The comments thread below the original post really is worth reading. It includes a debate about “Gaia’s revenge” and how cities like LA have been sucking the water/life out of the land around them for decades; a fact which – at least according to some of the people commenting – has lead to the current state of affairs.

I’m sure we are all responsible for much of the increased environmental volatility in today’s world but the underlying reasons do not mitigate the human suffering involved — something I thought environmentalists, of all people, would be quick to recognise!
