When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

So, a state department overreacts; what else is new?

How about ANY experiment for climate change mitigation, find one yet?

But this has the globe..

A new NASA study shows Earth's climate likely will continue to warm during this century on track with previous estimates.

This research hinges on a new and more detailed calculation of the sensitivity of Earth's climate to the factors that cause it to change, such as greenhouse gas emissions. Earth is likely to experience roughly 20 percent more warming than estimates that were largely based on surface temperature observations during the past 150 years.

Read:..climate scientists specifically predicted a decade ago that Arctic ice loss would bring on worse droughts in the West — and California is now in the death-grip of a brutal, record-breaking drought, driven by the very change in the jet stream that scientists had anticipated.
But Holdren’s main point is the important one — quite separate from any changes in precipitation that climate change may cause, there is little dispute that human-caused climate change is worsening droughts in the West and Southwest. I recommend his entire paper to readers interested in this important subject.

So, spaceballs, what caused the Dust Bowl?

You are merely shooting from the hip. Get real about the science.
Academia laughs at those that use and reference wikipedia.
Most professors give failing grades when it is cited as a source.

LOL

Because you have no idea about the university rules, you are confusing some things like referencing Wikipedia and getting grades. The references in the Wikipedia are there to validate.

Sure, I quote here from Wikipedia.

"k?" What's that?

Not sure what planet you are from but wikipedia IS NOT an accepted reference by academia because it is posted freely. Although references are cited the posts are NOT peer reviewed and as such are considered unreliable. Even the references can be made up or unreliable. Maybe this could be a stepping stone for though but should not be the basis of your debate.
Of course maybe your government granted "higher" education institution allows such. Real researchers use peer reviewed documentation which is why there is not laboratory documented proof that man has in FACT caused global warming. It is all speculation and theory. Theories are backed by documented evidence that can be repeated over and over again.

How did people cause the Dust Bowl?*crickets*

Well perhaps you might like John Kerry's quote: "Climate Change is 'the world's most fearsome weapon of mass destruction" ,'The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand,' Kerry said.'We don't have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society,'
Maybe the mistake was climate change should have been called a WMD instead of global warming then you would be quite happy to do something about it.

Here, we show that the inclusion of forcing from human land degradation during the period, in addition to the anomalous SSTs, is necessary to reproduce the anomalous features of the Dust Bowl drought.

I don't know how many million times you have posted this line over the years and it is still meaningless as the first post. So I will post the results of my own lil experiment where it easily translates to yours. If you are filling a bucket of water and you don't want it to overflow, the best way to mitigate that is TURN OFF THE TAP! The same results apply elsewhere in physics if you don't want that same bucket of water to boil, turn off the heat source.
My guess is, that the right part of your brain will kick in here and none of that will get through.

Exactly right! They picked a poor example when the main cause was every man & his dog ploughing up paddocks with not even the slightest concern on it's impact on the environment. Once again its Man's involvement with nature with no holds barred, just as it is happening in the Amazon rain forests and other countries with dig it up, cut em down money making schemes.

<quoted text>You make up your own facts. Try to learn what happens under the modern man-made climate change.
Wikipedia: Two main factors contribute to observed sea level rise.[9] The first is thermal expansion: as ocean water warms, it expands.[10] The second is from the melting of major stores of land ice like glaciers and ice sheets.
Sea level rise is one of several lines of evidence that support the view that the climate has recently warmed.[11]
Compare NOAA and Wikipedia, NOAA says:

"The two major causes of global sea-level rise are thermal expansion caused by the warming of the oceans (since water expands as it warms) and the loss of land-based ice (such as glaciers and polar ice caps) due to increased melting."

Then, the evidence line follows:

"Records and research show that sea level has been steadily rising at a rate of 1 to 2.5 millimeters (0.04 to 0.1 inches) per year since 1900.

This rate may be increasing. Since 1992, new methods of satellite altimetry (the measurement of elevation or altitude) indicate a rate of rise of 3 millimeters (0.12 inches) per year.

This is a significantly larger rate than the sea-level rise averaged over the last several thousand years."

The difference is the citing of references in the Wikipedia quote. That's important for further learning.

How High Will It Go?

Most predictions say the warming of the planet will continue and likely will accelerate. Oceans will likely continue to rise as well, but predicting the amount is an inexact science. A recent study says we can expect the oceans to rise between 2.5 and 6.5 feet (0.8 and 2 meters) by 2100, enough to swamp many of the cities along the U.S. East Coast. More dire estimates, including a complete meltdown of the Greenland ice sheet, push sea level rise to 23 feet (7 meters), enough to submerge London and Los Angeles.

The Statue of Liberty is in jeopardy.

Exacty so, there are no experiments showing either fracking causing earthquakes, climate change mitigation or man made climate change. Wait for the science to catch up to the hype.

Funny, I thought it was the drought that started it.
