magazine on Drought, 2007 Versus 1974
Time magazine, November 26, 2007 (Michael Grunwald):
[Georgia’s] drought was a natural event transformed into a natural disaster by human folly. And while it’s still hard to say whether global warming caused any particular drought or flood or fire, it’s going to cause more of all of them.
Time magazine, June 24, 1974:
In Africa, drought continues for the sixth consecutive year, adding terribly to the toll of famine victims… Climatological Cassandras are becoming increasingly apprehensive, for the weather aberations they are studying may be the harbinger of another ice age.
