Study: Climate change didn't cause drought

Extreme natural events, not man-made climate change, led to last summer's historic drought in the Great Plains, a new federal study said Friday.

Drought occurred in six Plains states between last May and August because moist Gulf of Mexico air "failed to stream northward in late spring," and summer storms were few and stingy with rainfall, said a report by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"Neither ocean states nor human-induced climate change, factors that can provide long-lead predictability, appeared to play significant roles in causing severe rainfall deficits over the major corn producing regions of central Great Plains," the report summary said.

    A creative and interesting article headline is essential. Headlines with interest will be much more alluring than boring ones. Take the time to consider different ideas before settling on a headline. Even ask some friends and family which one’s they like.:

    When getting involved in affiliate promotion, it’s important to work with an affiliate company that has products you truly believe in and would be happy to promote and sell. Having many affiliates is important to your income stream, but look around for partners you want to do business with. Don’t work with just anybody; make sure that you do thorough research so you know that you are with the right people.^
