Is this another one of the "common" occurrences that we should not put down to global warming?

Is it going to get worse in the future when the population spirals and there is even less fertile soil?

And some of the dust could be radioactive - that's comforting, NOT!

I say we might as well accept that we are all doomed and live like we don't have a long future ahead of us.

Dust storms are common, but most never make it to the coast and this one is unusual for it's size and coverage. Large cropping areas have probably heavily contributed to it, unlike the smaller farms of the past which had tree on most of their fence lines and wood lots between properties, now they are just vast open areas and with the unending drought, more of this will be the only outcome. It may get even worse as we are yet to enter the summer, with constant hot nth westerly winds and as the paddocks are bare with no vegetation, there's only one outcome.

Considering Aus is just about the only country on the planet which is not constantly rebuilding its soil, because we don't have high mountain ranges, we are looking at not being able to grow anything the other side of the divide and most coastal food growing area's have been turned into suburbs. Add to that there is no water out there any longer and out one and only mountain range is drying up, it's all good for calamity.

Don't worry about global warming or being overrun by over seas primitive, there will be nothing here for them to take over but dead polluted land.

Oh dear, cheer up mate, it is not that bad.
It sounds like you are letting the Cult of the Globe Warming get into your head.
Be careful.

It is precisely because of my cynical contempt for religion and politics that I do believe that global warming and over-population will continue to worsen until nothing can be done about it.
