You can tell its an issue for the critters. My backyard birdbath has become increasingly popular as a watering hole for any/every animal that is in the area. Seems every time I look out my window, one animal or another is drinking the water.

Those guys are lucky to have water supplies from suburban uses. The animals in more wild areas have got to be hurting.
My favorite hidden pond in Steven's Canyon has been very sad my last 3 visits.
Its going to be an unavoidably tough Summer for critters.

In the last 500 years there has been several periods of drought, you can prove this by reading the rings of old growth timber. Just be mindful of water usage, this will come to pass.

So correct, just like global warming and global cooling.

Sadly, the course of current global warming is not at all likely to resolve itself with a period of global cooling as anonymous from Mont Loma would have us believe - unless we all act together to take some serious corrective actions. The science is not in dispute. It's wishful thinking to assume the current situation is self-correcting.

@Member, show use your scientific facts. Yeah, you don't have anything. Where as mother nature has been doing this for millennia. But go ahead and spread your fears.

@ member: You should be the one providing proof that global warming does NOT exist, instead of being a troll here.

Oh wait, you don't have any evidence...

Global warming is a fiction thought up by profiteers.
