I recall in June that a meteorologist quipped that if we got no more rain this year, we’d be back up to 75% of normal water table levels. And this was considering we’d just ended a long drought.
Who knew that that little quip would be so prescient. Since late June we haven’t had hardly a drop of rain. I don’t know about your garden and your lawn, but mine are exhibiting signs of stress.
These weather extremes are the direct result of climate change. A UN report links global temperature rises “with near certainty” to human activity.
